cat lady chic


Typically, the term “cat lady” evokes images of an unfashionable, unkempt and slightly unhinged spinster hoarding multiple cats. Cat Lady Chic serves up the antidote, celebrating the Cat Lady with a compilation of artful, playful and sophisticated images of some of the most renowned, beautiful and accomplished women in modern history with the cats they love. Diane Lovejoy proves that Cat Ladies come from an impressive lineage, one that should be regarded with pride. Enjoy scores of photos of felines paired with famous feline fans.


sheet pan suppers


Look no further for elegant, satisfying complete meals; unparalleled flavors and irresistible textures; easy prep, cooking and clean up! Sheet pan cooking means roasting, broiling and baking – three methods that concentrate and intensify flavor. All you do is toss the ingredients on a pan and pop it in the oven. The result: meats are juicy and tender, potatoes are crispy and vegetables are caramelized and slightly sweet, fruit is syrupy, and desserts are decadent. Sheet Pan Suppers: 120 Recipes for Simple, Surprising, Hands-off Meals Straight from the Oven by Molly Gilbert reinvents the one-pot meal impressively and effortlessly.
