Gosh, I am a sucker for the oh so prettily illustrated Susan Branch books. Just Darling- The font is amazing, it is like girlish scroll handwriting but still easy to read even in the smaller sizes. I love how the titles are Watercolor in a different color ink for each item,i.e. the chocolate cake title is a warm brown, orange cake is orange, Sweet potato recipe is rusty orange.
The outside of the recipe pages are decorated with teensy tiny details, small dots, roses borders, hearts and cherries
This sweet =) book is mostly a recipe book. It's a collection of recipes for desserts and some recipes are the same as in other books written by Susan Branch, because this is truly a collection. You will find so many classical recipes! Like for pies (blueberry, apple, banana cream..), cakes (chocolate, orange, carrot..), fruit desserts (chocolate-dipped strawberries, baked apples..), fruit sauces, puddings (rice, tapioca…) and some other treats like profiteroles, lemon squares… It's such a wonde ...more
Darling little book which is the result of her recipe contest. You'll want to try the winning recipe, Fairy Cakes, or Chocolate-covered Strawberries, or Peach Crisp, or...maybe just one of each!

Delicious little book with wonderful recipes for your sweet tooth. As usual Susan's illustrations are such a treat in themselves. I'll sum it up in one word -"Sweet".
Adorable book. I got it as a gift, I believe, and I've enjoyed it. I don't think I've cooked from it yet...hehe. The recipes are pretty general and simple.
So many yummy recipes and I've loved all I've tried! So has my sweetie! Again, Susan Branch's cute style with sweet and fun sayings and ideas.
A sweet little book to give as a valentine treat to a favorite friend.
