This is a beautiful cookbook with beautiful photography, and probably my favorite of 2013. The idea of building a cookbook around winter ingredients for baked goods is brilliant and much appreciated. There are chapters on nuts and squashes and citrus, to name a few.

Both recipes I tried were not dishes I had seen in other cookbooks, and had interesting flavor profiles. I made the butternut squash cake twice!

Butternut squash cake:

Cocoa Pomegranate Pavlova (I couldn't resist the striking color in this dish and the added ingredients of balsamic and cardamom made for a very sophisticated bite.)

Judy Oooo...I just want to reach into that picture you posted and take a bite of that Pomegranate Pavlova. It is almost cruel to post that picture, Jenny! *grin*

Cath Your review makes me even more impatient! :)
