I like the way this Tammy Donroe person thinks. Most of us assume, with the end of the holidays, that the Dessert Overload must come to a halt.
Not Donroe! The esteemed cookbook author's latest effort, "WINTERSWEET: Seasonal Desserts to Warm the Home," is a triumphant paean to the idea of protracted culinary goodness as long as the temperature remains frosty. Consider this blurb from Publisher's Weekly: "The seasonally minded cook will delight in the ingenuity of this tome dedicated to the dark days of winter."
Me? Tammy, you had me "Coconut Sunshine Cake with Citrus Curd."
Even better is the fact that Donroe will discuss and sign copies of "WINTERSWEET" Saturday in New London's always welcoming Monte Cristo Bookshop. And, yes, she's bringing free samples!
