When love-starved lesbians decide to make up for lost time, the recipe is romance. And with Karin Kallmaker cooking, you know the result will be hot, spicy and mouth-wateringly delicious!
Master Chef Jamie Onassis has used every penny she has to buy a beautiful country inn she plans to turn into a five-star restaurant. Unfortunately, the inn turns out to be a “handyman’s special” and, without the skills or capital to make the necessary repairs, Jamie risks losing everything.
Home and garden expert Valkyrie Valentine is a rising star among the do-it-yourself set. A seemingly perfect homemaker, Valkyrie seems destined to become the next Martha Stewart – as long as no one discovers her embarrassing little secret: she can’t cook.
Jamie desperately agrees to Val’s wild proposition: she’ll fix the inn if Jamie will help her fake being a dream chef for a holiday weekend hosting magazine executives. It’s just one short weekend and not all that big a lie. What could go wrong?
Delicious recipes and chocolate-as-sublimation await the reader in Karin Kallmaker’s uproarious farce of cooking that doesn’t stay in the kitchen.
Fans of Making Up for Lost Time won’t want to miss the follow-up short stories (and more recipes!) in “Hacksaw Pastry” in Frosting on the Cake 1: The Original and “Happy New Year Too” in Frosting on the Cake 2: Second Helpings.
