This was a really fun book for me, but I didn't even know it would be when I bought it. I purchased this book as part of Borders fire sale and it looked like a fun cooking memoir, but at the time I didn't take note of the author's name. However, shortly after I began reading it, I realized it was by Gesine Bullock, Sandra Bullock's sister and the same woman who opened a bakery near the apartment where my mom lives in Montpelier. I have been in that bakery. As a result I found pleasure in this book beyond the normal reader, because I was reading about a place I grew up.

While the story can be a bit disjointed at times, there are some spots where some truly beautiful writing shines. This book will definitely make you hungry!
