Aah. This is what I miss most doing every week – my WoW post. Hehe
I have no excuse that will suffice my absence for 2 weeks or more. I have just been utterly busy and found no time to prepare my WoWs. Busy doing what you ask. Hmm. Eating and spending time with family. :D

So for today, I’m going to be featuring something us foodies and chef-wannabes can all relate to.

Pizza, Love and Other Stuff That Made Me Famous by Kathryn Williams

SUMMARY: Can a spot on a teen reality show really lead to a scholarship at an elite cooking school AND a summer romance?

Sixteen-year-old Sophie Nicolaides was practically raised in the kitchen of her family’s Italian-Greek restaurant, Taverna Ristorante. When her best friend, Alex, tries to convince her to audition for a new reality show, Teen Test Kitchen, Sophie is reluctant. But the prize includes a full scholarship to one of America’s finest culinary schools and a summer in Napa, California, not to mention fame.

Once on-set, Sophie immediately finds herself in the thick of the drama—including a secret burn book, cutthroat celebrity judges, and a very cute French chef. Sophie must figure out a way to survive all the heat and still stay true to herself. A terrific YA offering–fresh, fun, and sprinkled with romance.

I love cooking shows and I’m currently following the kitchen trials and travails of young chef-hopefuls in the Junior Master Chef Pinoy Edition. Hope you liked what I picked. And mucho thanks for the warm welcome week after week despite, yes, my previous absences. ;)
