I love this book. Love the pictures and her writing style. I actually had no idea about some of the sugars she talks about and uses in these recipes. I am excited to try new things instead of the regular brown and white sugars in my baked goods!

As someone who enjoys sweets but avoids processed white sugar, I am so excited about this book. It is helping me to use natural sweeteners in ways I had never even considered. What I love is that while there are some recipes that feel "healthy" (as you might expect!), there are equally as many recipes - if not more - that are decadent and fun. But no matter the type of recipe, I know I can feel good about eating it and serving it to my family.

I am a huge fan of Shauna Sever, have been for years. I got to know her on her blog, and in the past years feel like I've forged a full blown love affair with her books Marshmallow Madness and Pure Vanilla. Real Sweet is no exception. Don't go into this thinking the use of natural sugars means this is health food... it isn't, which makes me love it more. Real Sweet DOES use natural sugars, but in inventive and delicious "real dessert" ways. Not only have a gained a better understanding of alternative ways to sweeten desserts, but I can't wait to start experimenting on my own! I've already made 2 recipes from the book with great success using turbinado sugar, and I have some Muscavado sugar on it's way. I can't wait to start baking with it! The idea of using less processed more natural sweeteners is intriguing, especially if it adds more flavor. A must for any baker!

I have been looking for a book that will help me cut down on sugar when making desserts and cakes. This book has a lot of great ideas on how to do it. I have not made any of the recipes yet, so I don't know how well they will turn out, but if they do, I will be using it a lot.

This has some great recipes and good info on sweeteners. I do not cook with refined sugar, and when we do splurge on something sweet, I make it at home. I have loved everything I've made so far, and I highly recommend this book if you like to cook with alternatives to white sugar. It's one of the best I've found so far.

A new dimension in desserts! Love her explanations of the various kinds of sugars and what kind of nutrients they provide. She also convinced me that she is a bona fide sweet tooth person--no "health food" tasting cardboard cookies for her, so her flavors are truly a treat and most ingredients are easily found. Why did we ever us white processed sugar??

I have made a few recipes and 2 out of 3 turned out great. I appreciate the swap for less refined sugars. I'm regularly using turbinado now in place of white sugar. The recipes serve fewer people than the original versions. And at times you may be putting forth extra effort with not quite the return. But overall I do like it and look forward to making more recipes.
