Should one of your 2014 resolutions involve honing your baking skills, check out the site Baking with Betsy. I can vouch for Betsy's pastry talents as I've had the good fortune of being on the receiving end of her scrumptious baked goods. Not only is she a Paris trained pastry chef, she's a witty writer and gifted instructor. She was also my Ithaca College roommate and sidekick. More importantly, Betsy baked an incredible chocolate ruffle cake for my wedding which she transported from Connecticut to New Jersey. I returned the favor, baking her wedding cake and driving the three tiers oh-so-carefully from Philadelphia to Connecticut. In our old age, I suspect we will still be reminiscing about Sophomore Review, our lack of skill in both ballet and tap dance, and discussing in great detail our favorite pie recipes. Happy New Year, Bets.
