One of my passions is collecting cookbooks, and since I have a notorious sweet tooth, I especially love books that focus on desserts! I also love exploring raw meals, and Amber's first cookbook Practically Raw: Flexible Raw Recipes Anyone Can Make is one of my absolute favorites. When I saw that she was coming out with a dessert book, I eagerly pre-ordered it -- and am definitely not disappointed!

Once of the things I love about this book (and Amber's previous one) is that she takes the time to educate you about certain ingredients -- what's good/nutritious about them and how they work in a recipe. She includes tables to help you determine things like how long to soak various kinds of nuts, and explains things like the difference between coconut oil and coconut butter.

After the introductory section, the first chapter focuses on how to make your own milks, butters, flours, and syrups. There are some seriously fantastic photos in here -- including a five-sequence shot of the inside of a food processor to show you what your nut butter consistency should be like.

What is also outstanding is how Amber gives ingredient substitution lists for most of the recipes, as well as instructions for how to make some of the items in an oven if you don't have a food dehydrator (which I don't). The substitution list is especially helpful if you have a hard time finding certain ingredients in your area.

Another great thing is that this book purposefully uses ingredients that you most likely already have on hand if you're using raw cookbooks.

"Where to start?" That's exactly what I said after receiving and reading this book!
Amber has put so much information in this book and being new to eating raw...or healthy, I really appreciate the way she makes it so easy for me. In this book she is showing me/us how to make our own milks, butters & flours, not only in type but also with incredible pictures! So much to choose from!
And the recipes...cookies, bars, brownies, cakes, pies, candies, sauces....OMG! There are so many to choose from and with my sweet-tooth I may be in trouble!
I not only like how yummy the recipes sound and look but I also like that if I don't have what is called for in the recipe Amber helped out by giving us several alternatives we could use instead! Talk about making it easy on you! I've never seen that in any other cookbook and you know we all run out of things, try to make a recipe and say "Oh no" when it comes to that ingredient that you forgot to replace at the store. Now I know what alternative will work best and I don't have to stop in the middle of making something to run to the store! I think the only way she could have made it any easier for us is for her to have come with the book! LOL
The first recipe I went for was the Coconut Butter Fudge! Oh yeah! That is good! The only thing I did different was instead of cutting them into 9 pieces I cut them into 18...now I can have two and not feel guilty! Heehee, like I would really feel guilty...nothing in them to feel guilty about!
And that is another thing...growing up my sweet-tooth was fed sugar laden goodies..the more sugary goodies you eat the more you want...never a good thing! With these recipes the sweetness come's in a healtier form...dates, coconut nectar, fruit, maple syrup...

French silk pie for under 300 calories a slice? Is this real life?! I am so obsessed with this cookbook, because I can finally indulge my sweet tooth without straying from my healthy diet! This book sticks with the easy-to-follow format of Practically Raw, giving the reader options for baking or using a dehydrator for many recipes. When I received it, I was surprised at how many of the basic ingredients I already have on hand. Amber keeps things simple, but always delicious! From ice creams to cakes, there is something for every tastebud in this book, and you'll be introduced to a few new healthy ingredients along the way (for me - coconut flour). I highly recommend this book to anyone like me who loves dessert but doesn't want to pack on the pounds! Check out her first book, Practically Raw: Flexible Raw Recipes Anyone Can Make, for tons of savory options. Both of them have really helped me stay on track with my health and weight.

I am IN LOVE with both of Chef Amber's books, but am particularly pleased with the variety, versatility, and ease of the recipes in the dessert book. I am a mother of a 3 year old and a 3 month old and yet have found no problem in my day to find time to whip up some delish treats from the book. It's a life saver to me as a self-proclaimed chocoholic who had to go 100% dairy free when I realized my baby was sensitive to it in my breastmilk. Even better, my toddler LOVES every dessert I've made so far which means more good ingredients going into her little body instead of artificial, chemical, sugary junk.
Thank you Chef Amber for making both books so easy and welcoming to the world of raw food! It has truly turned around my health and gives me joy to be in the kitchen each day!
