Bread & Wine Book Review
She toddles up to me, eyes focused on my plate. She mashes it into her tiny, drooly mouth. Sometimes the youngest among us understand best how to be nourished. And she knows how to feed her people well. Niequist saw her cooking forays as exotic, intense, and satisfying. She tried new-to-her combinations—savory bacon-wrapped dates, simple-yet-impressive mango chicken curry, and rich dark chocolate sea salted toffee—which she shares here. The collected recipes remind her of her travels to Spain, Paris, and Italy alongside memories of home in western Michigan, San Francisco, and Chicago.

Years later, during a time of transition, Bittersweet spoke to my life in a completely different way. I love this. As you may imagine, there are certain fitness types that I have trouble connecting with. Like…most of them. I did Pilates videos; I ate loads of quinoa and white beans and loads of fresh produce; and I emailed Robin whenever I felt like what I really wanted was a wheelbarrow full of nachos, or when the last thing I wanted to do was a Pilates video in a hotel room at midnight.
