A few weeks ago, my sister and her hubby went on a trip to California. While they were gone, Austin and I kept their doggie, Riley. Riley is such a sweet guest, and she always brings her babysitters wonderful "thank you" presents. The book White Jacket Required was my latest "thank you" gift from that little pup. I read it right away because I'd been itching to get my hands on a copy for quite awhile.
The book follows one of my favorite bloggers, Jenna Weber of EatLiveRun.com, on her journey through culinary school, and I felt like I got a good glimpse into what her life was like while she was trying to "figure herself out".
I've read all of Jenna's posts, so I already knew her "story", but it was cool to read it through her eyes as she looked back on all of the events in her past. I also loved that at the end of each chapter she included one or more recipes that had to do with the previous chapter.
I wouldn't say that this is necessarily the best book I've ever read, but it was entertaining! I think it would be the perfect thing to take on a vacation or to read while you're relaxing by the pool this summer.
I'm looking forward to Jenna writing an actual cookbook because I love love LOVE her recipes. Here are some links to my favorites:
Creamy White Chicken Chili
Sweet and Spicy Crock Pot Ribs
Buffalo Chicken Dip
If you've never checked out Jenna's site, give it a whirl!
Happy Friday, friends...have a great weekend and happy St. Patty's!!
