I went to the book signing for Deb Perelman’s cookbook, The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook, last night at Powell’s. The event was great (they sold out of books and filled the room to capacity!) and Deb a total blast to hear speak. And her cookbook is every bit as awesome as her blog, which is important to someone who reads cookbooks like they are normal books and appreciates a good page into to every recipe.

The rules for Teaser Tuesday, hosted by Miz B of Should Be Reading, are simple:

  1. Grab your current read
  2. Open to a random page
  3. Share two “teaser” sentences from that page (without spoiling the book!)
  4. Include the title and author so others can find the book if they enjoyed your teaser

This weeks teaser:

“On the flip side, what I secretly hope when I read a cake recipe that asks me to use three different bowls is: Did this recipe’s creator compare the results of this cake with one bowl, two bowls, and three bowls and find that the three-bowl method was clearly the winning cake? Or did they just ask me to use three bowls before that’s the way it’s always been done?”
