Not long ago, I was in a local bookstore and came upon an irresistible title that I’m convinced you will love as much as I do: Dessert Can Save the World: Stories, Secrets, and Recipes for a Stubbornly Joyful Existence.
It’s the kind of book I put on my nightstand to fill my soul with goodness as my head hits the pillow.
And really, in my nocturnal universe, this read gave new meaning to the phrase Sweet Dreams.
So I must share it with you. Prepare to smile–even at the back cover, which says, Dessert connects us heart to heart like almost nothing else. Dessert brings us together in good times and bad, celebration and solace. It marks big and small milestones and creates memories of comfort and joy. And author Christina Tosi, an award-winning pastry chef, believes it can save the world. Does the combination of sugar, flour and butter have some magical ability to fix all the craziness of our modern existence? Of course not. Tosi knows a cookie is just a cookie–but bringing the joy a cookie holds into every area of your life most definitely can.
You’re in for a treat here, friends, and even a chance to share your own personal “dirty dessert secrets”!
