Wow, so boring. I did appreciate how she didn't say a disparaging word about any of her exes, and I was happy to read about her relationship with Yanni as written by her instead of by others who might have been speculating. Each short chapter contains a recipe, so they are not allocated to one section where it would be easier to read the book and to find the recipes. The recipes are boring and simple; I didn't find a single one I wanted to prepare, sadly. She speaks of loving God yet blasphemes His holy name on several occasions. Very sad and confusing.
