Need a suggestion for something to read or watch from the library this weekend? Maybe you'd like to check out an ebook or audiobook? Try some of our Staff Picks, to find what some of the other people in our parish are enjoying.

We know that not every staff pick will appeal to every patron, but not to worry! If you need help selecting something, we have online tools like Book Browse and our Online Catalog, or you can ask one of our friendly staff members to help search for you.

Sweet and Simple: Dessert for Two by Christina Lane

My staff pick is Sweet & Simple: Dessert for Two by Christina Lane. It is a book filled with cupcake and cookie recipes just enough for two people. You would think you could just half a recipe but it doesn’t always work. It’s not about the math but about the science.

This book is great because it has done the math and science for you. So when you want just a little something you can have a cookie or cupcake batch of about 6.

The recipes include: Coconut Sugar Cookies, Gooey Butter Cake Cookies, Mini Moon Pies, Maple Syrup Cupcakes, and Pecan Pie Bars. Every recipe has an inviting picture to inspire you to try it.

If Sweet and Simple: Dessert for Two interests you, feel free to request or check it out. We'll be back next Thursday with a different Staff Pick.
