Candid, relatable, confessional, and opinionated, you won't be able to put down this intriguing tome. Adventures of A Terribly Greedy Girl includes 25 pivotal recipes that Kay has discovered along the way, including Ivy on the Shore Salad, Salty-sweet Peanut Cookies, and Thai Gravadlax. Imagine Adventures of A Terribly Greedy Girl as a book written by the illegitimate child of Nora Ephron and Laurie Colwin, dusted with a little Eastern promise. It's a celebration of a tumbling through life, of mistakes, and opportunities laid bare. Joyful, witty, and occasionally indiscreet, this is a book that stares at menopause with a gin in hand and looks back at a life entirely unplanned.
