Keith Dixon's passion was cooking. For years, he got through difficult days dreaming about the lavish recipes he would cook when he got home. All that changed when his daughter Gracie was born premature. Keith and his wife Jessica adapted to life with a newborn as all parents do--all while dealing with the overwhelming fear that they were going to fail catastrophically in their new roles. Keith learned the hard way that his daughter woke to the simplest kitchen noise, and soon realized that if he wanted his family to eat well, he was going to have to learn to cook all over again. Based on three articles in the New York Times, this is a memoir of how Keith discovers what it means to be a father while still holding on to what made him who he was before his daughter came along. Includes more than 40 recipes.--From publisher description.
