Book Report: A Homemade Life

September 11th, 2009

I read about A Homemade Life: Stories and Recipes from My Kitchen Table on another blog. I can’t remember which one, sorry. At first this book didn’t seem all that interesting to me and I almost didn’t read it, but I’m so glad I did.
It’s a wonderfully entertaining book, part cookbook, part biography. Each short chapter is comprised of a brief story about a specific dish some are quite funny others sentimental and sad.
It’s quite fascinating to read the history of the recipes and how each recipe became a part of Molly’s life. The recipes are also fantastic, I tried several of them and I’d highly recommend the pancakes! It’s the perfect book to keep on your nightstand so you can read a chapter or two each evening, although you many end up dreaming of delicious food all night long.

Have you read any good books lately that you’d recommend?

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!
