Let Them Eat Cake! Author Launches New Book


Phoenixville, Pennsylvania Oct 18, 2023 (Issuewire.com) – Friends and family gathered Sunday at The Clubhouse, West Side Apartments, Phoenixville for local author, Janice O’Brien’s book launch. The author read excerpts from her book, Eating My Way Through Life, Family Stories of Talented Cooks & Tasty Food, and then signed copies.

Guests were treated to scrumptious chocolate chip cookies, O’Brien’s favorite, baked by Supernatural Sweetz, Phoenixville. Guests took home a boxed slice of Reba’s Coffee Cake. O’Brien writes that the recipe was the most celebrated in her family’s arsenal of favorites, included in the book.

O’Brien’s family were foodies long before the term came into our vernacular. From the moment she devoured a shrimp cocktail served with horseradish sauce, delectable food played a prominent role in her life. This collection of stories is about a family where food was a priority and the common denominator that united them. Growing up in the 1950s and 60s, O’Brien’s family spent Sundays together, and her mother cooked and baked everything from scratch. She followed in her family’s footsteps and became a talented cook, trying new recipes, loving to bake, and hosting guests, just like her ancestors.
