Great Books that Inform and Inspire

Whether you're starting your holiday shopping this weekend or looking for an uplifting distraction from today's current events, here are some wonderful books to pick up right now!

I get a lot of books, and over the last couple of months, I've received several I know you'll enjoy - beautiful books filled with information, inspiration, and comfort. Among them, "Designing History: The Evolutionary Art & Style of the Obama White House" by Michael Smith, "Life in the Studio: Inspiration and Lessons on Creativity" by Frances Palmer, "Cooking in Marfa: Welcome, We've Been Expecting You" by Virginia Lebermann and Rocky Barnette, and photographed by my dear friend, Douglas Friedman, "Windcliff: A Story of People, Plants, and Gardens" by Dan Hinkley, and "Fruit Cake: Recipes for the Curious Baker" by Jason Schreiber. I love reading books like these - created by such talented individuals who are so passionate in what they do.

Enjoy these photos - and don't forget, my 97th book is in bookstores now - "Cake Perfection: 100+ Recipes for the Sweet Classic, from Simple to Stunning." And at the end of this blog, a surprise peek at my 98th.
