And, yes, ok, basing a desire for a cookbook, or for anything really, off of its initial appearance is generally not the best idea. I apologize for my shallowness. But the more I learn and hear about Home Made, the more I want it and looove it! The author, Yvette Van Boven, is an illustrator, food stylist, and recipe writer from Amsterdam. The book is all about learning to make everything on your own from kitchen staples--it includes instructions on how to make things like an oven smoker, cheese, ice cream without an ice cream maker, and so on and so forth. Then it tells you how to utilize these basics for the recipes in the book(complete with what I can only imagine are totally adorable illustrations and possibly even, dare I imagine, cute fonts). I must check this out!
Also. This is a little bit hilarious.
