Cookbook author Allyson Reedy shares her kitchen confessions
Food writer Allyson Reedy loves dessert.
What's new: Her new cookbook, "50 Things to Bake Before You Die," compiles some of the best recipes from top-notch bakers and chefs across the country.
- The former Denver Post food writer likes to tell hilarious and candid tales about culinary happenings, and says she had quite a journey with the new book as she tested each of the recipes.
Behind the scenes: Reedy shared a few kitchen confessions — and successes — to make us all feel better:
- "I've never successfully gotten a bundt cake out of the pan," she admits. (To get a photo for her book, she bought one at Walmart and scraped off the topping.)
- "I'm not team fruit at all. Before this book, I pretty much hated every dessert with fruit." (Now she loves lemon bars.)
- "You have to have a lunch dessert. Everyone should be eating more dessert. We'd all be happier."
- "So many I expected to ruin, and they actually turned out. Macaroons … they just seem so magical that someone like me can't make this. But on my first try they worked out."
Mark your calendar: Hear Reedy talk about her book and eat delectable treats at 6pm on April 19 at the Tattered Cover in Westminster.
