Confession: at night, when the rest of you flip through magazines or novels on your night stand, I read cookbooks. There is something so hypnotic about letting my eyes wander through lists of ingredients before I doze off for the night.
As I turn a cookbook's pages, I get intoxicated by the perfectly delicious color photographs. I imagine dinner parties I might host or recipes I might try. And, as I shut my eyes for the evening, I dream of fluffy meringues or caramely apple tarts or cozy chicken pot pies...and, of course, I wake up ravenous.
This all leads me to my recent great cookbook discovery. Months ago, I started seeing Miss Dahl's Voluptuous Delights appear everywhere in blogland. I must admit, what immediately attracted me to the book was the pink and turquoise color palette on the cover. Just recently, after drooling over the book on Amazon, I treated myself to my very own copy.
