    I love this book!

    I borrowed this book from a friend to get some ideas. Well, after trying a few recipes, I was hooked and went to buy my own copy. I now find myself letting my son pick out the "desserts" and making them, they are so simple! It is a great feeling (for those who don't normally cook, like me) to have your family love the dishes!

    Excellent Desert book

    One of the best purchases for my cookbook collection. I use this book at least once a week to make cookies or cakes. It's the best.

    You can't go wrong!

    I got this book from my sister when I went to visit her. She had just bought it. We made a few of the recipes while I visited and they were incredible. I was then hooked and she gave it to me to bring home and got herself a new one. I have had parties since then and everyone loves the desserts from this book. My husband has never really liked cake but he raves about these recipes. Everyone wants to know where they can get the recipe. It is soo very yummy.

    The best book on my shelf!

    This was the best find ever! Quick, simple, no-brainer deserts. With all the cookie parties out there, these are the best and fastest way to get there with great tasting cookies to share. No one believes it when I tell them they were made from a cake mix. Stephanie, keep them coming. I have even added a few of my own ideas and they work out great. This make's a great gift as well!

    What a fun book!

    I leave my copy out on my coffee table. Some days I contemplate chaining it there so my friends won't take it with them when they leave! I have decided to make it my birthday gift for the year to all my friends. Each one gets a copy of this book, a cake mix and a wooden spoon. My friends are already bringing ¿ME¿ delicious tastes!
