Another problem is that after 40 years the level of testosterone production by the testicles begins to fall. Testosterone supports the health of the cardiovascular system, muscle mass, bone density and body tone. Animal studies have shown that low testosterone levels affect penile tissue.

GLUTEN-FREE WHITE CHOCOLATE PEPPERMINT MOCHA BROWNIES

One of the best things about blogging is the people you meet who become lifelong friends; and when those friends are talented bakers, they write beautiful cookbooks and send a copy to you. Such is the case with Marbled, Swirled, and Layered written by our very good friend Irvin Lin of the wildly popular blog, Eat the Love.

Irvin is a passionate baker with a love of all things pastry and who also happens to have a gift for pairing traditional flavors with unusual combinations; they create multilayered desserts you might not have considered: Seville Orange Bars with Salted Shortbread and Gin Meringue (Gin Meringue!) or regional recipes such as Butterscotch Whoopie Pies with Apple-Cream Cheese Filling. His cover recipe, Marshmallow-Filled Chocolate Cake is a spin on one of my childhood favorites – the Hostess Cupcake – complete with swirled icing on top.

I’ve been a gluten-free baker for the past 6-years and even though this isn’t a gluten-free book, the recipes can be converted with success so there’s no need to feel left out at any type of celebration. There are also recipe hacks which give a traditional recipe that special ‘sumpin’-sumpin’, such as adding bourbon or spiced rum to a pie crust (Apple-Blackberry Tarte Tatin anyone?).

I have several pages flagged for recipes to bake in 2017 but one of my seasonal favorites is Irvin’s take on the humble brownie; I’m pretty sure we can all agree on our love of brownies but topped with Salted Caramel popcorn? Sublime. But wait  . . . he also gives a few alternatives including one for Candied Peppermint Popcorn Mocha Brownies; so good in fact, that the recipe landed in Oprah’s December issue . . . yes, the Oprah.

I made mine gluten-free and switched it up yet again: white chocolate ganache popcorn, laced with crushed peppermint candy. We shared leftovers (who has leftover brownies??!!!) with The Professor’s students and they were a huge hit!

If you’re a baker, even a gluten-free baker, you need Marbled, Swirled, and Layered on your shelves – it’s a beautiful book – and one you’ll bake from again and again.
