A Homemade Life by Molly Wizenberg

|


When I started A Homemade Life, I was a little disappointed. It is laid out as a short (around 3 pages) essay/story with a recipe or two to follow. Rinse and repeat. The first few were okay, but I had been hoping for something more like another book of hers I read, Delancy.

However, a few stories in I changed my mind. Molly has such a charming way of writing that it makes me want to be a better writer and I just can't help but get pulled into her stories. So I was convinced and converted to liking this new-to-me book when I came upon the FRENCH STORIES. Much to my surprise, she has a French degree (one of her many) and has spent several chunks of time in Paris. Her stories of her time there are absolutely magical and I can't wait to try the recipes she shares to go along with them.

A truly great memoir on her childhood, schooling, family, and falling in love.
