Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Signature Series Guide

Posted by Linda | 3:56 PM

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Signature Series Guide - The last time I bought the soft-back of this book was over a year ago. Back then, they just released the game and I could not wait to get my hands on it. The game was one of the best then and I could not wait for the second version. So, to hear that the Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Signature Series Guide is out is a big thing for me.

As a keen follower of the Marvel vs. Capcom 3 series, I know what it means. You just have to play the game to get an idea of the huge interest for some of us who are avid fans. I know most people love world of war craft, but for me this is the game of the year. I even have the tshirt and materials to crown everything up.

For this week only, I will be spending time of this awesome collector's edition - just to enjoy it before it becomes very common and easily available on the market. As a true fan, there's nothing greater than having this book with it's cool hardback and added commentary. But for those who can't afford the collector's version, there's the standard version which I guess covers the same thing. I have not checked though as I'm interested in that.

If you manage to get the standard copy and you think it contains the same thing, please leave a comment below. But for me, my order for Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Signature Series Guide is on its way.

Slow Cooker Revolution

Posted by Linda | 3:45 PM

This is THE ONE if you are thinking of buying a slow cooker cook book. Actually, this is much more than a cookbook. This book is completely logical, clearly written, with a well-thought-through page layout, and is visually delightful.

There is very useful information on different types of slow cookers, how to determine if your cooker works "hotter" or not from others and very simple keys to success, besides all the mouth watering recipes (200 of them!). Every page makes it worth the asking price. We got so hungry reading the recipes that we quickly made the cranberry sauce. Wow! The best sauce we have ever had and so easy!

There are 13 chapters separated into various types of foods; e.g. Pasta sauces, "on the side", soups, chilies, casseroles and even desserts. Each recipe includes why the recipe works and some kind of tip such as "smart shopping" which includes a description and picture of an ingredient. This is especially helpful to home cooks who might be unfamiliar with ingredients like curry paste--what it is, where to get it, and what to look for in purchasing it.

There are also dozens of "quick prep tips"--pictures such as trimming blade steak, shredding meat, bruising lemon grass, etc. Many recipes include a very suitable "on the side" dish. There are several full page descriptions with pictures to explain techniques developed by the authors such as making foil collars and slings when cooking some items, correctly cooking pasta, all about herbs, carving a chicken and all about chicken in the slow cooker and the most handy of all, "all about beef" which describes all the types of cuts of beef and the best use for them.

In our home, we have been huge fans of slow cookers for a long time and believe we are quite capable as cooks. We know a lot of different ingredients, terms, tips, have dozens of cookbooks etc. but, if we had to choose only one cook book to save in a disaster THIS IS THE ONE!
