No, not my review, although I am currently reading "It Must've Been Something I Ate" by Jeffrey Steingarten. I googled it up to see what other people thought about it and came across this one from ochef.com. I've never seen a review arranged in such a way; a table of key words and figures gives a quick run down of parts of the book's contents that you wouldn't usually think about (like the Table of Contents). Mm, I love tasty information design. Tastes like...um. CAKE!
Today for lunch I ate a navel orange, a lot of potato chips (those huge kettle chip things; goddamn my brother for buying a huge bag), a small slice of chocolate cheesecake (damn my brother again) and raisins. And water. I didn't even try to make that balanced, did I? Yesterday I had a nice cheeseburger dinner, which I shall talk about later.

I found your site via Cupcakes take the Cake.
I'm very glad I did.
You are a very good writer and more so because you have a passion and yet you are honest about your struggle.
Not trying to sound like I'm being condescending here. But keep doing what you do so well -- writing.
