The Sweet Life by Kate Bracks

Need some good old-fashioned loving? No diary here, ladies and gents, but rather a book that is meant to take you on a journey from the basics to the ‘not so easy’ – and it’s all about the sweet things in life. There’s a glorious recipe for simple vanilla ice cream (basic) and another for special occasion vanilla-bean ice cream. I love that Bracks has coded the recipes from easy to hard. Delicious and practical. That’s the type of loving we all need!
