Modesty almost prevents me from posting this article from yesterday's Star-Ledger, but practicality won out. Thanks to Suzanne Lowery, a fine cooking teacher herself, you'll learn more than you ever wanted to know about me. If you are up for it, keep reading for the link.
And they said it couldn't be done! Sarabeth Levine, the Goddess of Bakedom, and I have been working on her master tome for over ten years. (OK, we did take a break somewhere in there...)
