We've named these Lemon Cream Cheese Squares from Baking With The Brass Sisters Central Squares in honor of Central Square, in Cambridge where Marilynn first lived at the YWCA.
There is nothing we like better than hearing from you about your experiences with the recipes we have tested and presented. We love meeting with you in airports and sharing the recipe for an oatmeal or butter cookie, or having you explain the best way to make your grandmother's Sand Tarts.
It’s been a great summer, and we’re looking forward to fall!
We had a great time at The Readable Feast Cookbook Festival at the Boston Public Market, and we enjoyed demonstrating our recipe for Brown Sugar Brownies as S’Mores at the Taste Of Cambridge.
Things are falling into place for our calendar for September through November, and we’re looking forward to doing the WGBH Food & Wine Festival on September 18. We’re going to be part of the Brunch Event, wait until you see what we’re going to be baking!Read More
Last Sunday we appeared on the QVC Network on In The Kitchen With David. Since David Venable was doing a later show, Jane Treacy was our host.
The Brass Sisters enjoyed their salon appointments with Nelta, who performed miracles.
Everyone at QVC was wonderful and welcoming, and the recipes they baked from Baking With The Brass Sisters were beautifully styled.
After we did our eight-minute segment, the hosts and the crew applauded.
Appearing on QVC was a wonderful experience.

He died eating chocolate ice cream and watching the Red Sox win. His battle with colon cancer was not as bad as we had feared. He died at the New England Medical Center where he had been Director of Pharmacy for 23 years. He died at 70, too young, but he left us a great moral legacy.Read More
