The recipes are creative and clever, though they do seem a little complex- perhaps needlessly so. I have not yet made anything from the book, so I can’t be sure. The photography is lovely. The breezy tone makes it sound like the blog it came from. I’m not sure I approve of the breezy tone here- I don’t know if it’s creeping geezerhood or if it just strikes me as off because I’m not one of her blog followers. I’m willing to ascribe it to my own curmudgeonliness.
