Earlier this year I met a crew of passionate Foodie Bloggers at the Food Bloggers Connect conference. Amongst the bevy of London bloggers, I was lucky enough to meet Atlanta-born Morgan who gives me the most serious case of foodie photography envy, documenting her favourite recipes on her blog Peaches Please!
Fellow Whovian fan, Morgan kindly guest posted earlier in the year with her Pumpkin Coffee Cake Cake, which gave a taster of her delectable recipes. When she told me about publishing an E-book with 12 Christmas Desserts, I wanted in.
To be quite serious I mostly wanted in on tasting them, but alas with Morgan on the other side of the Atlantic, I had to settle for the beautiful recipes and my own cooking of them instead.
That’s the beauty of a cookbook though you see – and I’d seriously recommend this one for the scrumptiousness it contains. At only $5.00 (about £3.60) it’s a steal. The recipes are divided into 4 categories: Child Friendly, Potlucks, Dinner Parties and Cocktail Parties, so you know exactly where to look when you need a dessert for one of these occasions.
Why did she write it?
I love Christmas. I love the lights, the smells, the music, the hustle and bustle, sitting by the fire, the whirl of parties, festive office lunches, wishing strangers “Merry Christmas,” seeing family and old friends…I even like the craze of shopping malls and streets. And yes, I listen to Christmas music all year long. I know, I’m a little nuts.
All the measurements are American/Metric (Cups etc.) but are super easy to convert. I’m still a firm lover of baking with Cups, but then I’m a Kiwi and we’re always done things a little differently to our English forefathers.
If you fancy a little slice of Morgan’s Christmas deliciousness, check out the e-book 12 Desserts of Christmas here. Oh, and to celebrate, Morgan is doing a little giveaway for her US readers here. Tell her I sent you!
