I love memoirs, and memoirs with yummy baking recipes - all the better. This is also reflective and interesting. And the story is intriguing - an unhappy Hollywood executive who found happiness as a lowly pastry chef. It is a bit edgy in places (mostly language), but it's so honest at the same time. And how could I not love this lovely piece:

"I had always been under the general impression that a child both home schooled and religious is dangerous, at the very least, and certainly humorless and easily offended - until I met Kalika and Meeka, the Sand Sisters...

Ray and I decided that home schooling and religious dedication might actually be the only way to raise a child. These two had come out so well."

Sadly, I don't feel I can hand this book directly to my younger girls (ages 9 and 11) to try out the recipes (they LOVE baking) because of the language and edginess.
