A True Story to Inspire You to Be Yourself

by Laura Wells McKnight

Book Image Not Available
Overview
Do you ever wonder whether you are good enough? Then this book is for you. Cereal for Dinner, Cake for Dessert is no ordinary self-improvement book. Cereal for Dinner, Cake for Dessert is as entertaining as it is inspiring, written with down-to-earth wit, compassion and enthusiasm for the challenges encountered by any aspiring good girl (regardless of her chronological age) who is attempting to check the boxes for everything life seems to demand of a modern female. Cereal for Dinner, Cake for Dessert is a true story based on meaningful and sometimes outrageous personal experiences that ultimately inspire the author to create her own definition of what it means to have it all. She sends the youngest of five daughters to kindergarten. She ponders whether the bacon smell in her corner office is a sign that she should leave her job. She searches for the perfect shade of lipstick. She tries her hand at saving a tiny corner of the planet by recycling as many cans of all-natural soda as possible. She tests dozens of cake recipes to see how many layers a birthday cake can actually handle without crashing to the floor. All while striving to do good for others in as many ways as possible. Cereal for Dinner, Cake for Dessert is an honest and uplifting memoir of one woman’s determination to create a fairy tale job for herself that celebrates every form of charitable giving imaginable and still requires baking at least one cake a month.
