A Night on the Town with The Happy Baker!

Life is full of surprises and twists, and last night was one of those awesome nights. What made it so great was that I crashed a condo holiday party {yes, I was the token party crasher, but I wasn't wearing a sari!} and I met an eclectic group of individuals ranging from Mafia-looking guys in suits to a guy dressed like Brett Michael's. No kidding-this holiday party was off the hook! In the midst of this party, I literally bumped into Erin Bolger, who isn't related to any famous Boston mafia families with the same last name.  She jumped at the opportunity to tell me about her book, The Happy Baker: A Dater's Guide to Emotional Baking, which was also listed as one of the top cookbooks of 2010 by the New York Times! I couldn't stop from doing a happy dance for her! A top cookbook listed on the NYT is serious street cred.

Meet Erin Bolger

From the moment I started to talk to Erin, she had me laughing and mesmerized.  She has such a natural gift for telling stories with humor that I wasn't surprise to learn that her book combined not just recipes, but tales from the front lines of dating. Later that evening, I had an opportunity to check out her book. It's filled with beautiful full color photograph and tons of sweet recipes for helping a girl out through the tough side of dating. I also got a tasty preview of a her new Peanut Butter Fudge recipe. To die for yummy! Erin is in fact so generous she's sharing this recipe on her blog, too.  Now, I'm married, but I totally remember the era of my own single days, filled with all the leaps and falls.  This cookbook is better than hanging with Dr. Phil. It's a must-have for all girls, single, married, or in between.  Want to get a feel for some of Erin's zest? Check out this awesome video. I'm telling're going to love Erin as much as I do!
