I have to admit, when I was given the opportunity to review this cookbook, it was a no-brainer, I mean, who doesn't like desserts, right? But I was a little worried, because most cookbooks I receive don't end up being something I use--either because they are too gourmet for my tastes, too complicated, or require things I never have around the house. This one is PERFECT! There's a variety of desserts--everything from cookies and brownies to pies and cheesecakes. They have fruity and chocolatey and everything in between. There are movie treats and desserts for formal soirees. Everything you could want. It will take me years to make everything in this book, but I can't wait to try! The recipes are easy and call for ingredients I surprisingly already have around the house. So far, what we've tried have been fabulous, and I'm looking forward to making more. As far as the book itself--the colors and photos are amazing. The layout is intuitive, and the directions are easy to follow. This book is a must-have for any kitchen. *I received a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest review.
(4.5 Stars) For the last little while, I've been trying to eat healthier, but I just can't give up desserts. Whether I have them once a week or every day, my sweet tooth can't be curbed, so when a chance to review this book came up, I jumped on it! I've been following the Six Sisters' blog for a couple of years now and I love how their recipes are simple, yet satisfying. There are many comfort foods, as well as new recipes, and their desserts are some of my favorites. In the mood for cupcakes? This book has got you covered. Bars or brownies? It's got both of them, too. I love how most of the basic dessert categories are covered with a good variety of recipes. From bars, to cookies, to cakes, to ice cream, to cheesecakes, to candies/treats and more, this book is sure to have something to fit your mood or the season. I also loved how tips to share and show your treats are included. I decided to try a few different recipes and was pleased with the results. In fact, my husband wants to ban me from making treats for awhile because they're all oh-so-good. I tried the Nutella Brownies and the recipe was easy to follow. They turned out great and we couldn't get enough! I also made the Chocolate Marshmallow Cookies and they were a hit. The pictures for each recipe are well done and I also enjoy how each recipe gives a serving amount and a prep time, cook time, and total time. My 9-year-old daughter helped me make the Mini Pumpkin Pies and had so much fun with them. They're the perfect serving size for a person. She asked if she could help me make more recipes in this book and went through and found a bunch that she wants to try. There are many, many more that we're all looking forward to making, including the Slow Cooker Nut Clusters, Old Fashioned Vanilla Ice Cream, and Snickers Cupcakes, to name a few. This is a great book with a lot of possibilities. *I received a copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review*
