I've finished A Homemade Life by Molly Wizenburg (Orangette) and it was one of the few books that...
A.) I was mad when I finished it. I wanted it to last just a little longer. I even read slower but it didn't help. --sigh--
B.) I have picked up and re-read right away.
What I really liked was how it read like a blog. I'm sure some wouldn't take that as a compliment but it read like a well written supersized blog post with a recipe at the end of each chapter. Personally, I would love to see more cookbooks written this way.
So here's what I want to know...
Am I the only one who feels this way about Molly's book?
What do you look for in a cookbook? Do you look at or for---the writing, easy recipes, complicated recipes, book size, photos, cookbooks that inspire, price?
What would you like to see in a cookbook?
Do you like one subject cookbooks or do you like it with a little more variety?
Do you have cookbook pet peeves?
What's your favorite cookbook?
So in return for answering any or all of these questions. I'm giving away a $25 dollar gift card or (e-certificate) to one of the following places of your choice.
I wish I could afford to give you $25 to each place but I think Rich would kill me and then who would entertain you day after day? Not like I do that anyways but you get my point.
You can enter as many times as you wish but you have to at least answer one of the questions.
You have until April 3rd at 12:00 pm to answer. I will pick someone or I should say the random generator will pick someone that afternoon.
Good Luck and remember inquiring minds want to know.
