Entertaining but I wanted it to be another My Life in France and it was only Julia's editor!

Lovely cookbook, well presented. I often cook just for myself and usually resort to an omelet or leftovers. I got some nice ideas for other things I can do from this cookbook, which I borrowed from the library. I also enjoyed the author's tone, which is gentle, encouraging, and reassuring. I may buy myself a copy because I'd like to have the sauce and baking recipes, particularly.

I'd really give this a 3.7, but I'll round up...This is one of those books I read and think 'I meant to have that life!' But I was born too late (there are probably a few other reasons I didn't get that life...). A fun, overview kind of a read--nothing is explored too deeply, but much is touched on.
