As you know, I have been trying (emphasis on trying) to make dinner more often for my fiance, so it was great timing to receive an email from them about a new cook book. They were praising the delicious food creations by model turned chef, Sophie Dahl (her grandfather was the famous children's book author Roald Dahl). She was in the celebrity media years ago for losing a lot of weight...she used to be a plus size model and then got thin. She was a popular model in both categories.

Anyway, on to her cook book....Miss Dahl's Voluptuous Delights.

Ooh, cake.

I love deserts and this one looks just scrumptious!

Check out the video of her cooking one of her yummy asparagus soups on Daily Candy here.


  1. Oh, my goodness, she's beautiful! I definitely need to put this book on my list, thanks!!

  2. Looks like some good recipes. I just bought the new Cook's Illustrated Best Recipe book -- over 1,000 recipes!

  3. So are these low-cal recipes...or will they make you voluptuous? LOL
