When asked for my number1 Holiday, I’ll immediately crown Christmas. – However, if I get a few seconds to reconsider, Easter is a rea-aaaálly close second.

I am hoping that this ‘post on finding the perfect cookbook will save you some stress and  money. I’ve always struggled with impulse decisions and so when I started searching for my very first cookbook I almost bought one that wasn’t exactly my-cup-of-tea, just because I was lazy and in a hurry to fill the corner in my kitchen. Lesson learned (!), and I can honestly say that every second of researching was worth it, because  I recently found the PER-FECT cookbook for me!
