Food writer Amanda Hesser talks with NPR's Melissa Block about her new collection of essays and recipes, Cooking for Mr. Latte. The book charts a savory romance with the man who became her husband. Hesser provides npr.org with recipes for an entire meal — including the "dump-it" cake heard on All Things Considered.
