75 recipes to rave about

My book celebrates delicious food as much as fond memories. As I developed the first inventory of recipes, I realized that my family recipes were mainly desserts and holiday meals. To broaden the selection, I added my favourite “go-to” recipes. What attracts me in a recipe is the little touch that transforms a simple dish into a memorable one. Bon appétit!
