The Buzz: The Brown Betty Cookbook

October 17, 2012 [BROWN BETTY 5P-PKG AVI] [Notes:she is referring to the woman at 7:42] [L3 -- /Norrinda Brown Hayat/ BROWN BETTY DESSERT BOUTIQUE]

She was an original domestic goddess. She worked, she did church, social clubs cooked every night, and she baked.

These are the recipes born in Grandma Betty's West Philadelphia kitchen: The Apple Brown Betty; The Sweet Potato Pot; The Sour Cream Pound Cake is one of the signatures.

Today Betty's daughter Linda and her daughter Norrinda are sharing those scented memories, the sweet moments savored in their family with yours through two colorful confectionary boutiques in Center City and Northern Liberties... and now in a brand new cookbook

A now booming small business born from Linda's homemade, handcrafted goodies ("Instead of giving store bought gifts, I would bake," says Linda Hinton Brown), their dessert boutiques and the book celebrate the entire family's ladies in baking.

Like Aunt Eva and her pineapple pound cake and dear Ruth's famous chocolate sour cream cake.
