A few months ago, my friend Monet faced tough times. The loss of loved ones dear to her heart. Although the pain is still greatly felt, she has many friends who care deeply for her. Together some of her blog buddies created a book of recipes, as a way to send love to Monet, who among a great many things is a beautiful baker and writer. Please do visit Monet at Anecdotes and Apple Cores, and send your healing love.
Today, we are all sharing our contributed recipes.
