    Truly Dissapointed...

    I was intrigued with the cover and although I had never heard of Carole Bloom I decided to give the book a try. In addition, while skimming through the recipes at the store, they seemed well written and I liked the suggestions of fine ingredients. Well, I should have stuck to my instinct and not purchased the book, due to the fact that I had never heard of the author. Not that I shy away from a book just because the author seems non-existent...her bio in the book sold me as well. I tried four recipes and all of them truly a disaster! I consider myself a intermediate baker and currently attending culinary school. The recipes that did have illustrations looked scrumptious, but all lacked "exciting" flavors and textures. The ones that did not have illustrations, where difficult to assume how they should appear as the writer did not give some sense of detail? The only credit that I can truly appreciate is how she does have suggestions for keeping the baked goods and alterations to change the flavors of the recipes. Overall, keep the $24.95 plus tax and do additional research on the internet before buying a cook book!! Or just ask your Culinary instructor before buying a book...he gave me the " too bad"

    Fabulous Dessert Book - Very Timely

    I read a previous review of this book and I was very surprised that someone was disappointed with Carole's work. She has written several dessert cookbooks and I have found them all to be excellent and I think Bite-Size may be the best of all. The recipes in Bite-Size Desserts are written clearly and simply, they are totally accurate, and there is a very large variety of recipes (with some very creative ones). My favorites so far are the Pear and Triple Ginger Cobblers and the Sea Salted Peanut Brittle (which went real fast around my house). And I really like the mini sized desserts aspect of this book. It is not only good for portion control, as Carole puts it, but it's neat to create several mini desserts for family and friends. This is what I am going to do for my holiday company, make a variety of Bite-Size desserts. Also, I have noticed that many restaurants are creating these mini desserts-even Starbucks. So Carole is right on target with this book. As I said, I think this is going to be my favorite all time dessert cookbook.
