The only name I've mentioned in this blog more than Moaning Myrtle, my KitchenAid, is Alice, of Savory Sweet Life. I haven't done much in the way of kitcheny things, but Alice made it seem so possible for me to make my first batch of buttercream icing! I love how Alice blogs recipes and techniques to make baking something that even I can do. And I'm so excited that Alice's book is coming out in June!
I have been excited about books before. I have met the postman on my porch and scurried off to read the new Harry Potter book. I have gone to Cincinnati to have a book signed my Laurell K Hamilton before her Anita Blake series jumped the shark a few installments ago. I have release dates in my calendar for favorite authors' new books on a fairly regular basis, and I snap them up on my Kindle and devour them.
But NEVER have I been worked up over a cookbook.
So I'm sharing the momentousness of that on my blog! Alice has a cookbook coming out, and I want it!! And I'll even go to her book signing, if there's one in driving distance and if I'm able to get someone to drive me. I'll likely be in a sling and not allowed to drive by the time Alice takes her tour to the Midwest.
I'm excited! Over a COOKBOOK! Go figure. :-)
I'm a fangirl.
