Babycakes Book Recommendation

Simple Times: Crafts for Poor PeopleIt's been a little while since I've done a book recommendation so today I would like to highlight a hysterical and fun book, by the comedic genius Amy Sedaris, titled Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People

With her witty sense of humor, you almost feel like she is crafting beside you!  This is not a super-serious Martha Stewart type guide but if you like Sedaris, then you already know that! With sections like Crafting for Jesus and Knowing Your Knack for Knickknacks - you'll be amused for sure.

I Like You: Hospitality Under the InfluenceHer first book, I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence is a very tongue-in-cheek guide to throwing parties. With "more than 100 recipes with menus for dozens of occasions (or not), from blind date at home to table for one (an evening alone, that is, with steak and salad). Her recipes, by the way, are no rivals to the Culinary Institute of America; for instance, the directions for "carrot coins" call for slicing carrots so they look like coins and sauteing with butter, salt, and pepper."

While these books might not be for everyone, I encourage you to check them out if your humor tends to be on the deviant side :)
