Molly’s post this month features a fun anthology of dessert recipes from authors – what’s not to like? Next month we will be having a celebration of her newest book, so stay tuned!-AA
Here’s a book, fresh out of the oven, full of dessert recipes old and new. It’s Bake Love Write, edited by Lois Winston, USA Today bestselling author of the Anastasia Pollock Crafting Mystery series. But this isn’t just another cookbook offering indulgent sweets (although there are some that sound so good they make you want to cry). Each of the 105 recipes was contributed by an author who also shared the best advice she’s ever received on love and writing.
Some of the contributing authors? Terry Shames, B.V. Lawson, Helena Fairfax, Bobbi A. Chukran, Sloan McBride, me. Some of the recipes? Molten Chocolate Lava Cakes, Lavender Shortbread Cookies, Retro Homemade Peach Pie (Amy will like that one). And what doesn’t appear anywhere in the cookbook? Prunes. Amy will like that, too.
I have some rhubarb in the refrigerator and I’m going to make Helena Fairfax’s Rhubarb Crumble and Custard. I won’t show you the recipe (the e-book is only 99 cents and a portion of the proceeds will go to charity), but if you visit the Bake Love Write Pinterest page, you’ll see a picture of it and many of the other recipes, which are sure to make you drool. Just please be sure to wipe your chin when you’ve finished.
And here’s something fun starting today and running through October 23rd – Thirty of the authors in Bake Love Write are having a scavenger hunt and offering over 60 prizes to participants who visit the authors’ websites and blogs. Full information can be found on Sloan McBride’s blog, including links to the authors’ pages and a link to the answer sheet.
