    I bought two copies of your book. One for me to drool over and one to donate to our local Celiac support group. I also requested that our local library buy a copy. There is a large Celiac population in the area and the gluten-free cooking section gets a lot of use. Hope you don’t mind.

    Oh my goodness Amy, my mouth is watering! Figs are my absolute favorite, and always a romantic addition to a meal. I love your idea of pairing it with cheese! Definitely on the menu for this long weekend – thanks!!

    Also, I will definitely post a review once I get my copy of your book – can’t wait to see the finished product :)

    This sounds delicious! We love doing meals like this, so the cake would be a perfect compliment to our small plate dinners!

    Oh yum, this cake looks heavenly. I miss fig newtons, this would be the perfect substitute.

    My copy was a Christmas gift, and I’m waiting for it to arrive. Maybe it will get here today! But, then I’ll have to wait until next week to make something.

    I’m really looking forward to using your book as I am trying to cut back on sugar in our diet. We don’t eat a lot of sugar laden food, but I want to ease it out of the other stuff as well. I want sugar to be like it used to be, a true treat! Not something that is expected every day.

    This sounds so lovely. Not too sweet, and so satisfying. Especially with salami and cheese!

    I love the looks of this cake Amy. And it seems to simple! My Dad LOVES fig newtons but doesn’t eat them anymore (we don’t let him!). He’d probably love this cake.

    I love black mission figs. I keep a bag of them in the fridge for a quick snack. This looks so easy!

    Yum! This looks fantastic! I wonder how it would taste if you mixed in other mushy-esque dried fruits like dates or apricots? I’ll have to try this sometime!

    @Christine: look up Panforte Nero (the Italian version of Amy’s recipe) and omit the extra honey and flour. You need a good aged cheese to balance the sweetness of the figs (figs are little sugar&seed bombs!) and with some hard salami… oh. yum. I haven’t done this meal since the fall. Perhaps I sould rectify that as soon as I can have dairy again.
