Triple Chocolate Cranberry Muffins and Tate’s Bake Shop Cookie & Bar Tower Giveaway

Tate’s Bake Shop Cookbook: Baking for Friends For the past month, I had received a preview copy of Tate’s Bake Shop Cookbook: Baking for Friends by Kathleen King, from Ms. King’s team. (If you can recall, I visited this charming bakery that has many delicious baked goods in Southampton, Long Island last year).

Pierre Hermé fanatics (like me) and home bakers who want to get a taste of Hermé’s genius or want to get a vivid reminder of eating his divine pastries from his boutiques in Paris, London or Tokyo,..
