Cruddy by Lynda Barry

LilyRose, March 1, 2010

It is an excellent book, but I had to stop reading it late at night. It was giving me nightmares, and I am not sure why - maybe because everything was just so darn cruddy.

Rustic Fruit Desserts: Crumbles, Buckles, Cobblers, Pandowdies, and More by Cory Schreiber and Julie Richardson
Rustic Fruit Desserts: Crumbles, Buckles, Cobblers, Pandowdies, and More

LilyRose, April 27, 2009

I can tell that this cookbook is quickly going to become the first cookbook I grab when I need to make a quick, but beautiful and
delicious dessert. I have only had time to try one recipe, but it was
superb and my guests loved it. I just bought another copy of the book
for my sister. I appreciated the tips about fruit storage, freezing
desserts and the descriptions of different types of desserts (for
example, the difference between a slump and a pandowdy). I also liked that I did not have to use a lot of fancy kitchen gadgets, that I
would end up having to wash.

I freeze a lot of berries during the summer, and it would have been
helpful if the recipes which indicated that fresh or frozen berries
could be used, also specified whether the frozen berries should be
thawed, and if so, whether the thawed berries should be drained.
Otherwise, I find this an outstanding cookbook. I loved the beautiful
photographs and easily written recipes. Both of the authors have excellent reputations, so I have no doubt that these are the finest of recipes. Well worth the price - I can't wait to try more of the recipes.
