My co-worker purchased this book because we both love the Cedar Cove books. I started using post-its to tab the recipes I wanted to copy, and before I was half way though it, I had so many pages tabbed that I decided I had to have it too. The pictures are lovely, and the notes and stories that accompany the recipes and chapters are really great - especially if you love the books that inspired this. Even if you haven't picked up one of the other books, the recipes in this collection look great! The pages almost have a scrapbook feeling. The first recipe I tried was from page 85: Parmesan Cheese Twists with Fresh Herb Dip. The recipe was easy and impressive! I took a double batch to a party, and not a scrap was left over. I highly recommend this book for those who love a pretty cookbook with practical recipes. The only thing that could have made it better would be if it had been spiral bound - in my opinion it's hard to use a cookbook that doesn't open flat.
