Pikesville resident Konya Lindsey learned a love of baking from family in California. She migrated to Baltimore for grad school and worked in marketing before starting a dessert catering business, SugarPlum Confections, in 2007. But even before that, the 32-year-old was thinking about compiling her recipes. "I really wanted to write a cookbook that spoke to people who have trepidations about baking," she says. And she did just that. Delicious Desserts to Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth walks anxious bakers through each step of a recipe. It's available at sugarplum-confections.com for $32.99 (paperback) and $42.99 (hardcover).
