He – She Groovy Jewelry

He-She Jewelry
Professional “Know How”

When I found this lovely selection for ALB, I couldn’t stop laughing. I particularly love the manly look of jewelry and leisure suit. I think we have all learned from these pictures that the right accessories really do tie an outfit together.

Getting my groove on!

Desserts from the Fridge

250 Luscious Refrigerator Desserts
Berolzheimer, ed.

For those of you with a sweet tooth, here is your source for all sorts of treats that use your fridge/freezer. Of course there are recipes for ice cream, Baked Alaskas, cookies, pies and puddings. Unfortunately, the black and white photography doesn’t really help with appeal factors. The cover shot is ice cream, in case you didn’t recognize the food. (I had to look several times to be sure). However, if you like your food with a creepy face, check out the second picture after the text.

Oozing from every pore

Oozing for My Lord

Another unfortunate title in our ALB line up. The author, however, insists that this title came to her. This book is actually decent enough as a memoir/personal faith story. The contents are totally appropriate for a general religion section, but I just can’t get past the oozing.
