Bread & Wine...

I know... I know.... I am MIA a lot lately.  Life is just that way right now but I had to come here and share a real treasure with you.  

I recently got this book in the mail to read.  It was an advanced reader copy that I requested because the topic was right up my ally.  I am not getting paid to tell you how wonderful this book is.... and it is truly wonderful!  I would never say it if it were not true.  It is about my most favorite things and it really touched me in a very personal way as I read it.  It is about food and family and friends and God...

It was written by Shauna Niequist 

(she has written several other books to date:  Cold Tangerines and Bittersweet)

It is about gathering around the kitchen and family table together.  It has everything I look for in a book.  It has stories about family and friends.  It has recipes to share.  It has gluten free and healthy food.  It has the occasional splurge with comfort foods and rich indulgences.  It has recipes that use real food... whole food... butter and wine even!  They are not complicated but they are beautiful and delicious.  I have made several of her recipes as I have been reading the book.  It is a deliciously delightful read about life and how bringing people to the table enhances that in a way that nothing else can.  

I think this says a lot to give you some idea of the beauty of this book...

You can read more about her journey in writing the book here...

Bread & Wine Backstory 

It is available right now... at just about any place that sells books

I will share some of the things I have made from the book over the coming week with you as I have an opportunity. 

I truly have enjoyed reading this book!

  1. Thanks for the reminder. Last time I checked it was still a few days till the release on kindle (over here at least) and then with everything else that has happened I forgot all about it.
