Although a lot of the recipes look interesting, I hadn't planned to buy the book - I thought I might just cook along with some of the recipes available online. Imagine my delight when my DH surprised me with an autographed copy for our anniversary! Looking forward to cooking with you this month!
I was kind of dissapounted that gran cocina Latina didn't win bc that's the book I have but now that BigSal posted the link with recipes for Smoke and Pickles I am excited I can join! I hope I get a chance to make a few things as I'm extremely pregnant and I have to will myself to heat up fish sticks for my toddler ! Haha
