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.
