Reading List Suggestions

This must be one of the funniest blogs I have ever read, and its author sounds suspiciously like me: Ezra Pound Cake, a cook-o-centric blog written by an English major, writer, baker, and all-around foodie whose name is Rebecca. And her husband's name starts with J. I'm not making this up.

Anyway, I just discovered Ezra Pound Cake and I'm delighted to make its acquaintance. The writing is fabulous (in an irreverently clever and sometimes sketchy manner), and the recipes look equally fabulous (planning to make the coconut cupcakes and rosemary roasted sweet potatoes verrrry soon).

In the real-book realm, I'm finishing David McCullough's biography of Harry Truman (aptly titled Truman) and would highly recommend it. Just read The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton in preparation for a new American Lit class I'm developing for the fall, and that's great too. I love counting book purchases as "business expenses" . . .


  1. Hey,

    Went to Ezra Pound Cake.

    You write much better.
    You don't stoop to crass verbiage simply to make a point...

    All the same I'll stick with Laffy Taffy.
