    I loved this book?and blurbed it, and I don't even like cooking! If Tabitha can make a recipe-phobic person like me not just want to read recipes, but perhaps even consider cooking, you know something magical is going on! ...

    No book better captures the promise and perils of the writer's life, and the creative counterpoint that is cuisine. In a voice that raw and real, funny and unflinching, Blankenbiller explores what it means to yearn and learn, strive and thrive, to try and fail and try again--and, ultim...

    LOVED IT! BLURBED IT! ?Eats of Eden is truly a delicious treat! Blankenbiller is a confident essay writer, making it look easy as she lets us into her hungry heart in this bright, satisfying collection. She waxes on food and being a writer and wrestles with rejection, ambition, a...

    Read it. And blurbed it, yo. ?Is there anything more important than feeling good, eating well, and living passionately? Blankenbiller?s essays would suggest there is not, and I would suggest that with Eats of Eden, there may be no one writing more urgently, humorously, or touchi...

    I was lucky enough to get in on the ground floor with this book, and I can happily say that it delivers. Blankenbiller writes her life raw. Her defeats and victories are palpable, her day-to-day life is yours. It's rare to meet an author that can transport you so fully--not into an ima...

    Funny, relatable and written with a searing, sharp wit. And there are recipes! (seriously, a well-written collection of personal essays that start with food, but explore all areas of life- highly recommended!) ...

    A feast of the senses and the writerly sensibilities, Blankenbiller?s foodoir cuts to the heart of the things that elude us?success, ex-friends, the perfect lemon meringue pie. A debut to savor! (...ALSO THE PATATAS BRAVAS RECIPE COMPLETELY SLAYS.) ...

    I'm the editor for this book, and I completely love it. It's tender and heartfelt, while remaining self-aware and universal. I cried through some parts of it, and laughed out loud at other parts. Through it all, the author combines wit, intelligent writing, humor, recipes, and heart-to...

    One of the best books I?ve read about the writing process. It?s also about womanhood, coming of age, finding home and the joy of food. Blankenbiller?s writing is spirited, funny, authentic. I wanted to savor this book of essays that end up telling a full story, but it was hard to...

    We are the editors and publisher of this book, so, we're biased, yes! But we adore this foodoir because it is so heartfelt and real. It will make you laugh out loud, and it will make you tear up at the loving friend, mentor, wife, lover-of-life, and foody behind the cover. It is enjoya...

    In her memoir composed of essays, Tabitha Blankenbiller worries that she?s not enough even as an abundance surrounds her. An artist, both in the kitchen and on the page, Blankenbiller loves recipes. Especially those that bring comfort to the soul and that represent love to family. Bu...

    "Eats of Eden" is a must-read for anyone who struggles with writing or has fears of rejection and failure. Blankenbiller so accurately details the life of a writer that, at times, I had to stop and wonder if she was just telling my story. Not only was her personal life story and anecdo...

    Plenty of laugh out loud moments and sympathetic tears to be shed while reading this clever collection of essays. The recipes truly add something special (and totally sassy). The essays are written with details that transported me to spots I've never visited, with descriptions of meals...

    Eats of Eden is a collection of personal essays, each ending with a recipe. But it?s so much more than that. It?s a coming-of-age story, charting the author?s parallel development as writer, cook, and human. We follow her ambitions and dreams of perfection?at her desk, in the k...

    I inhaled this book like a bowl of rich, creamy risotto - licking the bowl when I was done and checking the pot to see if there was any left. I read many books of essays last year and many of them were good, but most of them were so-so. Not this book. I read (and liked) every single es...

    Yes, you need another sugar cookie recipe. But there is much more to this book than all the recipes and cooking tales. This is a charming debut, a collection of essays on a variety of topics (food, friendship, family, marriage, housing, financial struggle) that centers on one crucia...

    I *loved* this book and was so sad when I reached the last page. Reading Tabitha's book is like sitting down for coffee with a close friend whom you haven't seen in a while and thus have a lot of catching up to do. If you're not normally an essay person, please do not be put off by the...

    If you're trying to be a writer there is some serious advice and description of the slog. The sassiest parts are about the cooking. Sometimes the young 20 angst was too much for me. The writer lives in Portland and grew up in the Seattle area. I really enjoyed the sense of place th...

    Tabitha Blankenbiller's foodoir is a delight. I love the idea of this book and I love the actual book. Rich tasty essays and recipes as well. The essays take you on a ride of self exploration and discovery and the food that goes with it. ...

    An exceedingly delicious book that tells resonant truths about the process of writing and food. It felt like Blankenbiller had flipped open the top of my head on several occasions. Come for the sense of writerly kinship, stay for the food! ...

    Blankenbiller's undeniably charming voice guides us through these essays about forming an adult self. ...

    Take time with this book; enjoy its individual essays and the recipes that accompany them. I think I enjoyed it more for the time it took to finish reading them, and the pace the essays encouraged. ...

    Tabitha is a warm and witty writer, full of heart and verge. This is a terrific book. ...

    One of the best books I?ve read about the writing process. It?s also about womanhood, coming of age, finding home and the joy of food. Blankenbiller?s writing is spirited, funny, authentic. I wanted to savor this book of essays that end up telling a full story, but it was hard to...

    We are the editors and publisher of this book, so, we're biased, yes! But we adore this foodoir because it is so heartfelt and real. It will make you laugh out loud, and it will make you tear up at the loving friend, mentor, wife, lover-of-life, and foody behind the cover. It is enjoya...

