Author Amy Rogers is a gifted food writer and memoirist. In 'The Best Blueberry Dessert' she writes about her mother preparing the simple yet mouthwateringly delicious dish: "I can still picture her in the kitchen of our little split-level house on Long Island. She's wearing her summer ensemble of white slacks, a sleeveless top, and sunglasses on top of her head, where she's left them after coming home from shopping at the farm stand nearby." I can see the kitchen, the mother and the dainty glasses of blueberries in sour cream and brown sugar, and immediately, I want to rush out and buy blueberries to make the dessert.
The book is full of recipes and remembrances, skillfully interwoven and deliciously tantalizing. This is a book I'll keep and return to time and again, not only for foodie inspiration, but also for pleasurable reading!
