I love food trucks…as an eater and a cook. I obviously love to eat food, hence why I love to eat from food trucks. But as someone who develops recipes and does food photography for a living, I absolutely love the spark of creativity I get from eating at a food truck.

Food trucks, at least around here, have a lot of pressure to be really good and unique. We have some amazing restaurants in Kansas City, and not so many food trucks. There isn’t any hiding among a ton of trucks hoping to squeak by… you either serve amazing food, or your gone.

5 Books I’ve Loved Lately

A selection and review of 5 books I’ve read and loved lately! Come share what you’ve read and loved lately.
A List of 5 Books I've Loved Reading Lately on dineanddish.net

I love summer! If you don’t know that about me by now, you certainly will after this summer is over. I love the relaxed schedule and longer days…not to mention the increased opportunity for reading time. I always take a book with me wherever I go, but I seem to have more time to actually read it in the summer! It’s always easier to get absorbed in a great book when I go to bed and stay up later reading, knowing I don’t have to get up extra early to take the kids to school.

I’ve read some great books recently, and thought it would be a good time to share some good reads with you in case you have extra reading time too! Of course, you can always find my most up to date reads on Goodreads. Make sure to follow me over there for instant reading recs. Until then, here are 5 books I’ve read and loved a lot lately and hope you will too!…
