I have been known to judge a book by its cover. I love love love when a book has a beautiful and intriguing cover, shouting “pick me! pick me!” from the shelves.
There are some beautiful covers coming up in 2012, awarded the best in design from the Australian Publishers Association.
Best Designed Cover of the Year: The Art of Pasta - Lucio Galletto and David Gale (Penguin)
If you also appreciate great covers and design, I encourage you to check out The Book Cover Archive. But beware, it is incredibly comprehensive and will easily distract you from other tasks…

Yeah, so I don’t have a recipe today…just two different snacks that I’ve made lately.
One is super healthy, tasty, and has some sort of nutritional value:
And one is just plain comforting:
I just finished reading the best little book, What We Eat When We Eat Alone” by Deborah Madison. After reading it, I didn’t feel quite as bad about my ultimate guilty pleasure snack: butter on saltines (I know, I know…). When I was little, my grandmother would “make” this snack for me. Whenever I’m feeling melancholy or when I want something undoubtedly satisfying, I make myself a plate of these.
Bonus: this week I found the most perfect accompanying beverage: a bloody mary sans vodka…is that weird?
Also, if you notice, I tried to health it up a bit–Earth Balance and whole wheat Zestas do the trick, right? Ha!
