  "I didn’t make this to be a book that you’ll look through then forget on your shelf. This is a book that’s meant to get a heavy workout on your kitchen counter – with sticky sections and flour-covered pages – and you knowing it’s a go-to resource for people when they want some sweetness in their lives." -Miriam Pascal  



Traditional tiramisu is a coffee-flavored dessert, noted for its ladyfingers soaked in espresso. I reinterpreted this fabulous dessert into cakey Tiramisu Cookies, packed with coffee flavor and rolled in coffee-soaked ladyfinger crumbs.   



Pomegranates are beautiful fruits, loaded with health benefits and delicious flavors, so it’s a shame they aren’t used more in baking! These easy-to-make and unusual Pomegranate Cupcakes have a delicate fruity flavor and pretty pink appearance, thanks to the glaze.   



This recipe for Neapolitan Trifles was created out of necessity. I needed a dessert recipe that looked pretty, traveled well, and could be made ahead and frozen when fully completed. This one fits all of those criteria. It freezes well, can be stored frozen and transported in a sealed jar, looks gorgeous, and tastes great. It was a hit, and surely will be a hit at your parties too!
