I’ve read one or two chef memoirs but this is definitely the most crazy “out there” life of a chef that I’ve ever read! Norman Van Aken takes you on a ride of his life starting when he gets out of school and spans the first twenty something years of his life in the restaurant business.

Let’s pretend that I’m not posting cookies with black and orange chocolate chips in December. Yet again time has got away with me and I have a huge backlog of posts. I never seem to be ahead of schedule. Thank you Pinterest for making me feel bad. I don’t have any amazing 12 Days of Christmas planned. I managed to make it into work without slipping in the ice and falling on my bum. Now that’s a win!

For this month’s book club I have chosen Christmas at Carrington’s. A few month’s ago Cupcakes’s at Carrington’s was a big hit with the book club. I hope the Christmas themed sequel is just as inspiring! Since it’s holiday time there will be a little more than a month to read and make a creation.
Who loves waking up to warm fresh pastries each morning? I do! Who likes to get out of bed early on a cold winter morning to make said pastries? Not me. My sister came down to visit and I wanted to make something fun for us all to have for breakfast on Sunday morning. Kayla used to live in London with me but I started the blog after she moved back to the US so she hasn’t really had many chances to taste my baking.

Sometimes when I’m reading a book for review I end up concentrating too hard and not sitting back and enjoying the actual book enough. For this month’s book club I didn’t “think” too much while reading and didn’t bookmark any special passages. Same as My Life in France I’m not going to critique an already best selling book.
