Of cookbooks, and a kind soul
I have a total of 9 Williams-Sonoma cookbooks sitting on my shelves right now.
And I paid for none of them.
No, I certainly didn't steal them!
How then did I become the proud owner of that many cookbooks without forking out a cent?
It pays to have kind friends I guess.... friends who happen to work in a publishing company.
Haha.... he didn't only give me Williams-Sonoma cookbooks! He gave me this:
YEA! the book i've been eyeing for the longest time...
I mean, every chocoholic must own it. David Lebovitz rocks and I read his blog too. But now, I have this book and I await the day I can make a trip down to Paris and savour all the chocolatey places he has mentioned!
But wait, that's not it!
This dear friend also knows how much I love baking brownies and eating them. So he passed me this 'BROWNIES to die for!' recipe book. By the way, it's not out in stores yet (so I had to remove the picture... sorry!)
Brownies to die for indeed! There's like sooo many variations of brownies in there. It'll take me quite a while to try all the recipes though.
But you'll be the first to know, when I do!
Anyway, it's time to acknowledge this kind and sweet soul!
Mike is his name and he's been such a great friend; what with the moral support and all. He's been the one who's egging me on with my online bakery business! We've been bouncing off ideas and business plans for this dream of mine. He's a great friend I tell you. I'm sure you all would agree! I mean, who in the world would sneak out copies of cookbooks just for you? Mike! I know you're reading this... let me just say a BIG thank you once again! You're an amazing friend.... and a talented one at that. He customises sneakers ya know... So people, if you're thinking of having a special pair of your own sneakers, go look for him! I can vouch for his talent...
From my humble count of 12 cookbooks, I now have more than 25 sitting on my lil old shelf. Wow... thanks Mike once again! :)
