My August Foodie Penpal Package
This month I got paired with Denine Gorniak, founder of three blogs, one of which is The Bicycle-Chef. Denine is one of the most considerate and kindest foodie penpals I have had yet. She is from Collingswood, New Jersey and enjoys trying new things and learning more about other sorts of diets, food stuffs, etc. She doesn’t get into anything faux (no fake sugars or fat substitutes) and if it’s good, she’ll try it in moderation. She put together a wonderful package I have been enjoying ever since I received it.
Normal Gets You NOWHERE by Kelly Cutrone
Kelly Cutrone is one of the BOLDEST, successful women out there and after reading this book, I have added her to my list of role models. I decided to purchase this book for two reasons: 1) the cover sparked my curiousity and 2) I couldn’t agree more with the name of the title- “NORMAL GETS YOU NOWHERE.” This book is realistic, daring, amusing and addicting. Once I started it, I could not put it down. I just wanted to read more and more about what Kelly had to say. After reading the titles of the chapters in the table of contents, I knew this would easily become one of my favorite books. Kelly also included passages from the Kalama Sutta, written by The Buddha. One line that stuck with me was “Do not follow tradition blindly merely because it has been practiced in that way for many generations.”
