Excellent recipes, a cute and heartwarming tale to boot. ( )

Enjoyed the stories, enjoyed reading the recipes, I may even try a few of them. ( )

This book will live quite contently among your cookbooks, though it is a memoir. The writing is fresh and intimate, the story quite lovingly told without being "cheesy" (a Molly Wizenberg word, for sure), with exquisite recipes begging to be tried out and eaten. Couldn't put it down. Better still, we don't really ever have to. Visit her blog Orangette and eat to your heart's content. ( )

Well I must admit to being delightfully surprised by this book. I thought I was getting myself into another blog turned to paper. I bought this book figuring I would sell it right away and make some of my money back but instead I feel like I made a friend and an expanded recipe collection. Molly Wizenberg is sweet and her writing delightful. I think I want to make all but one recipe - and this is just because I don't eat fish.

I loved how the book so greatly illustrates that there is more to cooking then food....family and love play such a huge part. Moments of our lives can be tied to and wrapped around dishes.

I would recommend this book to those who are beginning their own family traditions around meals...and those who love cooking and good food!

I will not be selling this book any time soon...too many new recipes to try out. ( )
