Penny has been cooking for nearly all of her life. Constant experimentation and a deep knowledge of food are the hallmarks of her kitchen. She is a nutritionist and advocate of healthful eating — most of the time. But when it’s time for a dessert, it’s time for DESSERT. Penny is unofficially obsessed with the perfect cake. Just keep it a treat, not an every day habit, and all will be well for both palate and health. These recipes are dedicated to her children, Calvin and Lucy, who will one day create their own special recipes while keeping the tradition of hospitality alive.
