Stop drooling, these are mine!  😛

Yes, I am recommending this book, “A Homemade Life:  stories and recipes from my kitchen table” by Molly Wizenberg.

She writes about food in such an evocative way that it involves all your senses.

On the Pink Cookies:  “A rich shortbread spread thickly with rosy, cherry-scented frosting…”

On eating one of her moms Christmas cookies that she did not think she’d like:  “The crisp chocolate cap buckled under my teeth, giving way to a rush of powdered sugar and, beneath it, a soft, dark, winey chew.  The dried fruits and their accompanying walnuts, finely chopped and held together by a splash of liqueur, had morphed together into a third something, a flavor both floral and musky, familiar and complex, the sort of thing only an adult would like.”

Just from reading her descriptions, without even knowing what it is, you want some.  You want to rush out to the kitchen, check your cupboards for ingredients and make something, immediately.  As in, right now.
