Jane Marsh Cooks: Diva Party Recipes with Color and Poety
Dedication: These Holiday Desserts are dedicated to my eternally memorable mother. Beauty was her life force. Totally, and with color creations of flowers and food-functionally coordinated and displayed with rhythmic merriment and elegance-decorating was food for her soul. In an exhibition reminiscent of Luxury Homes & Gardens, she wrapped one up in the musical whirl of her delivery.
Her diva-like, and incredibly vivid party displays are still, and always will be, Something to Sing About!
