At all my book events, I have been bringing along mini pies and thumbprint cookies with jam.
The baking figures prominently in my book trailer and in my book, because In ONE MORE DAY, the main character, Carrie Morgan, bakes with her grandmother, as she did when she was a little girl. However, it's not clear whether her grandmother is dead or alive. :)
Many of my grandmother's and mother's recipes have been lost. But in their place, I have Ina Garten.
