October 29th, 2011

Pork Tenderloin with Cinnamon Scented Sweet Potatoes and Apples By Pat Sinclair NABBW’s Cooking for Two Expert Pork tenderloin is a lean, healthy cut of pork and is just the right size for two servings.

City of Veils

October 28th, 2011

City of Veils Author: Zoe Ferraris Website: http://www.zoeferraris.com/ Reviewed By: Anne Holmes for the NABBW This was a fascinating read. The author, who moved to Saudi Arabia after the first Gulf War to live with her then husband and his extended family of Saudi-Palestinian Bedouins, writes with authority. As a result, she is able to provide the reader with a searing portrait of the religious and cultural veils that separate Muslim women from the modern world. Certainly we have all heard horror stories of how women are treated in Saudi Arabia, but this novel goes beyond stereotypes and focuses... Read More
