Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In this copious collection of homemade favorites, Wisconsin moms Louise and Koopmann make good on their belief that "a good meal deserves a good dessert." Organized by month, the duo offer more than 250 ideas that take advantage of seasonal ingredients: lemon squares in August, stuffed baked apples in October, and five ideas for rhubarb (pie, cake, torte, cobbler and mousse) to get families through May. Those with little confidence or experience will get the most out of the book; many recipes call for canned fillings and boxed mixes (Cakes in a Jar" calls for just two ingredients, cake mix and canning jars). Still, those interested in making their own cannolli shells or pate choux for eclairs (here called Puff Pastry for Cream Puffs) will find faithful recipes. The focus is on family favorites that can be whipped up on a whim or a weekend; comfort food desserts like Swedish Cardamom Cookies, a simple no-bake cheesecake, and Neil's Popcorn Balls (incorporating M&Ms, peanuts, popcorn, melted marshmallows and butter) aren't likely to win any culinary prizes, but they will certainly make for warm family memories-a fine prize for any chef.

A true Wisconsinite, she can be found on Sunday afternoons watching the latest Green Bay Packers football game.

Delectable Desserts by Wendy Louise and Mary Ann Koopmann is a delightful cookbook of yummy-sounding desserts. I never learned to bake as a child and never really had the desire to learn. So I ordered this book for my daughter-in-law who loves to cook and whose cooking skills are off-the charts. However, when the book arrived, I was captivated by the beautiful, mouth-watering cover and the luscious recipes inside. I like the way the recipes are grouped by month--ensuring that any fruit used is in season. And I was intrigued by the recipes themselves Fruit Grunt, Cheese Squares, Wild Rice Harvest Cake. Cake made from rice...who knew? I thought how much fun it would be for me to try to make a few simple desserts and surprise everyone. I think I just might have to keep this book for myself and order another one for my daughter-in-law!

In our household I do the cooking and my wife does the baking. I got Delectable Desserts for my wife as a gift knowing that I would benefit from it at least as much as she would - like a power tool, but more subtle. Well, neither of us have been disappointed with the recipes. Homemade chocolate eclairs, cannolis, cupcakes, the list goes on! Yummy!!! I can almost hear myself gaining weight! I highly recommend for dessert enthusiasts.

Another Reviewer Called this book boring because there is no pictures. True, it would have been better with pictures. Still, it has one of the best recipes for both beginners and experienced bakers. Truly delectable desserts. If you're looking for substance and don't mind the lack of highly glossed pictures and fluff..you will like this book. Borrow it from your local library if you're not sure.

This book has really delectable dessert recipes with no doubt but each page presents one different recipe and any single photo! ok, you can say that doesn't say if it is a good or a bad book and you are right about that but after several pages with any clue on how it looks like, I found it boring and with no motivation to make so many recipes without knowing how it looks like in the end!

If you are searching for a recipe in particular, you surely will find it but if you are just searching for an idea you will give up!
