  1. love your review! I also watch her on youtube and always try to copy her recipes. 🙂

  2. Just randomly stumbled across your blog as I was looking for some quotes from Calvino’s Invisible Cities.

    Ha, a vegan review of an omni cookbook. I’m glad I’m not the only vegan that reads omni cookbooks quite happily – I’ve got several in my collection – Beaneaters & Bread Soup (Tuscan cooking) is one favourite, Japanese Farm Food is another.

    Love the fact that you are writing by hand! 😊

    • Seems like many people end up here thanks to an Invisible Cities quote search 😉 glad it brought you here too!!

      Thanks for those two cookbook ideas! I’ll have to check them out :)))

      Happy to hear you like the blog style too ❤ stay tuned for more 🙂
