Chef Alex Guarnaschelli has a new cookbook out that will revitalize your cooking repertoire. With favorites from her restaurants, childhood and home kitchen, The Home Cook, this is a friendly, accessible volume that will point you in the right direction. Try this orange walnut bundt cake on for size, it just might be your new favorite dessert for a crowd.  

I love assembling this cake: filling the pan with some of the batter, spooning in a hidden ring of marmalade, and covering it gingerly with the remaining batter. This cake can be served as is or with a simple glaze for a brunch. Or it can be topped with a buttercream or dark chocolate ganache and become dessert for a dinner party.
