Just finished reading this last night...
My first thought was that this book might be a tad overrated...if I wanted to read blog entries I'd just read her blog...but then I tried a couple of her recipes (banana bread with chocolate & candied ginger and burg's french toast) and I'll admitt it, I was hooked. I also love how this book is such a lovely tribute to her father and how she obviously is smitten with her husband.
I can't wait to try their restaurant next week! Oh, and I'm also looking forward to baking her famous chocolate cake...perhaps I'll skip the cupcakes for Wes' birthday (she did say it froze easily)!
I'd definitely recommend this book, a little for her stories, but especially for the food.
