I am thrilled to announce that I have submitted my completed manuscript to Gibbs-Smith Publisher for a book on one of my very favorite flavors, caramel. The title is simply Caramel. It has 65 easy to create 'from scratch' caramel recipes (no artifical anything) for home cooks. The publication date is September 1, 2013. Below is the cover of Caramel and a link to where you can pre-order it at Amazon.com. Just after that are some photos of what you can make. Enjoy!

Hurrah for me. After about 2 years of yoga instructor training I have graduated and can now call myself a Registered Yoga Teacher, RYT 200, with Yoga Alliance. My specialty styles are Hatha and Vinyasa. Some of my colleagues and friends have commented that I have reinvented myself but actually yoga is another creative extension of what I love to do--make, write, and teach fabulous desserts and practice (and teach) yoga. It would be great to see you in one of my classes—yoga or desserts. Namaste!
My very latest published book is Intensely Chocolate: 100 Tantalizing Recipes for the Ultimate in Chocolate Flavor (John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2010). The word intensely is the best word to use in the title to describe this book because the 100 recipes are for very serious chocolate lovers. Most of the recipes are made with high cacao content dark chocolate. The book has 40 sumptuously enticing photos (see the top of each of my website pages for a preview of these photos). In addition to regular book sellers like Barnes and Noble, and Amazon, Intensely Chocolate is also sold through the following book clubs: The Good Cook, Rhapsody, The Literary Guild, and HomeStyle. Below is the cover.
The Chicago Sun-Times (December 29, 2010) includes Intensely Chocolate as one of the 10 notable cookbooks for 2010. Tom Witom of the Sun-Times states that "... cakes, brownies and tarts to muffins, custard and frozen confections--opens new vistas for dessert makers at all skill levels." He further states that "Enticing photography, clear instructions and useful guidance on ingredients and techniques add to the book's appeal."
