I'm Reading " Muffins and Mayhem"

I have a book I want to share with you.  It is called "Muffins and Mayhem" by Suzanne Beecher.   Suzanne is the creator of, an online book club.  If you like to read you should check this sight out.  I have been reading Suzanne's Dear Reader column for several years.  You can choose what types of books you want excerpts from, a five minute read Monday through Friday.  I have chosen Fiction, Romance and Non-Fiction.  My intent was to find new books to order for my library customers.  I don't always have time to read the book excerpt but always read the Dear Reader column.

Here I have my muffin, my book and just need to brew some tea

Suzanne's book has many recipes, I have used some of her recipes that I have read about in her column.
Her Chicken Waikiki Beach recipe has become a family favorite.

The cover is great.
It seems like I know Suzanne, after reading her Dear Reader column for a few years.

When I heard that her book was being published I pre-ordered it.  I let Suzanne know that I had ordered her book for myself and she sent me this bookplate.

I am going to get started on this book tonight and I am sure it will be a great read.  I'll keep you posted.
I hope you didn't think you were lost when you came to visit my blog.  I wanted to make my blog a little more personal and ended up making some major changes.  I still have some tweaking to do with the header.  What do you think about the changes?


  1. Your blog looks good. I need to figure out how to do some changes on mine. The book sounds interesting.

  2. Love your new look!! I may need to go do some tweaking myself!

  3. Hi Sherry!

    Thank-you for stopping by! The book looks charming.

    Have a lovely weekend!

  4. Thank you for the recomendation. It can be so hard for me to find a good cookbook anymore.

    Sherry~ I wanted to visit your blog and introduce myself. My name is Sherry... (what a great name huh?) and I am a new Bloggerette Sorority Sister. I have only been blogging for a few weeks so I missed out on the rush, but I look forward to joining in on the fun in the future. I would be honored if you would visit my blog at Thanks and I hope to see you soon!

  5. I think the blog looks great! You know so many more tricks than me. I'll take a muffin please...and can I sneak a little coffee in that pretty cup? Way down south here we haven't learned the art of drinking hot tea. Cold sweet tea, now that's a different story. Great site, great book, and I'm sure it'd be great company over that muffin.

  6. Loving the changes! Excited to see the other fun, crafty things you have in store!
