Watch out book club! I'm making at least 2 recipes from this book for you.

A wonderfully sinful collection of semi-alcoholic treats. I made the Naughty Girl Scout cookies both for my co-workers at the library and for my kendo class's black belt party. This is yet another book that I'm going to have to break down and buy because I keep borrowing the library's copy.

~*Good Recipes*~ Hiccup :o)

I've tried some recipes from this book and I was really impressed! My favorite is this blueberry rum pie. Yummmmy! The recipes are easy to follow and there are pictures of the finished product so you can compare your creation. I use this book a lot.

Yummy recipes. Can't wait to try some.

Awesome cookbook, especially if you are looking for something a *bit* different and off the beaten path of baking cookies and cupcakes.

I have baked many of the recipes in this book and they all turn out quite good. Often you will get recipes that sound great and turn-out not-so-great, but not these.

I don't buy many cookbooks since I get most of my recipes online or from my own head, but this one is a good one to have lying around. Especially if you and your friends enjoy liquor and baked goods...more

I thought that this book may be a fun read, and it kinda was. Unless you have access to a FULLY stocked bar or are trying to use up odds and ends from a party, you may find this book to be expensive on ingredients. The majority of the recipes call for too much alcohol to leave it out or use and extract for the flavor if you were severing these to mixed aged company.

So much fun! If you've ever wanted to experiment with baking with booze, you need to try this book. It's beautifully laid out with lush photography and simple, approachable recipes. There are also recipes for unique potent potables to boot. You will be inspired and your sweet tooth will thank you!

Fun way to spice-up many standard and some new desserts. If only they all worked well vegan! Of course, now I am under the impression that it is entirely socially acceptable to simply add booze to baked goods for good measure.

I prefer simpler recipes so I wouldn't attempt anything in this book. However, they do sound delicious so if you don't mind more complicated recipes, I'm sure they'd turn out great.
Celeste
I've only made one of the recipes(amaretto cheesecakes)but they've become a favorite among my friends, and so many of the others sound amazing I just haven't gotten around to trying them.
Kris
Fun book with about 75 recipes for using booze in baking. Cooking with spirits is as easy as using real vanilla. Yes, vanilla has alcohol in it.

I read this on my Kindle reader.

Although I have yet to prepare any of the recipes the book is definitely tempting. The photos get your tastes buds excited, and will no doubt have you craving some boozy desserts.
Jennifer Chapman
I have not yet tried any of the recipes but her writing style is funny. I have bookmarked many recipes to try. I will have to make a few then write a real post.
Kaitlin
I love this book! I just made the champagne cake for an Oscar party and the directions were simple and effective. And... it was fun! A great cookbook.
Corrin
Eh. Some of the recipes look pretty tasty, but there's nothing particularly new or revolutionary here. Add booze to baked goods. That's the gist.
Darcy
This one had some interesting recipes. I did find a couple that I want to try, but most looked like too much trouble to mess with.
Stacy
Some good sounding recipes. There are a few I would like to try: Grasshopper pie, pomegranate pumpkin cake, and Dirty Girl Scout cookies.
Marjorie
Rating it four stars because I haven't tried all the recipes yet but the ones I have made are amazing!
Miss O.
Fabulous, spirited recipes for tasty beverages and desserts!
