Holland, whose blog (lickthebowlgood.blogspot.com) shares a title with this debut, started sharing recipes as a way to cope with family tragedy. Her collection of heirloom and favorite desserts includes cakes, cookies, bars, pies, puddings, and more and features an attractive layout with full-page color photographs. Vanilla bean pound cake, oatmeal cream pies, Lick-the-Bowl-Brownies, and other dishes mostly fail to deliver the promised "twist," but a few, such as a stunning banana pudding cheesecake, succeed. VERDICT Recommended for readers interested in family-friendly recipes with subtle variations in flavor and presentation.
