For the month of June, the Quilters' Book Club is reading and discussing The Lover's Knot by Clare O'Donohue. It's the first book in her Someday Quilts Mystery Series.
In the book, main character Nell doesn't have very many skills in the kitchen. She says to her grandmother Eleanor, "I don't know how to make pancakes. I know how to make frozen waffles."
Eleanor replies, "Well, you'll learn how to make pancakes today. . . You eat, don't you? I don't know why people go around talking about how independent they are and then don't know how to take care of themselves in the most basic way. Get out the griddle." from page 184 The Lover's Knot
Here's another breakfast recipe Nell might enjoy learning how to make:
Coffee Cake¼ cup salad oil
1 egg, beaten
½ cup milk
2 teaspoons baking powder

*****Author Clare O'Donohue's book publicist contacted me and wanted to know if the Quilters' Book Club would be interested in a live Twitter chat with Clare. I don't know how many of you are familiar with Twitter and need to know how to respond to the publicist. Is this something you would want to participate in? Please answer in the comments section.*****
