Rustic Joyful Food Cookbook

"Rustic Joyful Food"
My heart's table
by
Danielle Kartes
 
I would like to introduce you to a wonderful new cookbook...it's
filled with all kinds of goodies, each recipe was made with love
of family, food and fellowship...We're so proud of
our niece Danielle Kartes who has worked so
hard to make this book and her dream come true.
 She owned and operated the cutest little restaurant/bistro called 
Minoela in Tacoma...there she made
so many one of kind dishes...and this place was
busy every night...she made everything homemade and from scratch.
She is a wonderful chef, so believe me you won't be disappointed
when you buy this cookbook!

This is one of my favorites...they are sooo yummy!

I ordered mine yesterday and I cannot wait to try all the
wonderful recipes...I've added her link where you can read
her story and where you can purchase this unique and
not your everyday cookbook...this is a book one will cherish!
Thanks so much and happy cooking!
