Leila Lindholm, of Swedish-Moroccan background, began her career in the restaurant world. During her career as a chef, Leila has worked at several well-known restaurants including Aquavit in New York, Operakällaren and Fredsgatan 12 in Stockholm. Today she works primarily in TV, where she has gained a huge following. Her primetime cooking show is called Leila’s Food and airs on Swedish lifestyle channel, TV4 Plus. She also frequently appears cooking her simple and fast recipes on the biggest morning show in Sweden, the TV4 Morning News show, whose viewers voted her ‘TV Chef of the Year’ in 2004. Her previous cookbooks, A Piece of Cake and One More Slice, both published by New Holland, have sold thousands of copies and in several countries including the US, France, Germany, Holland and Italy.

I received a copy of Hello Cupcake. There are no chapters in the book but there is a table of contents in the beginning listing every recipe with the book. Recipes are well written and easy to understand. There are softly colored pretty photos on almost every page and with each recipe. Missing are cooking and prep time, which I feel is invaluable in a cookbook. Recipes I am looking forward to trying include Blueberry Lemon Cupcakes, Chocolate Swirl Cheesecake Cupcakes, Strawberry Cupcakes, Jane’s Apple Pie Cupcakes and Chocolate Whoopie Pies, amongst others. This cookbook would be great for anyone that likes to bake or entertain.
