We made two of the recipes and they were wonderful. The recipe that she promotes the most is her chocolate chip cookie recipe (which requires refrigerating the dough TWICE and contains toasted almonds). My hubby thought they were the best chocolate chip cookies he had ever had but I think I'm a bit of a purist and prefer no nuts. Next time I check it out from the library, I'm going to make the chocolate cherry cookies and some pies.
Okay, so this book is incredible! I LOVE how Melissa Murphy adds something to some of the most basic recipes and makes them unique and INCREDIBLE! Like her Toasted Almond Lemon bars...there's no going back once you've tried this version. OR the fresh orange cream cheese frosting she puts on basic carrot cake. KILLER! Little easy twists that sing in your mouth! LOVE!!!!!
I borrowed this through interlibrary loan, so I can't even check it out again on the quick. This is probably one to buy, especially since I don't have a lot of dessert books. I made one of her pound cake recipes for gifts and the buttermilk pie for Easter, both very delicious!
Okay I am basing this on one recipe--the chocolate chip cookies. The recipe was easy to follow and my husband gave them a 15 on a 1-10 scale. I must admit, the cookies were the best chocolate chip cookies I ever made. I will try another recipe this weekend.
