Last night I stayed up far to late devouring Molly’s ( book, A Homemade Life: Stories and Recipes from My Kitchen Table. If you haven’t already ordered your copy, what are you waiting for?

There are so many recipes that I can not wait to try. One in particular are the fruit-nut balls. Like Molly, I tend to stay away from things that seem even remotely reminiscent of Fruit Cake. But judging by her description and assurance that these little gems truly are delicious I am eager to give them a try. It also helps that they are covered in chocolate.

Molly writes of her life and food, which are so intertwined they can not be separated. As with many passionate food lovers, our lives are defined by the food we eat and the experiences involved while eating and creating delicious (and sometimes not so) food. Speaking with passion and a candidness that is so pure and raw, Molly’s words inspire and delight – which is the very reason why I could not put it down and am relying heavily on caffeine to get me through the day. Well worth it.

For all you Seattle-ites come check out Molly at the University Book Store on March 3 – The day the book is released. I will be there cheering Molly on and would love to meet some of you.
