I Always Wanted To Live Next Door To An Author...


...and now I do!

An unexpected bonus to moving house:  My friend and new neighbor, Dina Porell, recently wrote and published an e-book of recipes from her native Egypt.  Dina is a wonderful cook; I've been lucky enough to taste several of her creations.  I'm looking forward to sitting down and reading her cookbook.  I'll try to choose a time when the smells from her kitchen are wafting down the hallway so I can get the full, blissful effect.

I'll have to remember this when we're looking for our next house...new neighbors MUST be chefs/authors! And while I'm dreaming, if the other neighbors were housecleaners I'd be a seriously happy softdrink.

how lovely that you have a good cook as a neighbor as well as an author! multi-talented, indeed. HOw are you settling in to your new apartment? Do you have enough bookshelves? :-D

Yes! tell all! I would like to see some of these culinary creations. Do tell.

No, I've never even heard of The Dog Farm. The book, I mean. The real thing -- yes, unfortunately.
