    Easy and Delicious

    In Petite Sweets Ojakanga shows us how to make miniature versions of some of the most decadent and sinful desserts and sweets around. From planning the dessert menu and equipment basics to tips on ingredients it's all covered with large full color photos.

    Cooking and baking have always been hit or miss with me. I love to do it but even if I follow the recipe exactly I don't always get the best results. Some of my more memorable dishes have been my Lemon Meringue Soup when trying to make my favorite pie and most recently when following my grandma's light and fluffy gordita recipe I ended up with what my husband called "biscuits with meat". LOL My son even nicknamed me "burner girl" because he was always scraping the burnt parts off his favorite grilled cheese sandwiches.

    Petite Sweets has plenty of easy to follow recipes and for my review I tried the Mini Cream Puffs. There were just a few basic ingredients and I filled mine with vanilla pudding so in no time flat I had a tiny version of one of my favorite treats with almost no mess to clean up afterwards. My cream puffs were light, fluffy, golden brown and perfectly flaky and I actually surprised myself at how good they tasted.

    One major plus is that since I've been dieting I've cut all sweets and goodies out of my diet. With Petite Sweets I was able to satisfy my sweet tooth without all the guilt that I would have had with the full size version.

    In each of the categories below there are many more great recipes that have caught my eye and next up for me will be the Fresh Lime Pies made in mini muffin tins which will be just big enough to satisfy my craving while still being good.

    Petite Sweets Categories
    * Little Cakes
    * Petite Pies and Tarts
    * Fruit and Berry Desserts
    * Mouses and Chilled Desserts
    * Creams, Custards and Frozen Desserts
    * Pastries and Sweets

    Any of the sweet treats found in the book would be the hit of your party and your friends will all think you're a master pastry chef. I highly recommend Petite Sweets for bakers of any skill level because as my family knows I'm not the best cook and my Mini Cream Puffs were a little bit of heaven.
