Book Club






I love Book Club. I love to read, and according to my sassy twelve-year-old, it's my only real hobby. But the truth is I also love to eat dessert; Book Club provides an outlet for both of my hobbies, be they real or not.




Seriously though, we have the best desserts at our meetings. Last month Kim E. made the most amazing panna cotta, Laura has served unforgettable fruit pizza, Suzy whips up lots of homemade treats including pie, Annee has been known to wow us with the Oreo ice cream cake creation as well as the angel food raspberry luscious cake, Lynn made meringues with raspberry sauce that were low-cal in addition to being delicious. The list goes on and on.







I usually chicken out and buy something because the pressure is too much, but tonight I bit the bullet and made a new recipe that I've been wanting to try for ages. It was delicious and I was grateful to have an excuse to make something out of the ordinary. I guess after three years of reading and eating and confiding in each other I felt like I could make something new and try it out on them. They'd probably all still like me even if it had turned out poorly. This Chocolate Harvest Cake was really yummy. If you want the recipe, leave a comment and I will email it to you.




Happy reading and bon appetit!

The cake WAS divine - to eat and just to look at! It was a great book discussion too! I'm glad I made it. :)

The cake tasted delicious and looked amazing. It makes me wish I had taken a picture of my panna cotta. Oh well, I guess that just means I need to make it again.

I want the recipe! It's not often you can get a photo and testimonials from actual eaters all at the same time. Yum! Call when you get a minute!

Of course I want the recipe. But mostly, I wanted to be there...I'm still not over the fact that I live in Korea. I read the book too! I have not yet found a new book club. I am trying not to lose hope.

and I missed the great dessert--shoot! I'm still reading the book...what's next months read? (and dessert?) It's a little intimidating in this arena to join the book club!
