I love how-to home books–recipes, projects, organizational tips. I love them so much, that I am a pretty easy shot at the supermarket checkout line…I often thumb through Martha Stewart, Rachel Ray, Real Simple and have to display huge amounts of restraint not to bring them all home 🙂
That being said, I was pretty excited to get the opportunity from the One2One network to preview a copy of Heather Solos's book Home-Ec 101, based on her blog of the same name. I was actually pretty disappointed when, as a result of too much interest in the campaign, I was only given one chapter to read: Meal Planning:Not Just for the Control Freaks. I was even more disappointed that it was the chapter on meal planning, because that it not the area that I really need the most advice.
