When we think about the biggest milestones and roadblocks in our lives, we also remember the food we cooked and/or ate while getting through them. Because we’re human. And pretty much always hungry. This book will be the literary equivalent of a heart-to heart over a warm slice of coffee cake. A bunch of kick-ass women writers, illustrators, and photographers share their deepest struggles, their silliest moments, their deepest revelations, and, of course, their favorite recipes.

This book is wonderful. You will gobble it up the minute you receive it. I especially liked the story, Toddlers and Tortillas. This would make a great gift. Gifted writers that I hope to see more of.
