The books are our entry for The Book Date’sΒ  It’s Monday! What Are You Reading ? As always, I am reading several books, but I wanted to give these 2 cookbooks a shout out because they were written by LouLou’s Mom.

Rome at Home and No Need to Knead are both cookbooks by Suzanne Dunaway. I have been following her kitty LouLou’s blog for over a year and once in a while she posts a great recipe so I figured it was about time to check out the cookbooks. I haven’t had a chance to make anything yet, but I will as soon as I get done with Phoebe’s crown. I am planning to make English muffins and a French baguette from No Need to Knead. I also want to make potato gnocchi recipe in Rome at Home. badge

And last, but not least, I am joining Create With Joy’s Inspire Me Monday Hop. This is a fun hop that includes craft projects. recipes and so much more.. I thought the button art would qualify. DSCF1488Inspire Me Monday

Phoebe already has 12 names collected for the sunglasses to travel. She is still taking names and will display the badge tomorrow. This is going to be fun. Now I must go finish Phoebe’s crown or I will never hear the end of it.


  1. MOL you still didn’t finish Phoebe’s crown???? tsk tsk…she’ll be really unhappy about that.

    Great hops….we didn’t know any of them!

  2. Mom knew Loulou’s mom had written some cookbooks. She loves cookbooks and is going to look into getting at least of of them. Let us know if you try any of the recipes. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    1. I will let you know when I try a recipe- as soon as we get a cool day.

  3. You are so much fun. As always, you did great, keeping this all together! I have been out doing yard work, and seem to have little time for anything else, these days! Do you find that true?

    I am trying to sort out some health issues, too. Endless. Hugs, my friend.

    Now, go finish Ms Phoebe’s crown.

    1. Thank you, you are very sweet. I have allergies so I haven’t been outside much- see there is a good side to allergies πŸ™‚ I hope you feel better soon. XO

  4. Meowmy: Hmmm,we just had our late after evening church service supper, but now I am hungry again!
    Except we don’t eat breads and grains most of the time,MOL!

    You keep really busy with all your hopping work! Love that you are showing us all you do:)

    WBS mews: Work on that crown now, Phoebe needs it:)

    Meowmy: No time for any long walks today…though the weather was pawrfect! Maybe Tuesday, as I have to go to work tomorrow. Oh, mostly I average 3 1/2 miles or more at my work…no need for outside strolls on my working days, MOL!

    It will be fun to see how P & M look in those shades…tee-hee!

    1. That is a lot of miles clocked at work- wow! MJF can try the shades too, but they might be too small. πŸ™‚

  5. Well you are hopping all over the place today! We’re staying PUT as we had a busy weekend. Good luck getting Phoebe’s crown done before she has a fit………girls need their crowns or they can’t be true Princesses!

    Hugs, Sammy

  6. Mom refuses to cook so I will recommend these books to my Auntie! Hmmm – will the crown be traveling as well?

    1. Good idea for the crown to travel, but this one is paper so it wouldn’t survive.

  7. I love to bake and cook, and to experiment with recipes overall. These cookbooks sound great. I’ll definitely have to check them out.

    Now, you best finish that crown so that lovely Phoebe can show it off. I know I for one can’t wait to see it!

    1. I think you will like the cook books. Phoebe is not happy with my crowns.

  8. That girl is going to be so happy when gets her crown. Our mom started a new book series – Ali Brandon’s Black Cat Book shop mysteries. Hamlet is a gorgeous housepanther who watches over both his home and the bookstore, and looks after his hoomin. It’s a cute series.

    1. I will have to look into that series, it does sound good- usually anything with a cat is great.

  9. Make sure I’m on the list for the traveling sunglasses! Better get that crown all shined up and pretty, or Phoebe is gonna be mad

  10. Awww on the poser Phoebe. What a cutie.

    I love your button art. That is so very cool.

    Luv ya’


    1. I am sure she would enjoy these books. Phoebe is not happy with her crowns, I need to do more work.

  15. I would like to know if you try any of the recipes. I love trying new dishes. Much to hubby’s chagrin. LOL

    Our reading hour consists of the 3rd book, Accidental Angel, in the Black Cat series by Elaine Faber. This book is the best of the three books and very hard to put down.


    1. Same here- my hubby doesn’t like new recipes, but sometimes he is pleasantly surprised. That sounds like a good series, I love anything with cats-as long as it doesn’t make me cry.

  16. Cookbooks are always fun, I have one in my review pile I am looking forward to posting about. I like the look of the Inspire Me Monday post so I am going to click over.

  17. We don’t know Lou Lou, so we’re going to hop on over to her blog and meet her! Is it too late to join the sunglasses travel? I loved the bikini!

    1. Never too late to join the traveling sunglasses, we are thrilled you want to try them.

  18. We don’t know LouLou but it will be fun for you to try our her human’s recipes! Let us know how they turn out πŸ™‚ Phoebe , we bet your crown is going to be as spectacular as you are πŸ™‚

    the critters in the cottage xo

  19. Those books look like great choices, i hope your very good looking cat approves!

    1. I like to cook, but only easy things so I understand. I am glad you like the button art, I bet your Mom could do even better.

  20. Oh, my, mama just about fainted this morning when she read your blog over my shoulder! She was smiling all day and snuggling me and wishing she could make crowns with your mama and hoping SO much that when YOUR mama starts to cook from MY mama’s cookbooks, she will feel free to email with any comments or questions at all because mama loves to hear about what happens in other kitchens, PLUS. even I make focaccia, which is really the bread to start with because it is so easy and will fill your mouth with the taste of Italy. So thank you so, so much for liking mama’s books. I have to say that crown or no crown, you are one of the most beautiful creamy-colored kitties I have had the pleasure to meet. And the crowns are temporary, remember…just humor your mom.

    1. I am glad your Mom liked the post. I will let you know when I try to make something, I will start with the focaccia. XO

    1. I am glad she is interested and how lucky she can make potato gnocchi, I hope I can too. Thank you for visiting our blog too.
