Spring, nay summer, is well and truly here, along with strawberries, rhubarb, and, soon enough, peaches, plums and raspberries. If eating them fresh and by the handful starts to pale, try Love, Bake, Nourish–a baking and sweets book focused on the fresh and natural. The appropriately named Amber Rose has an uncanny knack for shabby-chic and delicious desserts.
If you’re feeling ambitious and generous, work with Annie Rigg to up your confectionary skills. After some time with the candy thermometer and the recipes in Sweet Things, you’ll be delivering home-made candy canes and caramels in time for Christmas.
