Welcome to our blog!
Amy and Jennifer ARE Seduced by Books. We’re both in our 30’s, moms, close friends, work together, and share many of the same interests including our love of reading. Amy grew up in Maryland and has been obsessed with Vampires for as long as she can remember. Jenn grew up in Florida and loves the furry, the fey, and the fangs, in that order. Currently we are both in Orlando, FL. When we can be pulled away from books, Amy loves to bake and Jenn loves to take pictures and scrap.
We decided to create a place where we could direct friends, and acquaintances for, book suggestions/recommendations (Jenn’s been known to talk to strangers on the train while traveling in NYC). Once we started out with a simple page, we evolved from there. Now we are sharing our book reviews, fun comments, recipes, and giveaways. We try to give reviews on new releases, pre-releases, and oldies but goodies that we read, or are reading. We’re going to be adding author interviews for established and up and coming authors soon.

Jenn: I have to have sausage cornbread stuffing – it’s my mom’s recipe, I’ve had it at every holiday as far back as I remember.  I make it now to share with my kids and it’s become our family tradition. A holiday just isn’t the same without it, and if you invite me over, you can bet I’m bringing it as a side dish for your party too J

  9. I am a gfc follower and I love squash casserole! tracietrump@yahoo.com

  10. Definitely cookies! And that is a variety, not that big. I'm picky and have my faves and some things that are "all year round" like chocolate chip cookies and the dough and peanut butter cups/trees.

    I also like this new recipe we tried for gooey butter cookies, and peanut blossoms and of course our traditional cutout cookies and the dough! with homemade icing.--It's homemade but not a secret or anything, it's on the bag of powdered sugar, but it is oh so good!

  11. Oh gosh... There are so many options! I would have to say that my favourite holiday food would have to be white chocolate candy cane bark... Or those saltine cracker chocolate toff crunch cookie things (seriously, they look disgusting, but they are delicious!)...

    I am a follower!
