I write this as someone who is not really a baker, and barely a cook. But to me, this is the best of the author's dessert book series. I do love chocolate, but 'creamy' as a dessert theme speaks to me even more. I'm always on the lookout for the ultimate slice of banana cream pie at restaurants, particularly diners. Sadly, I see it offered less and less--maybe because it's so perishable or simply just not PC anymore, what with the calorie police and all. Her recipe for it on page 63, if you follow it exactly, will taste better than any I've eaten in a very long time. Trust me on this. And any fool can make it. Definitely another book to have.

My just finished college daughter has become a great cook, considering she has some food allergies (all nuts and dairy), but has figured out what she can cook healthily with desserts like these once in a while. She made the pot de creme. She ate a half of one ramekin and gave the rest away, but it was enough for her to enjoy without serious consequences to her allergies or health. The rest of the pot de creme ramekins were shared with the rest of the family. I enjoyed one. The dessert was creamy and wonderfully rich!

Really nice book, it shows how to make things such as caramel, dulce de leche, mexican cajeta and a lot of other great creamy creations. What is really nice about this book aswell is the fact that it comes with a mini glossary that tells what are certain item is for people who are new desserts. The book is at a very convinient size. The only thing i did not like is the most of the recipes require too many eggs and egg yolks but other than that I highly recommend it.

I am so pleased to see Lori's latest installation in her luscious dessert series and think it is as every bit as good as lemon, chocolate, and berries (which are in a word excellent). I used to make dessert just for company, but Lori inspires me to try more (nothing like pie for breakfast). And nothing I've ever tried has failed or disappointed. I think she must be an indefatigable recipe tester and writer because her recipes always work.

This is the simplest and most decadent dessert book I own. The fat in the cream makes everything taste better, and shouldn't dessert be luxurious? Also, if you like caramel, you'll love this book because many of the recipes are enriched with it in creamy or crunchy form. Although some of the desserts require multiple steps and planning ahead, some are as basic as placing a few great ingredients in a bowl. The ones I've tried are beautiful and delicious!

Who knew creamy desserts came in so many different and delicious forms? Caramel and Cream Layer Cake, Grand Marnier Pots de Crème, Lemon Meringue Ice Cream, Chilled Chocolate Soufflé, and Cannoli Cheesecake are just some of the 80 delectable desserts in Lori Longbotham's latest book. She also includes information on ingredients, techniques ("Custard 101"), and equipment, and her recipe instructions are clear and unintimidating, as always. The recipe notes are fun to read, and there are color photographs of many of the tempting sweets. And if you don't have the other books in the "Luscious" series--Lemon, Chocolate, and Berries--be sure to add them to your list too!

As a Professional Pastry Chef I have used a lot of books for inspiration and this one moves to the top of my list. I found this to be a lovely and well thought out book, with terrific directions. Lemon, Chocolate, now Creamy......what's next? Please keep them coming!

I own all the Luscious dessert books but Ms. Longbotham has outdone herself with this one! Packed with great ideas and gorgeous photos, this is a cookbook that makes you itch to get into the kitchen and get going. And since all the recipes are well written and very doable, I'll be doing just that.
