Jillson Roberts Flat Gift Wrap, Birthday Candles, 12-Sheet Count (F379)
Jillson Roberts Flat Gift Wrap, Birthday Candles, 12-Sheet Count (F379)
Price: $16.93

5.0 out of 5 stars Love the Jillson Roberts company, February 3, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Jillson Roberts makes gorgeous designs which also happen to be mostly or completely made from recycled sources. I love having the option to still "dress up" gifts with pretty paper while knowing that I'm using a product that is kinder to our environment. Wish more companies did what Jillson Roberts does so beautifully!

Love this paper! It's elegant and heavy enough that there isn't any "show through" when you are wrapping. Highly recommended!

2.0 out of 5 stars Really wanted to like this book, but . . . ., February 3, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Slice of Moon (Paperback)
Read a rave review in "Oprah Magazine." The poems are actually pretty well-written but the book itself was so poorly-edited (a number of spacing and punctuation errors) that I found it incredibly distracting. I found myself proofreading as I read instead of simply enjoying the book! The author was poorly-served by her editors, and believe me, it makes a poor impression on the reader.

I adore this giftwrap and like the fact that all sorts of ribbon colors go with it since it's multicolored. It wraps well and completely (no show-through) and makes a cheery-looking gift. Thank you!

Jillson Roberts does GORGEOUS wrapping paper, and it's mostly, if not completely, made from recycled goods! I am so excited to find BEAUTIFUL pattern giftwrap that's also a little easier on the environment. Love this paper and this company.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just love this paper!, February 3, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I live in the middle of the eastern Ohio woods, so this bird-and-tree pattern was a perfect wrapping paper choice. Just beautiful, and sort of unusual so my gifties didn't look like anyone else's. Recommended highly!

I am a sucker for the red-and-green Christmas colors and since I'm also a confectioner by trade, this candy wrapping paper was a natural choice. Highly recommended!

I wear these as pajama bottoms, and they are COZY, warm, and comfortable. They were priced well, carefully packaged, and quickly sent. Very happy with the purchase!

5.0 out of 5 stars Consistently excellent results with easy-to-understand explanations, October 16, 2012
I'm a longtime COOK'S ILLUSTRATED subscriber, and if you are too--or if you're curious why some of us are such CI nutjobs--this book will sate your curiosity and provide you with lasting help in the kitchen to boot.

CI is famed for obsessively testing and re-testing virtually every aspect of their recipes. They don't take on fussy foods; they take regular stuff and tell you how to make it as well as possible. This necessarily means that some culinary tropes and old wive's tales get upended, but the effect is exhilarating rather than upsetting. "The Science of Good Cooking" is, essentially, an enormous keyring with dozens of keys allowing YOU, regular old home cook you, to perform to the highest standard you can in the kitchen.

One thing I love about the book and about the CI philosophy in general is that it's DEPENDABLE. You know that the authors and their staff have tested and tested and tested each recipe six ways to Sunday, and you sow the harvest of their hard work. The whys and wherefores are fascinating--food chemistry is the only branch of science that even remotely interests me--but the real fun comes when you set your work down on the table and witness it being enjoyed and dispatched by appreciative eaters.
