Ever wonder what it would be like to chuck your job, pull up your roots, and follow your passion? For most of us, that’s not an option. But you can always experience it vicariously by reading biographies. In Confections of a Closet Master Baker, Gesine Bullock-Prado gives up the fast-paced, stressed-out world of Hollywood (she’s Sandra Bullock’s sister) for the opportunity to pursue her dream of opening a small, country bakery/café in Montpelier, Vermont. Better not read this one if you’re on a diet, though; every chapter ends with a recipe for a delicious, mouth-watering pastry sure to send you to the kitchen hunting for the butter and sugar.
