(photo by Ben Fink)

This is Rose Levy Beranbaum. She is baking extraordinaire. She has been called "Diva of Desserts." I mean, who wouldn't want to know her? Her friendly smile alone wins me over.  She has been guest stars on the shows: The Food Network, The Today Show, and Martha Stewart. Her recipe books include:

 Rose's Heavenly Cakes (2009) (her newest!!)
The Bread Bible (2003)
The Pie and Pastry Bible (1998)
Rose's Melting Pot (1993)
Rose's Celebrations (1992)
Rose's Christmas Cookies (1990)
A Passion for Chocolate (1989)
The Cake Bible (1988)
Romantic & Classic Cakes (1981)

I have had the opportunity to review her lastest book "Rose's Heavenly Cakes." Let me tell you. It is so good, I almost want to eat the book. Rose has even emailed me, and she is just so nice and personable. There are a variety of recipes in there ranging from beginner, intermediate, and to advanced. What I also loved about the book, how it is almost as if Rose if there talking to you.
Love it Rose, I'm sold!
