5.0 out of 5 stars A BOOK THAT TICKLES YOUR PALATE AND WARMS YOUR HEART, Jan. 5 2011

Reading IN THE KITCHEN WITH A GOOD APPETITE is a bit like being lucky enough to have two scoops of ice cream on a piece of homemade apple pie - the pleasure is doubled because Melissa Clark's stories are super fun to read and her recipes so delicious. This is a book not only to prop open in the kitchen and cook, but one to relax with and thoroughly enjoy Clark's reminiscences. Her writing style is easy and unaffected - a bit like chatting with a good friend.

In addition, to her sharing of memories Clark lets us in on some of her secrets when it comes to inventing a meal in jig time. Now, if I were not to have an ingredient listed in a recipe, I'd pull off the apron and dash to the grocery store. Not Clark - she substitutes with the finished product often being tastier than the original recipe. . Haven't you read some recipes that sound delicious, but the ingredients and directions frighten you off? Not at all so here - Clark's recipes are within reach of everyone.

Born to parents whose dream was 'to eat at every Michelin-starred restaurant in France,' Clark comes to her appreciation and love of food quite naturally, and she shares that enthusiasm for what we eat via 150 recipes and stories.

IN THE KITCHEN WITH A GOOD APPETITE holds recipes for foods we love, whether pancakes or chicken, corn or spaghetti, sandwiches or toffee. It's a book that not only tickles your palate but warms your heart as well.

Highly recommended.
