Great, great recipes in this little kindle freebie and it would have been worth the $$ price for some of the recipes in the book.

Disappointing and lackluster--something you would expect to find on the $3 bargain rack--and more pedestrian than I would have expected. Most of the recipes are attributed to other bakers and garnished with empty title descriptors like 'righteous', 'amazing', and 'fantastically', along with the oft overused 'decadent' and 'sinful' to describe the chocolate recipes. Uninspiring.
