The Reading Corner: October 2012

The Reading CornerThe Reading Corner is a monthly series where I share some of my favorite links from around the web, must-read books, and some of the recipes I’ve pinned recently. Pull up a comfy chair and get ready for some fun reads!

  1. Great list of reads, Mindy. Thanks for including my take on English food– I do wish I had a much better report for you… But, rest assured, London is a GREAT place for some exciting meals. You come to the country to pet sheep and drink cider, though…
