Featured Author of the Month

This month instead of an author, we will be featuring cookbooks and the authors that wrote them. Here are three of the featured authors:

Featuring more than 80 recipes (including some that are gluten-free, vegan or both) for cookies, cakes, brownies, pies, muffins and more, Lopez's approach is easy to follow. For more time-intensive recipes--white wedding cake, anyone? --Lopez uses her analytic business skills to split the steps into 30-minute-or-less increments over several days for "a damn good dessert any night of the week you want one." --Melissa Firman, writer, editor and blogger at
