Do they even know me China?

Did I ever mention that my cookbook was translated into Chinese?

< < Here’s the cover.

I don’t know if that’s my name at the top or not.

But those are the recipe photos I took.

The printing, especially the photos, look pretty bad. I’m guessing the children making it weren’t tall enough to run the press properly!

Do they know me in China?

Probably not.

Here’s the original cover with my picture on it  > > > >

You don’t see me on the Chinese cover.

It looks like they anticipated better sales with a quesedilla than my face!

321, no 378 cookies!

It’s New Year’s Eve and I’m getting ready for our annual open house tomorrow. It’s a small group of about 35 friends (mostly the same ones every year) and it’s turned into a competition of how much can a person eat in one sitting! Lamb chops, sushi, paninis, crab cakes, deviled eggs… all devoured in a span of four hours. It’s actually two guys who eat most of the food and you know who you are. 🙂 The food is catered and I bake all the desserts. Today I made 97 macaroons, 48 lemon bars, 47 meringues, 49 pfefferneusses, 38 truffles, 48 seven-layer bars, and 51 chili-chocolate-cherry cookies. That’s 378 cookies! And it’s not enough! Let’s see…378 divided by 35 is 10 – almost 11 – desserts per person! Yikes!! Everyone needs to walk home!

(*Saturday morning correction: I made more macaroons last night – the chocolate dipped ones!)
