Have you read "Eat, Pray, Love" by Elizabeth Gilbert? I haven't gotten to it yet, but have read fantastic reviews. You might enjoy it, with your other foodie books on this list. Love your goal--I used to read all the time, but it's more of a luxury now. Good luck!

My number one pick that I recommend to everyone who will listen is "The Time Travelers Wife" by Audrey Niffenger. It's a little strange to get into, but once your past the initial "what's going on?"/ first chapter...
Well, my favourite book I've ever read.
