A Book Review and Recipe (Sort Of)

It is hard to believe that we are into November with Thanksgiving and Christmas just a hop, skip, and a jump away.  I have had so many wonderful things happen in the past 4 weeks I don't know where to begin.  But, for this post I am going to be short and sweet.  It is a book review and a recipe (well, sort of).

I have just finished reading this wonder full book about a freelance food writer and blogger.  Her qualifications are many and she is a wonderful writer.  (Oh, and she is also a new Mom.)  This wonderful person is 'Molly Wizenberg'.  Her book is "A Homemade Life".  If is a culmination of stories and recipes from her life.  



Because I want you to go out and get this book and I don't want to spoil any of the reading I am not going to write any excerpts.  But, I will tell you that her love life before she was married was extremely comical.  There are two chapters that really stand-out for me - one was called 'The Hardball Stage'.  At the end of the chapter there was a recipe for 'Fresh Ginger Cake with Caramelized Pears'.  Her words had my mouth watering for this cake.  Well, I just had to make it.  It was so delicious - and you must eat it with the sauce warm.  (I am going to follow with photos of this cake, but not the recipe (I really want you to go out and get this book.)
My other favorite chapter was 'High Points'. It had me laughing till I cried.  

So, that is my blog for today.  Go out and get this book and try all the wonderful recipes.  Oh, and if you want to read more of Molly; her blog is orangette.blogspot.com.  I promise you won't be disappointed.
