This week I had the pleasure of dining on an amazing lunch at The Waldorf Astoria hosted by Susan Whetzel, author of The S'mores Cookbook and She's Becoming DoughMessTic blog! My new food blogger friends (I love making new friends!) and I celebrated the launch of Susan's The S'mores Cookbook and book tour. I'm sure you will fall in love with The S'mores Cookbook as I did! Bursting with sixty two S'mores recipes, you will want to make every recipe in the book! Among my favorites are S'more-tini, S'mores Crème Brulee, Double Chocolate S'mores Ice Cream Pie, S'mores On A Stick, Mini S'mores Trifles, S'mores Mousse Cups.....ok, I have to admit, I could go on and on, because they are all my favorites!
The grand finale to an amazing lunch were these S'mores inspired desserts created by Waldorf Astoria Executive Pastry Chef Charlie Romano. Almost too pretty to eat (but trust me we did!), feast your eyes on, left to right, Marshmallow Meringue Banana Maple Tarts, S'mores Brownies and Chocolate Macaroons with Rooftop Honey! OMG! Talk about desserts to die for!
I'd like to take a minute and introduce you to my new food blogger friends! Top left to right, Susan Whetzel of She's Becoming DoughMessTic and The S'mores Cookbook author, Yours Truly, and Kelly Senyei of Just A Taste and Food Blogging for Dummies author (yes, I bought her book several years ago!). Bottom left to right, Kristina Vanni of Better Recipes and Cooking Contest Central and Amie Valpone of The Healthy Apple. I love their blogs and I'm sure you will too!
Susan was such a gracious host and not only presented me with this beautiful gift basket filled with S'mores goodies and my very own S'mores cookbook but she gave me an autographed copy of The S'mores Cookbook for one of my blog followers too!
