I know this woman. Her name is Rebecca and she is kind, funny, and generous. Like invite-you-to-her-house-the-first-time-she-meets-you generous.
Then there's me. I'm a pretty open person. Like take-you-up-on-your-invitation-to-spend-the-weekend-at-your-house-the-first-time-I-meet-you kind of open. What can I say: I'm always up for getting to know new, kind, funny, generous people.
I loved Rebecca the first minute I met her and my family and I really did spend a weekend at her house. It was the second time that we met. We had the best time and I learned that, among all of the other wonderful qualities Rebecca possesses, she's an mind-blowingly great hostess. Her home is cozy and inviting, her family is just as great as she is, and her cooking is superb. So it's no surprise that Rebecca's second cookbook, * The Ultimate Blender Cookbook * , is superb, too.
