The All-American Dessert Book by Nancy Baggett
The All-American Dessert Book

Jennifer Kulman, June 20, 2007

Excellent! Just as good as her cookie book. I think the best part about this author's books is the little paragraph she puts in before every recipe. She explains a little bit about where it came from, or why she chose it. You really get the impression that she worked really hard on getting the perfect recipes to make up a really great book.

She also has pretty detailed explanations in the recipe, like exactly how to shape it, or what NOT to do and the reason for it. It's like she does everything she can to help you make the best dessert you can.

And there is a good range of desserts in this book - many that I want to try. This is one of the cookbooks that I pull off my shelf frequently just to browse.

A Map of the World by Jane Hamilton
A Map of the World

Jennifer Kulman, June 18, 2007

I was really looking forward to this book based on the summary. It could have been an excellent book, but it was too drawn out and characters were too unlikeable. I really lost interest mid-way through and had to force myself to continue. I think I would have liked it had been more fast paced, and less of what the characters were thinking about. Pretty boring.

Finding Alice by Melody Carlson
Finding Alice

I liked the style of this book. It starts off with Alice when her schizophrenia develops and is completely written from her state of mind. She tells what's going on in her mind, what the disease is telling her. It's definitely not a heavy read though. Good enough that I would read something by Melody Carlson again.

Cupcakes: From the Cake Mix Doctor by Anne Byrn
Cupcakes: From the Cake Mix Doctor

Jennifer Kulman, June 8, 2007

I checked this out of the library and realized I need to buy it for my own collection! All the cupcakes start with cake mixes (pretty darn convenient) with add in's and decorating instructions.

I see myself making a lot of cupcakes for school birthday's in the coming years and think this book will be invaluable. The only downside is the lack of photos. Boo, hiss! But the clear instructions and multitude of cupcake variations make up for this.

The Perfect Scoop: Ice Creams, Sorbets, Granitas, and Sweet Accompaniments by David Lebovitz
The Perfect Scoop: Ice Creams, Sorbets, Granitas, and Sweet Accompaniments

Jennifer Kulman, May 28, 2007

This is it! Finally, a really good ice cream book. I received the recommendation for this book online, so it's only appropriate that I recommend it online also. So drag out the ice cream maker that you swore you'd use every week - and really start using it!
