Cake walk

“Life does not always reward us with the best cookie in the box, or the happiest family. Sometimes you take what you get and make the best of it. In my case, that’s where imagination came in as handily as learning how to bake. For both of these lifesavers, I have my confusing, painful, unforgettable childhood to thank. Which makes me wonder if my cake obsession, really, is not much more than my struggle to find a way to redeem with sweetness those moments that left, however bitter on occasion, such a lasting taste in my mouth.” –Kate Moses

I've been so far back on my reading and hoping to do some catch up over the holiday season. It seems like I have hit a wall when it comes to reading and I hope that wall comes down soon.

The above is an excerpt from the book 'Cakewalk' by Kate Moses. Not particularly know compared to books like "The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo" or Harry Potter, I was particularly drawn to this book as it it's a clever combination of recipes and a story in a single book. However, as I've been hitting the 'wall' when it comes to book, I decided to download a sampler before purchasing.

I've not quite gone through the sampler yet but if anyone has read this book, do let me know what you think about it.
