Here, meet her herself:
I have to say that I feel a special connection to Alana since she and her husband used to live in our house - they had their first child in our recording studio even. I am also very honored that Alana used one of my favorite recipes in her book!
But enough about that, let's talk about marshmallows.
Alana's book came out last week and I bought it right away. I flipped through the pages in awe of the things that I now feel even more empowered to make. I went to her book signing where she served a few of the tasty snacks from her book (and some maple popcorn too!) - and that's where I had the marshmallow. See, my daughter's birthday is on Saturday and we decided to have a cookout and bonfire for her party. As I bit into that marshmallow I realized that bonfires required marshmallows and that I had been subconsciously ignoring that fact until just that moment.
So, I went home and opened the book and tried my first attempt at making my own marshmallows.
Now, how do I keep the troops from testing a few before Saturday??
