Buy the book! And then take photos of the recipes and send them to me and we'll simultaneously attempt them on other sides of the Pacific :-)
That sounds like a much cooler version of Julie and Julia. Except we're both alive and not boring. xxx
I need that book in my life RIGHT NOW (or the food in my belly - I'll really take either)
Do it (but first, you must choose what colour Kitchen Aid? Chrome? Cherry Red? Apple Green? A #firstworldproblem for the nexus of food and design if ever there was one). And once you've decided, please tell me. I've been paralysed by indecision for three years.
I already bought a white one as we sold our cherry red one in Oz before coming over. And the white here is only $250. Ah America. Now to the book...
WHITE. I like. Still dithering on whether to buy one in the UK and ship it home with us.
