If you're craving a little baking with the holidays on the horizon, Zoe Nathan will inspire you with her new cookbook. It's called "Huckleberry: Stories, Secrets, and Recipes From Our Kitchen."

"Our Kitchen" refers to Nathan's kitchen at the popular Huckleberry Cafe in Santa Monica, California. That's where Take Two host Alex Cohen caught up with her recently, whipping up her drool-worthy menu of down-home American pastries.

How do salted caramel squares sound? And, what holiday spread would be complete without the perfect apple pie? Craving savory instead? How about a brisket hash for Thanksgiving dinner this year?

Whatever you covet, there's one thing Zoe Nathan says she wants you to see when you visit Huckleberry bakery -- the perfection of the imperfect.
