What a fun read!

Fun read for moms, I should say... This is not a cardboard book for kids that I want to write about. And yes, I do remember that this blog is not about book recommendations, but once in while I come across  such a great book (sometimes for kids, sometimes not) that I just can't help but sharing. 

Today just happens to be such an occasion that I finished a book I absolutely loved! It was such a great break from how to potty train, how to say no to your toddler and how to handle tantrums series of books and such a fun read! (A post on Potty Training is coming soon though). The book is called "Heartburn" and written by Nora Ephron. That's the first book that I read by this author, but  am hooked! After I am done with this post, I am going to my library's website and ordering another book by her.



This book combines my 3 favorites things in books:
-engaging from page #1
-funny
-recipes!

The plot of the book is ironically a sad story of a woman's marriage breaking, but she writes it in such a way that you actually end up laughing most of the time. Because the heroine of the book is a cookbook writer, she drops a bunch of nice little recipes here and there that are described in 2-3 sentences and only include a few ingredients, so you immediately want to cook them right away. I ended up cooking her bread pudding the day after I read the part of the book with the recipe. Yes it has 2 sticks of butter in there and 2 cups of sugar, but it's soooo worth it (we only live once, right?)

So if you're looking for a next great book to read and want something light, easy and funny with an added benefit of inspirational recipes, this one is the way to go.I am putting it on my list of "Books to reread". Hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did.
