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.

“There is nothing more fun than entertaining children.  They make the best guests!  Pick any sweet treat from Courtney’s book and dazzle the little guests and adults alike!” – Kimberly Schlegel Whitman, Editor-At-Large of Southern Living
