    I love so many of Alex's recipes but my favorite is the baked cinnamon apples with rum (http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alexandra-guarnaschelli/baked-apples-with-rum-and-cinnamon-recipe/index.html) Yummy!! Simple adult treat. Especially good on a cold winter day.

    My son loves Alex, since he has been tutored at home, she was his first crush. He made this Creme Caramel about 2 years ago, and I knew when I saw him temper the eggs, he was a natural. I can't wait to get this cookbook for him. As a teenager, my mother took me to see Elvis Presley in concert. She is no longer with me, but every time I hear his music I can remember how tightly she held my hand before he came on stage. In the years to come, he will see the cookbook and remember all the times he and I were watching Alex together. It's memories like that which, as we become adults, are our soft place to fall when we miss them.
