5.0 out of 5 stars Hannah does it again!, May 7, 2011
This review is from: Vegan Desserts: Sumptuous Sweets for Every Season (Hardcover)
I first discovered Hannah Kaminsky by means of her Bittersweet blog; and I immediately pre-ordered her last book, My Sweet Vegan: passionate about dessert without reading a single review. Her blog recipes are just that good! I have always found her recipes to be well written and straightforward and suitable for any cooking ability: novice to pro. My Sweet Vegan was always the family favorite for desserts...until now!

Vegan Desserts is a lovely collection of photographs and recipes that leap far beyond 'creative'. Avocado Creme Pie? Spiced Beet Cake Bites? Sweet Basil Shortbread? Olive Oil Ice Cream? Skeptical? Then read the recipes and savor the photographs and you will be convinced! For the more timid, the book also has the familiar favorites, too, with a lot of updated and clever adaptations.

This is a book every one will love, vegan or not (non-vegans will never believe that desserts this good are actually vegan!) and it is an excellent gift choice, too. The photographs are professional and absolutely drool-inducing. And I love that the book is divided into seasonal favorites and seasonal availability of the main ingredients: Spring, Summer, Autumn & Winter. The book includes an allergy index, tips, substitutions, troubleshooting and a lot of other extras, too. Bonus: another dog treat recipe!

I dove right into this book (my husband has a sweet 'husk', rather than a sweet tooth!): Mexican Chocolate Creme Caramel and Mojito Sugar Cookies for Cinco de Mayo week, Banana Split Cheesecake and S'Mores Pie and baking in the oven right now is the Golden Saffron Pound Cake. Never a fail!
