Book Review: There Are No Dragons In This Book by Donna Lambo-Weidner

Image
There Are No Dragons In This Book by Donna Lambo-Weidner is a children's book where kids look to make sure there are no dragons in the book.  The expected publication date is March 5, 2024.  I'd like to thank NetGalley for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of this book. I have to say that I was a bit disappointed in this picture book.  I didn't care for the story, and it's not something I would likely read to a child.  I also didn't like that the story actually did have dragons in it only because I feel like a child might be upset that they were mislead.  However, I'm not the target audience, so kids may love it. On a positive note, I did enjoy the colorful illustrations.  It definitely gives the reader a lot to look at.  Three out of five stars is what I gave There Are No Dragons In This Book by Donna Lambo-Weidner.

Product Review: Swanson Beef Broth

I received a Vox Box from Influenster.com that had Swanson Beef Broth in it for free in exchange for my honest review. I've never used Swanson's Beef Broth before. However, I have used their Chicken Broth before and had good results with it, so I was excited to try it out a different product by Swanson.

Typically, I eat more chicken than I do beef, so I didn't know what I wanted to make. I perused Pinterest for beef recipes that called for beef broth. I narrowed it down to beef stew and shepard's pie. Eventually, I settled on making Shepard's Pie with ground beef instead of lamb. The recipe was very simple and easy to follow.

Once I made the filling, I divided it in two small casserole dishes. The recipe made so much food, that I couldn't eat it all and ended up giving the second dish to my parent's neighbors. The neighbors enjoyed it and made two meals out of it. Things I would've changed in the recipe is I would have used more of the Swanson Beef Broth and less of the rosemary. However, the beef broth made a little gravy in the Shepard's Pie, which was a very welcome addition in my opinion.

Five out five stars is what I gave Swanson Beef Broth as it is a quality product, and it will be my go to broth to use the next time I need some for a recipe. It has a great flavor without being too overpowering. The container is easy to open and pour into a measuring cup. Next time, I will try the Swanson Beef Broth in a beef stew.
