I was recently given the opportunity to review actress Linda Evan's new autobiography, Recipes For Life: My Memories.
I was fascinated by this memoir in that it isn't just a book of one woman reminiscing about her past - Linda tells wonderful stories about her incredible life, and also shares recipes that are called to mind with these stories. And written in her unique voice, reading the book is almost like sitting down with this elegant lady and chatting over coffee. And she has had a wonderfully amazing life. From her first acting days as "Audra" in "Big Valley to her memorable role as "Krystal Carrington" on "Dynasty," Linda shares little known stories about life in Hollywood. She is also very candid about her personal life.
"Recipes For Life" would be a great gift for any fan, and for cookbook lovers as well.
Linda's publicist recently sent me an email with this following recipe to share with my readers. I hope you'll find this as mouth-watering as I did!
By Linda Evans,
Author of Recipes For Life: My Memories
1 cup heavy cream
2 egg yolks
½ cup powdered sugar, plus a few tablespoons extra for dusting
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1½ tablespoons Chambord (or raspberry-flavored) liqueur
Divide the berries among 8 (4-ounce) oven-proof ramekins (or 6 (6-ounce) ramekins).
Sprinkle a little liqueur over each ramekin. Pour the custard mixture over the fruit in each dish and place the dishes on a baking sheet in the oven. Bake 3 minutes.
I received a review copy of this book from the publicist, Leyane at FSB Associates. I was not compensated for my opinion.
