Angie’s Awesome Finds

Looking for good recipes and book recommendations?  Have you visited  I spotted the pumpkin scones recipe right away, I don’t bake until the mood hits me (usually with the first snowfall)-but did you know our director is famous for her scones?  Perhaps we should talk her into trying this recipe and we’ll taste test for her!  

If you travel, have you checked out the Foodspotting? In addition to the website an apple and android app are also available.

If you are looking for the books featured on Joy’s  Oct. 23 What We’re Reading post, the titles available in MORE are: 

While the other titles are not currently available through MORE we are able to request through interlibrary loan via WISCAT and we’d be happy to request those for you when you stop by or call the reference desk at 715-234-4861 x18.  

  • A million little ways by Emily P. Freeman.
  • The Mac and Cheese Cookbook by Allison Arevalo and Erin Wade
  • The new complete book of pasta : an Italian cookbook by Maria Luisa Scott and Jack Denton Scott
  • The French Market Cookbook by Clotilde Dusoulier
  • Joy the Baker cookbook: 100 simple and comforting recipes by Joy Wilson.

Speaking of recipes….Do you have a favorite holiday recipe that friends and family look forward to each year?  And would you be willing to share it for a chance to win a free turkey? Beginning November 1st enter our Turkey Talks contest for a chance to win a free turkey! (Drawing held on November 21st).   Share your favorite recipe and/or story by dropping it off at the library, submitting via Facebook, or emailing it to

Just for the fun of it, I did a holiday recipe search in the Badger Link Database and found some more interesting titles and articles as well.  Why would I search for recipes in a database? If I could not make it in to the library during regular hours, databases are always available in RLPL’s Virtual Branch.  (Yes, for recipes-you’d probably check out a recipe blog but, you might want a recipe for Banana Bread that you saw in the Nov/Dec2009 American Fitness Magazine and this search would have located it!)

One more thing! We have weeded oodles of cookbooks from the non-fiction shelves and they are ready for the Friends of the Library Back Alley Book Store.  There are SO many that we have set up two tables in the Friendship Room for you to browse.
