Baker extraordinaire Abby Dodge is in town this weekend, and Zoe Francois had a little get together at her house to welcome her and celebrate her latest book, The Everyday Baker, which just won both a James Beard Award and an IACP award. We hung out on Zoe’s fabulous porch all afternoon, and spent lots of time laughing and eating treats made from Abby’s book.

I also snapped this photo of Abby taking a peek at my book (I have a black and white preview copy), but I can’t quite show you the cover yet, which is why the smiley face is over it. I’ll show you soon!

The recipe for the Salted Caramel-Toffee Ice Box Cake pictured is over on Bakepedia.

The cold press pictured is from True Stone Coffee Roasters, a local roaster that we used when I worked at Bordertown Coffee. It was so dang good.

    Looks like an amazing celebration! Love that it took place on the porch which is something that reminds me so much of growing up in a small town, but you don’t see it nearly enough around here. Look forward to seeing your book when you can share 🙂
