Recipe for a Head Cold

While recently at the library, I came across this book.  I just finished it.

It’s about an adventurous couple from Toronto who jumped on their sailboat, and tasted and ate their way through the Caribbean.  I love the Caribbean! 

But that’s a story for another time.

I love books like these, wonderful stories that include RECIPES! 


Here’s my little sidebar to this book, incidentally.  While I was absorbed with this book, Zen Mum caught a head cold.  Her nose was stuffed and she had to breathe out of her mouth, it was so bad.  This went on through the week, despite taking tons of cold medicine.  Nothing seemed to help and she was just miserable.

There is a recipe for Ginger Tea in the Spice Necklace.  It’s in Chapter 17, on page 430. 

I’m paraphrasing here, but among many other ailments, Ginger Tea “is said to relieve head colds.” 

So I whipped some up for Zen Mum.  Outcome?

It’s true when they say that a picture is worth a thousand words.


Note:  I love reading and I love books.  I’m sure that Ann Vanderhoof is a nice lady but she doesn’t know me from Adam.  She didn’t ask me to write anything and I’m not getting one penny for posting about her book.  I just wanted to share.  Just so we’re clear.
