-funny-bone limericks

 A "greeting card"  cookbook with favorite Dessert Recipes and Limericks too!

Great Hostess Gift!

Stocking Stuffer!


The limerick packs laughs anatomical

Into space that is quite economical

But the good ones I've seen

So seldom are clean.

And the clean ones so seldom are comical

Author Review:

    Portia Little Food columnist, editor and feature writer for newspapers and magazines, Portia Little is an expert at food and fun.
    Pursuing her passion for great food, Little decided to make a career of food writing. Her fervor brought her to deciding to pen her own cookbooks. Not wanting to be another Rachael Ray, Little decided to create her own niche by writing souvenir cookbooks. They are small spiral-bound cookbooks that are filled with delicious recipes, as
well as other interests of the author. Deciding to self-publish, she claimed complete control over her cookbooks, and what a delight they are.
(Jennifer Wickes, food writer)

"Recipes Roses & Rhymes"
Some of my favorite recipes from this book are: Fresh Apple Cake, Chicken Salad with Grapes, Four-Layer Blueberry Dessert and Oven Roast Potatoes.
    Each recipe is preceded by a quote from a poem. Shakespeare, Robert Burns, Percy Bysshe Shelley and more penned some of the quotes you
will see.
    Her recipes are easy-to-follow and delicious. They do not require unusual ingredients or equipment. Just great food that bring her family favorites to your plate.

"The Easy Vegetarian"
Some of my favorite recipes from this book are: Fresh Peach Crumble, Roasted Vegetables, and Tomato Bruschetta.
    Again, Portia finds fitting quotes to precede each recipe, bringing her love of food and literature together. You will find quotes from the Bible, Albert Einstein, Mark Twain, as well as others.
   With this book, you can create healthy meals for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike!

"New England Seashore Recipes & Rhymes"
After numerous vacations to New England, Portia decided to create this little nugget of some of New England's favorite recipes.
    Some of my favorite recipes from this book are: Brandied Apple Pie, Lime Grilled Salmon, Sweet Potato Biscuits and Quick Zucchini Pancakes.
    Each recipe is preceded by a quote from New England Poetry, which help create the atmosphere of being in New England when one cannot.
    Her recipes make you feel like you have gone to the shore.

"Lusty Limericks & Luscious Desserts"
Some of my favorite recipes from this book are: Kahlua Cake, Pineapple Macadamia Charlotte and a Hummingbird Cake.
    Each recipe is preceded by some racy limericks, as the title suggests. They are all in good taste and quite funny.
    These tasty desserts will have you on a romantic adventure of your own!

"Finger Lakes Food, Fact & Fancy"
Having lived in the Finger Lake region of New York State for years, why not pen a book on the experience? Anyone who has been to the region knows of the beautiful landscape, the delicious award-winning wines, and a slower life that makes trips there so enjoyable.
   Some of my favorite recipes from this book are: Keuka Lake Wine Cake, The Spiedie and Harvest Carrot and Walnut Soup.
   Each recipe is preceded by facts concerning upstate New York. Some of them are amusing, others are very interesting, but in every case, you learn to appreciate this area much more.
   These recipes make you feel as if you have traveled to the Finger Lakes on a weekend trip.
