Things We Love – Bedtime Nursery Rhymes

This lovely collection of nursery rhymes is the creation of Jay Harris, an independent musician from London. I love his new, soothing twist on the most classic and familiar lullabys: Curly Locks; It’s Raining, It’s Pouring; Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star, Rock-a-Bye Baby, Kum Ba Yah; and Brahms’ Lullaby.

Each of the 6 tracks creates a soothing, almost magical effect and is designed to create a natural progression toward sleep. Try it, and not just for bedtime and naptime. If your kids are bouncing off the walls, put it on for a little quiet time.

Harris says the almost-meditative effect of listening to the music is best gained through setting your music player EQ on ‘Flat’ and by setting the first track at a reasonable volume. Each track gets gradually quieter.

Check out brief samples of each track at the website BedtimeNurseryRhymes.com You can purchase the CD directly at this site, as well. Download it for $5.94 or purchase the CD for $6.70 (with an additional $4.30 shipping worldwide.)

Best Summer Weekend Cookbook

Things We Love – Best Summer Weekends Cookbook
Where to buy: www.amazon.com
Review by: APCKelly

I love food. Especially summer food, with its fresh, ripe vegetables and mouthwatering, luscious fruits.

As a supreme lover of such delicacies and delectable delights, I am always on the lookout for great cookbooks. Even my kids love to page through the cookbooks at home and decide what to try out next. I was initially attracted to The Best Summer Weekends Cookbook because of its beautifully designed cover of mouth-watering watermelon, shrimp, tomato, lemon.

The inside of this book is as appealing as the outside. More than 75 recipes, perfect for entertaining friends and family or delicious day-to-day summer cooking. The color photographs make it one of our favorites to flip through to get inspired.

The recipes are varied and include appetizers, starters, sundown snacks, delicious BBQ recipes, summer salads, light main courses perfect for a summer’s day, to breakfast and brunch ideas and amazing desserts. I am sure you will love to try the delicious Mocha Ice Cream Loaf – or how about a refreshing Tabouleh salad and Thai Green Chicken Wings?

The ingredients used in the recipes are relatively easy to come by, but they are seasonal. (Each recipe gives ideas on how to substitute certain ingredients if they are not to hand.)

Overall, this cookbook has an exciting array of summer recipes that will please anybody. I am sure you will get a lot of joy out of trying out these fantastic and mouth-watering dishes.

Here are a few more summer cookbooks to try:
