Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Since my mantra is, 'My day isn't complete without something sweet', this book is perfect! Especially because the recipes fit into my Quick Fix lifestyle. Lauren found a way (actually, 100 ways!) to get incredible sweets to the table in just minutes. From kid-winners like Peanut Butter Cup S'Mores and Milk Chocolate Brownie Waffles to adult-pleasing Vanilla Pudding with Bourbon & Golden Raisins and Mini Walnut Layer Cakes with Espresso Cream Filling & Glaze, there's truly something for everyone. --Robin Miller, Food Network host and author of "Quick Fix Meals"
"If you're like me and prefer to have dessert sooner rather than later (alas, life is sweet but short), then Lauren Chattman's "Dessert Express" is the book for you. This superb book is rife with delectations that are quick to prepare and even quicker to disappear." --Marcel Desaulniers, author of "I'm Dreaming of a Chocolate Christmas"
"Real desserts real fast! Talented and clever, Lauren Chattman has created 100 recipes for sweet-lovers of all ages. Each recipe takes 30 minutes or less to go from kitchen to table--the surprise, the bonus, and the sweetest part!" --Dorie Greenspan, author of "Baking from My Home to Yours"
