A new book for the new year! Marie and Jon got me Nigella's book "How To Eat; The Pleasures and Principals of Good Food" for Christmas and I am in love! Its not juts a recipe book, she talks about the atmosphere of cooking, the flavors and textures. Its an all over foundation of good food. From keeping your larter/pantry stocked and what to keep it stocked with, to feeding babies and small children. Its funny how people so easily label her as "The Fattening Cook", but everything she cooks is real and wholesome. Its not full of preservatives and chemicals. Yeah, if you eat her heavy whipping puddings with croissants for breakfast on a regular basis then it would be a little fattening! There is always an extreme to everything. And when it comes to eating healthy, I would like to stay on the real food side! :P She wants everything real and fresh. I particularly love the chapter on feeding babies and small children. I can't wait to implement her ideas when our Itty Bitty gets to that age. Its a very inspiring book and I am enjoying it so much. Its funny because Jon got it for Marie as a Christmas present as well, because she was so enchanted with mine. She said she was reading it all the way up until Christmas and then she had to eventually wrap it and put it under the tree for me he he :) But to her delight Jon surprised her with one! :)
The New Year has begun with a grand start for me. I have poured over several books and can't put them down! Luckily its still the weekend and a day and half before monday comes :P I hope everyone is enjoying the last few days of celebrations! Much love to all!
