Potluck with Judy
Good food plays an important part in our lives and so it's not uncommon to see it in novels, as well. In Castaway Hearts, Catherine bakes a scrumptious apple pie (and later cherry turnovers), which only strengthens Dawson's attraction to her- "the way to a man's heart is through his stomach" though Catherine doesn't do this unintentionally. Raised by her grandmother, she knows the secret ingredient in making any dish divine.
