If you want a feel good Sterek with very little angst and tons of warm fuzzies - then this will fit the bill.
Sheer food porn!
Long loving descriptions of food preparations - I'm definitely planning to try the Salmon Chowder and check out a healthier Peanut butter cookie recipe ;)
I enjoyed the fic though I wasn't looking for a cookery lesson (I'm very happy with my own potato mash and do not have shares in cream!) and Stiles' buisness idea seemed a big stretch.
Derek is a rich recluse but it's strange to me because we meet his perfect happy family with no glimpse of angst or cannon-tragedy which means his character doesn't add up, there's no explanations.
There are hints of wolfiness, marking, sniffing, mine, strong, perfect looks - but this is AU with out the Were-factor.
Family christmas prep is cute, but who has time to make all those cookies? it's a bit Stepford son!It's warm comfortable reading if you don't look too close and I enjoyed it.
I enjoyed this simply because I am a foodie...
