I did not take this book with me on my vacation because I was half way through it and I didn't want to give it space instead of a book I hadn't started. However, as soon as we unpacked today, I headed back to see what Molly was cooking up in the next chapter.

This is the eighth non-fiction book I have read this year about food and I have another one started. I like learning about why people like to eat what they eat. I also enjoy knowing the stories that go with people's recipes and food interests. Somewhere in this book (which I now can't find) Wizenberg talks how on her blog she need to include life stories as well as recipes. That is what I am looking for when I pick up these books.

Wizenberg gave me all I could want and more. Her personal stories are wonderful - she goes from her childhood through her marriage. Also there are several recipes that I will have to try. Her writing creates images that will stick with me for some time.

If you like reading food essays, make sure you pick this up.
