Meet the Author, on Comcast and Verizon

Huge thanks to Paula Mooney, Amanda Olsen and Jonathan Aronoff at Hometowne TV for the “Meet the Author” segment they did on my book, Sweet Survival: Tales of Cooking & Coping, published by Greenpoint Press. That’s our dog Roxy barking in the background, waiting for food to fall. Hometowne TV is on Comcast channel 36 and Verizon channel 33. The recipes are all in the book. We had a lot of fun filming and then eating the props.

Studies show that, by the time kids reach the legal drinking age of 21, there’s an 86 percent chance they’ve already had alcohol. And while some teens have to sneak it or even steal it, others are being served by the people you’d least expect — their parents.

With spring break wrapping up and prom season under way, teen drinking is a hot topic of conversation.

Each year, nearly 200,000 underage drinkers visit emergency rooms due to alcohol-related incidents. And that’s leading some parents to begin alcohol education at home.

“Early Show” contributor Taryn Winter Brill reported some parents, such as Laura Zinn Fromm, have begun allowing their kids to imbibe.

Writing is less fattening. The recipe for this flourless chocolate cake is on the Simmer site and on page 264 of my book, Sweet Survival: Tales of Cooking & Coping, published by Greenpoint Press.
