If you have been reading my blog for awhile, then you know that I love to get in the kitchen and cook with my children. When Courtney of Pizzazzerie (and the brilliant mind behind Push Up Pops) asked me if I would be interested in being a stop on her virtual book tour, I jumped at the chance. I also happen to love making candy, and this book is my two favorite things rolled into one.
