what I'm reading: a homemade life

Contrary to popular belief, I do occasionally read for pleasure.  I came across A Homemade Life: Stories and Recipes from my Kitchen Table while browsing Amazon, and knew it would make the perfect airplane read.  Written by Molly Wizenberg, author of the blog Orangette, A Homemade life is part memoir, part recipe book.

Its a really lovely and enjoyable read, and it didn't even make it to the flight home.  (I couldn't resist reading it while laying by the pool at my hotel.)  The most frustrating part about reading the book while traveling is that you want to run into the kitchen and try the recipes.  Looks like I've got a lot of cooking and baking to do when I get home!

This was such a beautiful book! I flew through the pages, too.

I love Orangette! I haven't seen the book in person yet but she is such a great writer and cook.

I bet you could even read it like a novel.
