Review: Off the Menu by Stacey Ballis

Hi everyone! Sorry for the lack of posts :( I was away for the long week-end and had prepared posts for it which I was happy I was able to accomplish LOL. But coming back, well there was lack of sleep and lack of time. Seriously, this whole week, I feel like I've been running after something. I don't really know what though ^_^; I have no plans for this week-end and hopefully, it stays that way so I can catch up on my blog and a few other things :)

In the meantime, enjoy my buddy review with Ames over at Breezing Through. Today, we're discussing Off the Menu by Stacey Ballis :)

Off the Menu by Stacey Ballis
published by Berkley in July 2012
As the executive culinary assistant to celebrity Chicago chef Patrick Conlon, Alana Ostermann works behind the scenes—and that’s just the way she likes it. But with developing recipes for Patrick’s cookbooks, training his sous chefs, picking out the perfect birthday gifts for his ex-mother-in-law, and dealing with the fallout from his romantic escapades, she barely has a personal life, much less time to spend with her combo platter of a mutt, Dumpling.

Then a fluke online connection brings her RJ, a transplant from Tennessee, who adds some Southern spice to her life. Suddenly Alana’s priorities shift, and Patrick—and Dumpling—find themselves facing a rival for her time and affection. With RJ in the mix, and some serious decisions to make about her personal and professional future, Alana must discover the perfect balance of work and play, money and meaning, to bring it all to the table—one delicious dish at a time...
Genre: Chick-lit, Women's Fiction, contemporary
Series: None


  1. Aww don't feel so bad. I thought I would have tons of stuff done by now for my blog and I haven't been able to accomplish anything either! At least you have a review up at Breezing Through!

  2. Aww!!
    I know that feeling that you are chasing after something all week - probably next friday? lol - *hugs*
    Also, I'm going over to check out the review :D the book sounds cool

  3. Hilcia - Lucky that review at BT was ready for a couple of weeks and Ames wanted to keep it in reserve :) Ah well, hopefully, this week :) My other problem is I feel I should be working at work, but have almost nothing to do. So I feel guilty, sigh.

    Alex - LOL, probably :) I'm just glad this week is over and I can start "fresh."
