The one thing perhaps worth noting is that the writer is American and the recipes therefore use American measures and vocabulary.
Also all of the reviews I've seen have raved about this book and the writer herself. Don't get me wrong the recipes are lovely and she writes beautifully, you can literally taste the food and also feel like you are experiencing moments in her life with her.
However it was all wrapped up a little too neatly for me and I even started to get annoyed with a recipe at the end of every chapter, as it didn't always need it and started to feel a little contrived.
Finally the remainder of the book after she met her Husband Brandon was just too schmaltzy for me, as every chapter was raving about how amazing he was, we get it he's wonderful and the love of your live, relax, no need to labour the point!
I guess when it comes down to it less is more sometimes, in both cooking and writing. So for my tastes it was a little too sweet.
Hopefully her next book will be a little more balanced, as like I said she is a very talented and you can't help but wish her well.
I couldn't wait to get this book, and when I did I read it in 2 days.....I laughed and I cried and then laughed again....and then I started baking, I made 3 of her cake recipes already, and some of them more than once......and they were success every time.
This book is delight just like her and her recipes :o)
