Make + Listen

Make:

This past week I finally got around to making a dessert my friend Krista made a couple of years ago. I've been wanting to make it for a long time. It's perfect for summer: cold, creamy, refreshing, and citrusy. It's called Lemon Ice Cream Pie and oh so delicious! It does take some planning ahead, as each layer needs to freeze, but it's really not hard at all and totally worth it!

Listen:

The latest book I listened to on audiobook was Left Neglected by Lisa Genova. It's fiction, but deals with a type of brain disorder I'd never heard of, in layman's terms called "left neglect." The title has a double meaning within the context of the story. It's about a career woman who's life as she knows it grinds to a halt after an auto accident. It deals with her recovery, as well as her internal struggle with what it means to live a "successful" life.
