Some of the recipes look *amazing* and I seriously hope I get my act together enough to try them. Molly is very down-to-earth and straightforward about her cooking, and I really like the style of the book. Recipes follow little vignettes about her life in which the food or recipe plays a role, so the chocolate cake recipe follows the story of how she baked it for the man who became her husband, and ended up making 20 or so of them to be their wedding cakes. (A very sweet story, though I must say: bless her heart, but I am *so* glad I am not making my own wedding cake!) ( )

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. ( )
