October-November 2012 Cook the Books Selection Reminder and Judge Announcement

I hope everybody had a nice Thanksgiving. With the big November holiday behind us, I thought I would send out into the world a gentle reminder about our October-November selection and also announce the judge for this edition of Cook the Books.

As previously announced, we are currently reading Heartburn by Nora Ephron. The deadline for sharing with us your thoughts about the book and the recipe it inspired you to make is Monday, December 3.

And I have the pleasure to announce our judge: please, join me in welcoming Laura Lippstone who writes the travel blog Planet Lippstone and is also a contributor to The Huffington Post. She "has been traveling since her teens, when she would gaze at the ocean at the Jersey Shore and vow to discover what was beyond the horizon."

Recent entries in her blog describe her trip on the the Eastern & Oriental Express. It's a trip I will never take, so I enjoyed reading Laura's travel notes and impressions.

In the next ten days, make sure you finish reading Heartburn, if you have not already done so, and share with us your thoughts and your recipe. I will write the roundup shortly after the deadline and then Laura will do her judging.

Hope to hear from you soon!
