By: Amy Atlas, in Great Finds, Recipes
We ordered boxes of Girl Scout cookies and we’re patiently awaiting their arrival.

Amy Atlas Moment: First Birthday Party

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
One of the best things about this book experience so far has been the enormous support that I have received from YOU (thank you). One of the things that makes me smile the most is when our readers tell us that they were given the confidence to create their own dessert tables because of us. At the Bloomingdales event, that is exactly what happened when I met Anne. She spoke about the table she created…

We are loving this dessert table from cake designer Asma of The Sugared Saffron in the UK.
