Description: Nestled in the heart of midtown New York is a little shop with a big story. Specializing in all-natural Southern baked goods, Donna Bell's Bake Shop is owned by Pauley Perrette, the actress who plays Abby Sciuto on CBS's NCIS, and her two best friends, Darren Greenblatt and Matthew Sandusky.
It all started in 1993, when Pauley met Darren in New York City's Hell's Kitchen, just blocks away from where the shop is currently located. With a shared sense of style, they became fast friends and collaborators and when they decided to open a bake shop in honor of Pauley's beloved late mother, they turned to their good friend Matthew for his leadership in the kitchen.
Featuring recipes for favorites like Buttermilk Biscuits, Peanut Butter Bars, and Banana Pecan Muffins and personal photographs from Pauley, Darren, Matthew, and Donna Bell herself, this is the story of how one fantastic bake shop brings warmth and happiness -- one treat at a time -- to the urban jungle that is New York City.
