First things first as I wrote in the disclaimer at the top "I received this book from Blogging for Books for free in exchange only for an honest unbiased review." I have never been much of a chef, but I do know my way around basic baking like cakes cookies, and cupcakes at long as they were not anything fancy. I chose to review this book because I wanted to try and make some new desserts and the book seemed like it was straight forward and nothing too complicated. WOW was I right this book has 50 recipes and none of them look too difficult for me. My favorite recipe so far is the home made vanilla marshmallows. They taste really good and they were not too difficult to make in fact everything was pretty simply.
The book is very well written, everything is written in a way that is very easy to understand. The pictures next to all the recipes provide a nice helper for the chef as it helps to know what you are making should look like.
Overall the book is well written and easy to understand. The book would be great for anyone looking to create some tasty new desserts. It would make a great gift for any baker. It would also make a good gift for a teen baker as most of the recipes would be easy for a teen to make at long as they are allowed to use the oven and boil water.
