Death Has Come Up Into Our Windows is one of those things that you run across and immediately know it will be either amazing or awful - and nowhere in between. It's the first book in the Zombie Bible series; when I ran across the Kindle edition for $2.99, I had to try it.
On a completely different note, I also checked out Lard: The Lost Art of Cooking with Your Grandmother's Secret Ingredient by the editors of Grit magazine. Focused on simple food made from real ingredients, this book was well designed and easy to use. Clearly it was put together by people who know their way around a kitchen! It won't do me much good at the moment, since real (non-hydrogenated, unadulterated) lard is hard to come by around here. but if you have access to lard I recommend grabbing a copy of this for your shelf. It covers baked goods, vegetables - all kinds of variety to the recipes, and no complicated or expensive kitchen equipment involved.
That's it! Short post today, just passing along some good things. Enjoy!
