We got a release from a new author today, which we usually ignore, but this one was too good to pass up. It read: “James Kaleda publishes a new book which aims to increase the variety of breakfast entrees available in homes around the world. Pancake is an easy-to-follow cookbook with fifty two recipes, including more than ten recipes which can be made using popular pre-made pancake mixes.” Seriously dude: A PANCAKE cookbook?! And we really liked his bio signoff at the end: “James Kaleda has over 10 years experience in the culinary arts. He graduated “best in class” from Warren County Vo-Tec.” That’s all it takes to get published? Oh, we are SO going to write a “Short Takes” book.
