About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
The book is organized and well written. While vital ingredients are often more expensive (pure maple syrup vs. sugar) and somewhat difficult to find (barley flour), our kitchen is now stocked because this book has become our standard. The recipies call for authentic ingredients rather than replacements so the results are flavorful and satisfying.
I like it that this cookbook doesn't use any hardened fats, like margarine. That's always the first thing I look at when buying a dessert cookbook.
What I love most though is that the recipes just absolutely taste great!
Many people I've made the brownie recipe for, have told me it's the best they've ever tasted.
The cookies I've made from this cookbook have also received a lot of praise, both from kids and adults.
I do often replace the barley flour with whole wheat pastry flour, because in some recipes I find the barley flavor a bit too overpowering (especially for the cake recipes).
I've almost made every recipe from this cookbook and haven't come across a bad one yet.
