pretty delicious = pretty freakin' fabulous

For a hi-level assessment, this cookbook is FANTASTIC!

Let me begin by saying I am an extremely picky eater. Therefore, when it comes to food, cooking and self-preparation are always my best bet. I am not a novice, nor an expert, but have to admit this is the first cookbook I have ever purchased. Let me tell you, it was worth every penny (for the elegance and style alone). I have had it one week and already used 2 recipes and have also tagged many more (ps, they were both delicious).

Having studied graphic design and based my career in the visual communicative arts, I was of course immediately intrigued by the amount of thought and detail put into the design of this book. My copywriter would say I'm not one for many words on the page, but when they are laid out so beautifully, all you want to do is read-on. From the typography choices, to the images, to the way the notes and tips are called-out, everything just seems perfect. This would even make a non-cooker want to tie on an apron and pearls (maybe a couple of sparkly bangles too).

The book is written in a fun and light tone, never condescending or vague--which is the problem I find with many of the recipe books I've skimmed through or taken notes from over the years. The promotion of health and happiness through good foods (or FWBs--food with benefits as she would say) really comes from the heart, and not from some newfangled fad dietician. It shows in her recipes and notes, the love that she put into this amazing compilation of delicious, healthy recipes.

I am beyond satisfied with my purchase of this beautiful cookbook. You will be too.
