Having fun with Erin Hicks Miller...

Tonight I got to spend some time with the amazing Erin Hicks Miller, author of Houston Classic Desserts. Her book signing and release party was held at Arturo's Uptown Italiano Restaurant in the Post Oak section of Houston, TX.

The desserts made their grand entrance and I was mesmerized. In the picture to the left you see the mini Fresh Pear Bundt Cakes from Dacapo's in the Heights, Fluffernuters by Rebecca Mason and Pecan Pralines from Molina's Cantina.

I also sampled the mini Blueberry Tart by Mark's, White Chocolate Bread Pudding from Ruggles Grill (my favorite), Crema Catalana from Arturo's Uptown Italiano, Creole Bread Pudding with Rye Whiskey Sauce from Brennan's and finally the Tres Leches Cake from El Tiempo Cantina.

These desserts were created by Houston's favorite chefs and the city's most celebrated kitchens. This book is a great gift for the holidays and a must for anyone who loves to bake. Everything I tried was wonderful and worth investgating one recipe at a time.
