Day 3: A Favourite Book

I am a total bookworm. Fact.
And because of that, choosing a favourite book is kind of a tough one.
I have so many favourite fiction books that I really, truely can't just pick one. 
So, I'm not going to pick any.
Instead, I'm going to go for a recipe book, that way it ties together my love of reading and my love of food. Honestly, if I am bored at home, I will read a recipe book from cover to cover, I love getting ideas for future meals, or organising imaginairy dinner parties in my head (they would be amazing...).
And now, you lucky, lucky people have the privilege of knowing my number one, go-to cook book for all occasions....

This woman is wonderful. Her recipes are easy to follow but still adventurous, her attitude is laid back and fun, and her food is so delicious! I always pick up this book, whether it's for a mid week easy dinner, for a fancy schmanzy romantic Saturday night in, or to impress your in-laws (or anyone for that matter!).
Her other recipe books equally exude her laid back New Zealand style, and titles like Savour the Pacific and The Free Range Cook, make me want to dive right in.
I really recommend trying one of her recipes, (her website has a few to choose from) and I have to say, her recipe for Thai Pumpkin Soup is the most perfect winter warmer.

From me, with love. x

  1. Thanks for this post, I have been looking for a great recipe book for ages!

  2. You arise beauteous in the horizon of the heavens
    Oh living Aten who creates life.
    When you shine forth in the Eastern horizon you fill every land with your beauty.
    You are so beautiful: you are great; gleaming and high over every land.
    Your rays embrace the lands and all you have created;
    You are Re and reach out to all your creations, and hold them for your beloved Son.
    You are afar, but your rays touch the earth;
    Men see you, but know not your ways.

    ...thanks...sweet sugar!
