As an aside, I got a little snoopy and wandered over to Ms. Peters' blog where I discovered that she isn't a fan of the Oxford comma. Tsk, tsk. I'm not holding it against her because the recipes in her book sound just too delectable!
I spent the afternoon making the above mentioned recipes. They were all fairly simple. I should mention that I'm not super-adept in the kitchen and I'm pretty sure I made mistakes with all four recipes. For example, two of the recipes call for blending certain ingredients together and then merging them with other ingredients. I'm kind of a dump-it-all-in-there-and-then-just-beat-the-heck-out-of-it kind o' gal. DESPITE my bumbling ways, all four turned out looking (and smelling!) delicious. So, I'd say that the recipes are forgiving if you're like me and not a whiz in the baking department. If you ARE a whiz, your results will probably be even better than my spectacular product!
One note on the servings...except for the Cherry Crumble which was accurately described as serving 6, all of the recipes made 8 and could very easily have been stretched to 10.
And, a special note on the Peanut Butter Ganache in the Elvis in a Jar...if someone asked me, "Would you rather be forced to lick this ganache from the beaters while the mixer is still on OR be forced to wash the beaters without licking them at all?" I would have to seriously consider my answer. Seriously. It is SO GOOD!
I'll update again after the party when I've gotten some feedback from others on how these little darlings TASTE!
