Curl up with a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy one of the delectable, mouthwatering desserts from this enchanting collection of not-too-difficult family recipes.
Two sisters take you on a journey down memory lane using watercolor paintings of the desserts they've enjoyed over the years. Who can resist this banquet of fifty fabulous mostly Italian desserts? They include an easy tiramisu, a simple cannoli, two kinds of biscotti, along with a number of non-Italian but equally delicious tried-and-true recipes such as almond praline meringue cake, linzer torte, and even French macarons.
The whimsical watercolors that go along with the recipes were created by award-winning watercolor artist, Loretta Barra. Contributing recipes and text is her sister, Joanne Pence, an award-winning USA Today bestselling author. They hope this unique and easy-to-use cookbook will become a permanent part of any cookbook collection.
