Aly's Newsletter: Late Friday Edition
I'm so sorry for the lateness of this email, especially with some people heading offline for the holiday weekend. I had a few last minute rush stories to work on this afternoon (such is the nature of breaking news!), and by the time I came up for air...the sun was going down.
Will be quick with this so I can go feed my puppies and engage in some much-needed self-care after a long week.
(Oh, and I need to get my papers together for taxes this weekend…so that’ll be fun.)
What I'm working on this weekend:
1 - For SPY.com, I'm rounding up:
1 - Mattress deals for Presidents Day
2 - Cookbooks - I'm doing a pretty comprehensive guide and I'll include categories such as: Best Cookbooks 2022 (BRAND new cookbooks, obvi), Best cookbooks of all time, Best Vegan Cookbooks, best vegetarian cookbooks, best mediterranean cookbook, best baking cookbooks, best cookbooks for beginners, best instant pot cookbook, best healthy cookbooks, best Italian cookbook, best keto cookbook, best Indian cookbook, best diabetic cookbook, best gluten free cookbook
With Passover coming, I'll also be doing a Jewish-specific cookbook roundup. It doesn't have to be Passover specific recipes in this case, this is not a Passover story (and a reminder, Kosher and Kosher for Passover are very different things) - but I'm open to all kinds of Kosher cookbooks, both older ones and newer ones.
Have any to pitch me? Please email me at email@example.com with name of book and amazon link where sold, along with a brief description.
