Book Review: Outlander Kitchen by Theresa Carle-Sanders

It’s no secret that I have a tiny obsession with Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series and all things related to it.

But a friend with similar non-fiction tastes as me recommended it so I took the plunge. I’m so glad I did! Continue reading “Book Review: Originals by Adam Grant”
