In the age of reality television and movies, this is definitely my brand of reality. Who needs fictional stories when you've got real-life drama right here? The film Kings of Pastry, follows Jacquay Pfeiffer from the French Pastry School in Chicago, along with 15 other chefs, in their journey to win the Meilleurs Ouvriers de France (M.O.F.) or the Best Craftsman in France competition.

The I Hate to Cook Book, the 50th Anniversay Edition of the American Classic, is my kind of cookbook. It brings back so many memories of growing-up and some of the food we ate. It was a time before fast food restaurants, and dinner had to be made every single night.
