    A trove of classic recipes from the New York Times bestselling novelist Eileen Goudge One of six children, Eileen Goudge learned to bake at an early age, inspired by her mother, who made everything from scratch and baked all her own bread. She has fond memories of the banana cake, apple crisp, and baked Alaska she loved as a child, and many of her novels feature temptations in the form of sweets, from the fine chocolates of Such Devoted Sisters to the icebox cookies of One Last Dance. In this volume, Goudge collects the best of her mother’s recipes, adds some of her own, and includes a few from friends and readers. She tells the story of each dish in mouthwatering detail, giving glimpses of her childhood and noting which treats are best for picnics, parties, and other special occasions. These are not difficult recipes, but they are brilliant, and each one is designed to soothe the soul as well as please the palate. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Eileen Goudge including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.

Editorial Reviews

  • “A cookbook filled with things like peaches and cream cake, banana streusel coffee cake, and chilled mango pudding with pineapple rum sauce is sure to help create some more of those warm memories.” —Memphis Flyer “Eileen Goudge knows her way around a sentence. She’s pretty handy with a spoon, too, as her newest tome, Something Warm from the Oven, aptly demonstrates.” —New York Daily News “[Speaks] to the soulful heart of baking.” —The Boston Globe
