favorite things

I'm currently in search of the mystical *perfect* mascara. Something that makes my lashes look like a 40's starlet and only costs a few bucks. Is that too much to ask for? The other day I emailed a few friends who have lovely lashes and asked them their favs. Then it occurred to me...hey wouldn't it be fun to run a list of my fav things on my blog? I'm not trying to focus on materialism; but let's face it, we are all consumers. We purchase, therefore we live. And when I think of how many brands of soap I had to try until I found the perfect one...why shouldn't I share my brand-love with others? Maybe you will love them too. And by all means feel free to comment back with your favs or your experiences trying my favs. It won't always be products, sometimes books, websites, recipes and who knows what else. Why should Oprah & Martha have all the fun ;-)

So here is my first Favorite Thing: Tastebook

This is a great concept! Beautiful custom cookbooks for a great price. I was introduced to Tastebook when my good friend Mary Beth got one as a gift from her daughter. I thought it was a wonderful idea and so I made a custom cookbook for my Mom last Christmas. I borrowed her favorite recipes scrawled on varying slips of paper and recipe cards and put it all in this tidy book. They also offer a ton of recipes and customized cookbooks that are already organized. But I love the idea of being able to make your own. You pick your own cover art, font colors, recipes, etc - I think you can even upload your own photos to print on the recipe pages. Pretty nifty, huh? Enjoy ;-)
