I love to read, especially books about food! I joined the Kitchen Reader Book Club last Spring and have barely had a chance to participate. Apparently we have picked hard to find or popular books because my library has not had a few of these available for months after we post about them. Annoying but I understand. So I have sat a few (ok more than a few) months out but my local library actually had this months pick. How exciting!
February was A Homemade Life by Molly Wizenberg. She writes the blog Orangette, which somehow I have never read and considering my love of all things orange is somewhat shocking. A Homemade Life is stories and recipes from Molly’s life. I liked this book but didn’t love it. She had a great writing style and some very intriguing recipes.
Look how many recipes I flagged! I need to figure out how to best copy them from the library book…
I read this book in about 4 days and it was a really easy ready. I really liked the life stories mixed in with blogging and recipe development. I give Molly a ton of credit for being one of the first big food bloggers who is really a foodie and has amazing recipes. This would be a great vacation read. Would I recommend? Sure. Easy read and she has a great sense of humor. And how can you not like something with orange in the title.
The recipes I really must make:
Fresh Ginger Cake with Carmelized Pears (Scott loves ginger and I know he would go crazy for this)
French-Style Yogurt Cake with Lemon
