Fantastic book not only for the serious cooks, but for people who just enjoy reading an interesting book. I love everything about it....the size, layout, photos and above all the recipes. I bought 15 copies and gave them as holiday gifts and hostess gifts. ALL the recipients were very pleased, and some of them ordered copies themselves to give as gifts. I hope the author is thinking about her next book!
Wow! I go to The Meatloaf Bakery in Chicago all the time and now they've put everything into a great cookbook. I bought a bunch of these to give as Christmas gifts because I keep talking about how great their food is. The ideas are clever, but most important, the recipes are easy to follow and everything tastes like what you get in the store. I made the chicken version, Wing and a Prayer Loaf, and it was great. All the flavors really come together with the Omega 3 recipe too -- those wasabi mashed potatoes really make it. I'm making the loafies next for a holiday party coming up.
