Saltie is a tiny sandwich shop in Brooklyn that my daughter adores. She gave me their cookbook for Christmas and to my delight, I savored each and every page.  It has the best focaccia recipe, made to cut into squares, split and use for sandwiches. There is homemade mayonnaise, pesto and pistou...all that will guarantee the most delectable sandwiches. If you think you know how to make eggs, you must read the recipes for Soft-Scrambled and Sunny Eggs Three Ways, even Hard Boiled and Pickled!!!  Buy it, read it, cook from it, you will be delighted.

Gillian Flynn captured my attention with her portrayal of the “perfectly,” amazing, Amy Elliott Dunne and her husband, Nick.  This psychological suspense novel is a story about a marriage gone wrong.  It’s about Amy, the cool girl and Nick, her handsome husband; what they do to attract each other and how they evolve over the years while attempting to maintain this “perfect” marriage.  On their 5th anniversary, Amy goes missing…from that moment on, the plot is full of twists and turns. If you are a fan of riveting suspense novels, Gillian Flynn’s, Gone Girl is for you.
