talented women

I love talented women. I love to see other women who excel in hobbies and skills. I am rarely jealous (because those of you who know me are aware that I don't have a competitive bone in my body). I love to see friends knitting works of art, decorating beautiful homes, writing eloquent poetry. I love to hear women who can sit down and play ANYTHING on the piano or sing a perfectly-pitched song.
I have none of those talents. I just appreciate seeing it in others.
This is one of the most talented people I know of. I say "know of" because I don't know her personally. I have just followed her blog for a few years now. She is an amazing photographer and writes the most hillarious posts. She is also a a FABULOUS cook. I have tried several of her recipes and they have all been divine! (Not so healthy or low in fat, mind you, but really yummy.)
She finally got talked into doing a cookbook. It is out now. Here it is.




She is also coming to Big D for a book tour on Dec. 1st at 7pm to Borders. I hope to make it. If you are looking for a great gift idea for someone who has everything - this migh tbe just the thing you are looking for.

David got me her cookbook for my birthday! I think she's fabulous, and her sense of humor always makes me smile. I've heard her signings have been packed and you have to get there real early. Good Luck!

Well Shahna, you have a talent that I really admire. You are so friendly to everyone you meet. You are able to make people feel important and included. And I think that is an AMAZING talent to have. Just my two cents :) Oh, and I'm so exciting PW has a cookbook out!!!! She is amazing!
