Desserts in Jars: Book Signing and Demo

This past weekend, I attended a cookbook signing and demo at Kitchen in the Market.   I love this twist on desserts and am excited to have my very own signed cookbook.    

I love that the jars make the dessert portable and a little more casual.    

Shaina Olmanson, who created the blog Food for my Family, is author of the cookbook and took the mouthwatering photos.

She showed us how to make lemon curd for Peach-Raspberry Verrines with Lemon-Thyme Cream.  

I’ve never made lemon curd before and was surprised to learn that it has butter in it!  

As a parting gift we received the mix for Monster Cookies (my favorite) in – you guessed it – a jar.   There is a section in the back of the book called “Mixes for Giving," that has some great recipes and gift ideas.

I can’t wait to try some of the recipes in the book, you should check it out too.   After all, you can never have too many cookbooks.
