Isn't the cover beautiful! She did all the photographs herself and all the photos in the book are taken in her downtown Chicago loft.

Over the holiday weekend, my bestie Lori invited me to her house for dinner and to meet her Aunt Connie who was visiting from Chicago. You see, I LOVE good food and Connie is a FANTASTIC cook. I have heard Lori rave about her numerous times, but had never been able to see for myself until the other night. As soon as I walked in, I knew she was whipping up something wonderful in the kitchen cause it smelled sooooo good. I felt like I was attending a cooking class as I watched her as she slice and dice making it all seem so effortless. The best part is Connie wrote an amazing cookbook called "Scratch That". Not only is it filled with wonderful recipes, but it has a TON of helpful hints. I even bought a few to sell in the store. I know that you can find it at Barnes and Noble or on Amazon, but you can also go directly to her website at www.conniefairbanks.com to purchase one as well.If you are a foodie and love to cook, you are gonna love this cookbook! I bought one for myself and one as a gift. Connie is the real deal. She dosen't claim to be a proffesional chef, she is a "home chef" who just want to share her love of cooking with others.
