I feel in love with this book while doing research on cooking pantry items from scratch.  It’s a monster of a cookbook, heavy and saturated with color and images.  In between the art design and the cool graphics, is the story of a life well spent.

Recipes are told as if the author, Yvette Van Boven,  was a dear friend.  Nothing is complicated. Everything looks delicious and accessible but oh, so very stylish.  I enjoy the way the author says “Let’s get started.” when laying out step by step instructions. Yes, let’s!

This is quickly becoming my new favorite and I can see myself cooking from its pages well into summer and then on to autumn.

A giveaway seems appropriate because I have to share this wonderful book.

Tell me about your favorite homemade pantry item.  Or, tell me what you wish you could make from scratch.

Giveaway ends Sunday at 9:00PM (Pacific)  Winner announced Monday.
