Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Tighten your resolve. There are over 100 recipes in this attractive, best-selling collection, covering everything from pies and cakes to puddings and candies. Engelbreit’s distinctive style embellishes the double-page spreads with old-fashioned looking designs (reminiscent of old oilcloth patterns) supplemented by photos of finished products. The pictures are the only low-calorie parts of the book. Chapters include “Fruit for All Seasons” (ways to love those cherries, pears, apples, berries), “Comforting Crisps and Cobblers” (apple, peach, pear, berry, cherry), “Homey Pies and Elegant Tarts” (with crust tips and a positively stunning cherry pie, as well as several cream pies, pecan pie and lemon chess, with tarts and galette thrown in for balance). Chapter Four is full of “Heavenly Cakes,” with various frostings leading the way into pound cakes, pudding cake, angel food, gingerbread, german chocolate, devil’s food, cheesecake, carrot cake, and even a flourless chocolate soufflé recipe. Then, a chapter on comfort foods that even a Sweet Potato Queen would envy focuses on rice pudding, tapioca pudding, butterscotch pudding, chocolate pudding, bread pudding, crème brulee, trifle, betty, fool, and a mousse. The sixth chapter, “Cooling Off,” features ice cream, sorbet, sherbet, granita, parfait, ice cream pie, ice cream cake, grasshopper pie, fudge sundae, and ultimate chocolate brownies. The book ends with several nice cookie recipes. All recipes are from scratch, with NO calorie-counting of any kind. If you are on a diet, this is the book to read to strengthen your will power or to vicariously enjoy all the pleasures of dessert that will not cross your lips in the real world. Alsoincludes a one-page index. Reviewer: Gwynne Spencer
