Praise For Baked Occasions: Desserts for Leisure Activities, Holidays, and Informal Celebrations

"Honey, don't open this book unless you are prepared to drop to your knees and, in my case, beg somebody to make you every one of these recipes! If you do cook, be prepared to run home, get out the pans, the measuring cups, and the ingredients and start baking January through December, all in a day or two—in this case, send me some!"

— Whoopi Goldberg

— Giada De Laurentiis