    In her memoir composed of essays, Tabitha Blankenbiller worries that she?s not enough even as an abundance surrounds her. An artist, both in the kitchen and on the page, Blankenbiller loves recipes. Especially those that bring comfort to the soul and that represent love to family. Bu...

    "Eats of Eden" is a must-read for anyone who struggles with writing or has fears of rejection and failure. Blankenbiller so accurately details the life of a writer that, at times, I had to stop and wonder if she was just telling my story. Not only was her personal life story and anecdo...

    Eats of Eden is a collection of personal essays, each ending with a recipe. But it?s so much more than that. It?s a coming-of-age story, charting the author?s parallel development as writer, cook, and human. We follow her ambitions and dreams of perfection?at her desk, in the k...

    I inhaled this book like a bowl of rich, creamy risotto - licking the bowl when I was done and checking the pot to see if there was any left. I read many books of essays last year and many of them were good, but most of them were so-so. Not this book. I read (and liked) every single es...

    I *loved* this book and was so sad when I reached the last page. Reading Tabitha's book is like sitting down for coffee with a close friend whom you haven't seen in a while and thus have a lot of catching up to do. If you're not normally an essay person, please do not be put off by the...

    If you're trying to be a writer there is some serious advice and description of the slog. The sassiest parts are about the cooking. Sometimes the young 20 angst was too much for me. The writer lives in Portland and grew up in the Seattle area. I really enjoyed the sense of place th...

    An exceedingly delicious book that tells resonant truths about the process of writing and food. It felt like Blankenbiller had flipped open the top of my head on several occasions. Come for the sense of writerly kinship, stay for the food! ...

    I was lucky enough to get in on the ground floor with this book, and I can happily say that it delivers. Blankenbiller writes her life raw. Her defeats and victories are palpable, her day-to-day life is yours. It's rare to meet an author that can transport you so fully--not into an ima...

    In her memoir composed of essays, Tabitha Blankenbiller worries that she?s not enough even as an abundance surrounds her. An artist, both in the kitchen and on the page, Blankenbiller loves recipes. Especially those that bring comfort to the soul and that represent love to family. Bu...

    "Eats of Eden" is a must-read for anyone who struggles with writing or has fears of rejection and failure. Blankenbiller so accurately details the life of a writer that, at times, I had to stop and wonder if she was just telling my story. Not only was her personal life story and anecdo...

    One of the best books I?ve read about the writing process. It?s also about womanhood, coming of age, finding home and the joy of food. Blankenbiller?s writing is spirited, funny, authentic. I wanted to savor this book of essays that end up telling a full story, but it was hard to...

    We are the editors and publisher of this book, so, we're biased, yes! But we adore this foodoir because it is so heartfelt and real. It will make you laugh out loud, and it will make you tear up at the loving friend, mentor, wife, lover-of-life, and foody behind the cover. It is enjoya...

    In her memoir composed of essays, Tabitha Blankenbiller worries that she?s not enough even as an abundance surrounds her. An artist, both in the kitchen and on the page, Blankenbiller loves recipes. Especially those that bring comfort to the soul and that represent love to family. Bu...

    "Eats of Eden" is a must-read for anyone who struggles with writing or has fears of rejection and failure. Blankenbiller so accurately details the life of a writer that, at times, I had to stop and wonder if she was just telling my story. Not only was her personal life story and anecdo...

    Plenty of laugh out loud moments and sympathetic tears to be shed while reading this clever collection of essays. The recipes truly add something special (and totally sassy). The essays are written with details that transported me to spots I've never visited, with descriptions of meals...

    I loved this book?and blurbed it, and I don't even like cooking! If Tabitha can make a recipe-phobic person like me not just want to read recipes, but perhaps even consider cooking, you know something magical is going on! ...

    No book better captures the promise and perils of the writer's life, and the creative counterpoint that is cuisine. In a voice that raw and real, funny and unflinching, Blankenbiller explores what it means to yearn and learn, strive and thrive, to try and fail and try again--and, ultim...

    I was lucky enough to get in on the ground floor with this book, and I can happily say that it delivers. Blankenbiller writes her life raw. Her defeats and victories are palpable, her day-to-day life is yours. It's rare to meet an author that can transport you so fully--not into an ima...

    Funny, relatable and written with a searing, sharp wit. And there are recipes! (seriously, a well-written collection of personal essays that start with food, but explore all areas of life- highly recommended!) ...

    I *loved* this book and was so sad when I reached the last page. Reading Tabitha's book is like sitting down for coffee with a close friend whom you haven't seen in a while and thus have a lot of catching up to do. If you're not normally an essay person, please do not be put off by the...

    Tabitha Blankenbiller's foodoir is a delight. I love the idea of this book and I love the actual book. Rich tasty essays and recipes as well. The essays take you on a ride of self exploration and discovery and the food that goes with it. ...

    An exceedingly delicious book that tells resonant truths about the process of writing and food. It felt like Blankenbiller had flipped open the top of my head on several occasions. Come for the sense of writerly kinship, stay for the food! ...

    Take time with this book; enjoy its individual essays and the recipes that accompany them. I think I enjoyed it more for the time it took to finish reading them, and the pace the essays encouraged. ...

    Tabitha is a warm and witty writer, full of heart and verge. This is a terrific book. ...

    Eats of Eden is absolutely delightful. I knew it would be funny and charming and also knew recipes were involved. What I didn't know is that it's also a book about writing and about what it means to be a writer. (Here's my blurb: "It's Julie and Julia meets Bird by Bird!") Though...
