This review is from: Dirty Sugar Cookies: Culinary Observations, Questionable Taste (Paperback)
Whilst I really enjoyed reading 'Dirty Sugar Cookies', it's worth noting that many of the refernces to Halliday's experience of food are specifically relevant for Americans. For example, she talks about Betty Crocker and her books, Jello, succotash etc.

However, if you can get past that, this is a really good read, and many of the sentiments and feelings she describes could apply wherever you're from. I particularly enjoyed the chapter about the amazing birthday cake from a childhood cookbook that she never had herself, and which inspired massive envy when her friend did get it!!

Don't expect anything too gourmet either ('everything tastes better when mixed with mayonnaise'!)This is a book you read really because of the personality of the writer.

A nice easy read (with recipes), parts of which will have you in hysterics.
