Library Journal

Adler, accountant-turned- owner of Sweet Debbie's Organic Cupcakes, has written a cookbook filled with recipes from her Los Angeles bakery. Adler describes common staples found in her bakery and where they can be purchased (a detailed list is available in the "Resources" guide), as well as common cooking techniques, such as how readers can make their own gluten-free flour and seed butters from scratch. One chapter is devoted to savories, but this book is primarily concerned with satisfying one's sweet tooth, with chapters on muffins, brownies, cookies, cupcakes, bars, and donuts. Adler highlights sensible advice on the nutritional properties of ingredients such as coconut, sunflower seeds, and turmeric, with relentlessly perky prose ("Get ready for your closeup, Miss Seedy, because you have the lead role in this jelly roll"). Each recipe is accompanied by gorgeous color photographs and nutritional information per serving. This title's spiral binding will make readers wish all how-to books were designed this way. VERDICT A cookbook that will fill an admittedly small niche but one with an enthusiastic following. Recommended for readers looking to bake without allergens, gluten, or dairy products.—Mary Schons, Hammond P.L., IN
