My new obsession!

So Logan and I went to Seagull Book the other night to scope out a few early Christmas presents for the family, and I came across this little piece of heaven...
I flipped through it for a little while and couldn't leave the store without it! If you don't have one I must tell you that your kitchen is not complete without it.. All of the recipes are easy and look delicious! I have tried quite a few of them and every recipe has been absolutely wonderful. There were even a few recipes from Brazil/Africa that Logan recognized from his mission. The cookbook is fun to just sit and read because it tells where all the recipes come from and a little story about them. Buy it, try it, and I promise you will love it! I told a friend about it and she said "I have to get one! I have always wanted to learn how to cook like a mormon! They always make the best food!" If you already have this book let me know what your favorite recipes are so I can try them!
