Book Report: A Homemade Life

I am actually quite sorry to say that I have just now gotten around to reading this book, because I knew all along that I would love it. I've been reading Molly Wizenberg's blog, Orangette, for quite awhile now (that includes hours of mining through archives) and was certain the book would be equally as charming as her blog. It didn't disappoint.

Molly has a way of writing that makes you feel like you know her, and when she shares a recipe its as if an old friend has passed along a secret. She met her husband through the blog, and you can go back and read the chronicles that lead up to their wedding (and we all know how much I love a good wedding story). Her banana bread with chocolate will make you a lifetime convert, so I can hardly explain my need to try her Winning Hearts and Minds Cake. I haven't yet had a good excuse to make it, and if I don't have a reason to share it that just means I will quite certainly eat the entire thing myself, which won't end well for anyone involved.

So this is a long winded way of saying, I love the book so much I am tempted to sleep with it under my pillow. And I'll be sure to let you know how that cake thing turns out. {Image above is from Kristina, because she's amazing like that and took a better picture of the book than the publisher}
