  1. This book is truly awesome. It is literally packed a lot of delicious recipes that I have not come across. I am sure I can try a lot of new things with it. :)


    1. Enjoy it, Julie! Ever since I got it, I have been pulling it out just to stare at the beautiful food photography. Sometimes even when I don’t have any plans to cook!
