My precious friend, Marsha Baker, has published her first cookbook. Here's the way she was introduced to me a decade ago during one of my speaking events: This is Marsha...she's a good cook, but a BETTER BAKER! Well, Marsha "good cook, better" Baker certainly lives up to her name and shares some of her fabulous recipes in this first collection of family favorites.

These recipes (300 of them) are family-friendly, using ingredients most will have on hand.There are also many tips and tricks to help make life easier for you in the kitchen.

Marsha's special touch permeates the collection through favorite personal and family childhood recollections. She also added recipe notes so she can be her usual 'chatty self'...and there are inspirational quotes, too.
(Like....'a single man is incomplete...once he's married, he's finished')
