And while these books probably aren’t in your recipient’s bookshelf, many of them should be. So, if you’re thinking of giving unique gifts this year, consider these titles. Each costs around $40 USD or less:

Cookie Cravings by Maria Lichty and Heidi LarsenWe all have cookie cravings. Popular food blogger Maria Lichter decided to put them into something deliciously original: A baking book featuring 30 recipes you won’t find anywhere else.

Dog by My Side by Adam SchnitzerThis charming collection of original, vintage photos shows us that as long as there have been cameras, we’ve wanted to photograph our canine best friends. As a special bonus, there’s a glossary of the early photographic methods used in the original images. 

Around the World with a Toy Camera by Giorgio GiussaniPerfect for the photography or graffiti-art fan on your list. This book is an explosion of gritty color that explores the wonders of street art and analog photography. 

Food Stories by Elena ScottA short, wonderfully illustrated collection of recipes (and food stories) that will inspire you to pick up the knife and spatula—or just pen and paper. 

Things I Love by Carol Nehls and Jessica RoseIllustrated and written many years apart by a mother and daughter, this sweet rhyming story told by a fox is pure joy for all ages.

Patent Pending by Jordan NatyshenChicken goggles, air-conditioned rocking chairs, monkey jockeys for greyhounds… humankind has invented and sought to patent some amazing and crazy things. Illustrator Jordan Natyshen illustrates some of the strangest in this history of odd inventions. 

Tiny Horses are Everywhere by Thea LuxThe perfect stocking-stuffer for fans of off-beat humor, this undeniably nutty book is based on a Tumblr blog and combines simple photo collages of small horses in human environments with incredibly funny captions.

Rouleaux by Anastassia EliasWhat can you do with an empty roll of toilet paper? If you’re French artist Anastassia Elias, you create tiny dioramas inside of the discarded tubes. Inspired by art and movies, these pieces are beautifully crafted, fun, and unbelievably detailed. 

Low Fidelity by Bobby GrossmanIf you, or someone you love, listened to New York punk and new wave in the 70s, chances are your favorite artist can be found in this book. Bobby Grossman photographed Iggy Pop, David Byrne, The Ramones, Debbie Harry, Andy Warhol and many more. This book is a time capsule of—and a love letter to—a legendary time, place, and sound.

Thanksgiving and The History of a Roy Rogers and Shirley Temple Drink

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!
Charly and I wish you and your families a wonderful day, with lots of blessings.

Someone sent me a comment the yesterday, and it sparked this post.  She had never heard of a Roy Rogers, so I decided checked the history of a how both the Roy Rogers and Shirley Temples got their names.

The Shirley Temple came first, there are different versions of how it came about.  One is that the bartender at Chasen's in Beverly Hills decided to make a special drink for Shirley Temple who was eating there with her parents.  Another version is that the Brown Derby in Hollywood made the non alcoholic drink and named it after her, since they named a lot of their drinks after various actors and actresses back then.  It is also said that the Royal Hawaiian came up with the drink since she and her family vacationed at their hotel a lot back then.  Whatever the history is it seems that the Shirley Temple came to be a drink sometime in the late 1930's or early 1940's.

The history of the Roy Rogers is a little murkier.  Apparently, Roy Rogers did not drink alcohol.  So this may be one reason that a non alcoholic drink was named after him.  They say maybe this is just the boy version of a Shirley Temple.  It sounds a little more masculine for a boy to ask for a Roy Rogers then a Shirley Temple.

I hope this answers any questions about these two drinks.  Just some fun little tidbit of trivia to stuff in the back of your brain.  They were very common for kids to order in the 60's, at least in Los Angeles.

Have a great Thanksgiving!!!
