This weekend I bought some new books.
But not the kind of books I usually buy.
These are cookbooks - for me!
I had been eyeing Katie Brown's Weekend's book on the clearance rack for a while.
Then when I found her Outdoor Entertaining book on the clearance rack too, I just couldn't resist.
Especially after reading this lovely ladies endorsement for Katie's work.
I have been a Katie fan for years, ever since she had a decorating show on Lifetime.
Oh, the good ole' days.
But more and more I find I want to cook, but I want to cook things that are simple & yummy.
I mean, I love Julia but simple she is not.
So Katie may just be my ticket.
I mean, she even has a recipe for Lamp Chops that I feel good about.
And cheese wafers! I swear she read my mind on this one...
Tonight will be the first true test however, because after pouring over both books this weekend, I have decided to try her Harvest Bread Pudding first.
I will let you know how it goes...
in the meantime you can check out Katie for yourself online here
