Life From Scratch

I learned the lesson a long time ago that food was love.  If I could draw for you a big, loopy heart and type the word food smack dab in the middle of it, you’d get how I feel.

Food = Love

Food is a friend.  Food makes the good times great, and the bad times suck just a little less.  Pretty sure this feeling is hereditary and passed down from family to family, with the exception of those crazy families who consider food fuel for the body.  A method to keep your metabolism cranking and calories burning.

That’s adorable.

Or maddening… you choose.Unknown

When a book has the ability to capture food, love, and friendship in such a way, and oh, make the main character grow and change that is both cringe-worthy and admirable at the same time?  Well, that’s just magic.

I introduce to you Life from Scratch, by Melissa Ford.

I am pretty sure I heard about this from Modern Mrs. Darcy for a Kindle Deal… last year, and quickly downloaded it.  I never got around to reading it before this past weekend, and once I started, I couldn’t put it down.

I l-o-v-e any book with a major transformation in the main character.  It just always gives me hope for what could be if I took chances more.  Plus, throw in some food, blogging, and a sexy Spaniard and I was hooked.

If you have a chance to add this to your summer reading list, please do so.  If you’re in the mood for a funny, quirky, love story that will make you want to cook a fried egg, then this is for you.

Up next:  In Twenty Years, by Allison Winn Scotch

Happy Reading!
