I hate baking. Really, I do. when I picked this cookbook up, it was really just for the fact that I was tired of trying to find little baked goodies that I could have that were egg and dairy free. Not the easiest thing in the world, I assure you.

So I went through the cookbook and chose three recipes, completely at random, and decided to try them out on my friends and coworkers.

First of all- the recipes were super quick and easy, and I even enjoyed myself while making them. Not too much effort re

Veganism can have a bit of a bad reputation for those who are not adherents. Mostly due to ignorance and unfamiliarity. Yet more and more people are turning to veganism or another restricted dietary regime. So for the converted, this can be a good additional resource. For the uninitiated it can be a good education aand show you that veganism does not necessary mean bland, tasteless and lacking in things.

The author has turned away from typical vegan staples such as tofu, applesauce, egg replacer

Finding a really good vegan baking book has been hard to do in the sea of them hitting the shelves I had tried many and not found the one till-This one is a winner. First I love the beautiful photographs they make you want to taste them. The recipes are easy to follow, precise and have ingredients that are easy to find. I made four different recipes from the book and all came out delicious, but one stole my doughnut loving heart. The Baked chocolate Doughnuts recipe is what I have been looking ...more

One of the better things in life and living it healthy is eating healthy food. This is a fact that cannot be denied. In comes Chloe Coscarelli, winner of the very first Cupcake Wars on Food Network. I saw that particular war and figured here is a beautiful woman who thinks she can make a difference, an opinion shared by my girlfriends who laughed and called out to the show "Good Luck!" When she won it, we ate our words. Who would ever have thought, VEGAN desserts? It was like saying that dessert ...more

OMG...I NEED this book! The thing I love most is that it is NOT an allergy-free book. It is vegan: no dairy, no eggs. For someone who loves to bake (me) who has a child with severe food allergies (dairy, beef; outgrew egg and peanut) desserts have always been a challenge. This book's pictures alone had me drooling! Really, seriously, a non-dairy whip cream recipe! For those who can't comprehend the joy of this discovery, just consider yourselves lucky. This book is inspiring; I almost want to op ...more

This poor book has been idling in my currently reading stack for a while now. Since I have cooked a few things from it, thought I should finally review it. ;-)

I have been following Chloe Coscarelli after seeing her win Cupcake Wars on The Food Network several years ago. I have all three of her cookbooks and want to try her very popular NYC vegan cafes someday. She makes vegan cooking simple and approachable with her recipes and explanations. Many of the dishes can be made with simple pantry ingr

Chloe Coscarelli has done it again – made being vegan so easy and delicious!

As the winner of Food Network’s Cupcake Wars and the author of Chloe’s Kitchen, Chloe has proven herself when it comes to vegan cooking, but Chloe’s Vegan Desserts is an absolute treat (pun intended). It is filled with delicious recipes that are packed with flavor. Everything from Tiramisu Pancakes to Raspberry Coffee Cake, and from Chocolate Doughnuts to Pumpkin Pie has been made vegan and simple. There are options for

Chloe's Vegan Desserts is a different kind of vegan baking cookbook. Her finished products resemble non-vegan textures by using baking science rather than relying on simply substituting ingredients. Coscarelli is the author of Chloe's Kitchen and was the first vegan winner of Cupcake Wars.

The recipes take you from breakfast treats to cookies in seven chapters: Desserts for Breakfast; Cookies and Bars; Pies, Tarts, and Cobblers; Cakes and Cupcakes; Spoon Desserts; Drink Up!; and Basics. Her two i

The beautiful Chloe did it again! Here's another GREAT book for vegans and non vegans alike.

First of all, I love all of the mouth watering pictures in this book. It's full of pictures of super delicious treats! Even better yet, it's full of great recipes for vegan delights!

This isn't a health book to spread the word of vegan clean eating. This is for comfort yums, decadent vegan indulgences. When I want to eat cruelty free "junk food" I usually end up peering through this book and it never disap

I still really like the personality of Chef Chloe, but had to take off a few stars for this book because I can't see myself bothering with vegan margarine a whole lot. Plus, any recipe for coconut praline sorbet that starts with "go to the store and buy a container of coconut sorbet" isn't that impressive in my book.

All the recipes I've tried so far have not only worked beautifully, but called for regular pantry ingredients! Not that I mind the random flaxseed etc, but these are great. Everything works and tastes just great... You'd never know it wasn't your grandma's recipe.

Every recipe I have tried from this book is delicious. I highly recommend it, whether you are vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, health conscious or just enjoy great desserts. The lemon poppy seed muffins are my favorite! Yum!

As a pastry chef, and a baker who tries to bake without eggs and dairy, I was really looking forward to this one! Unfortunately, while it has many nice recipes and ideas I'm somehow disappointed... I'm giving it 3 *, purely because of few nice cake and cupcakes recipes in there, but I still think it's more of a 2* cookbook as a whole. Before you shout at me here (and I did notice that the book has mostly positive reviews) let me explain.

This is a brilliant book! I often find vegan cookbooks frustrating because they require such strange and often difficult to get hold of ingredients. This book however, uses everyday ingredients that you most likely already have sitting in the cupboard and turns them into delicious vegan treats. Easy to follow, full of inspiration, a range of tasty recipes. I initially borrowed this book from the library but loved it so much that I've since bought myself a copy!

This is a fantastic vegan resource for desserts! Instead of containing substitutions and harder-to-find ingredients, Chloe relies on science instead of substitutions in order to keep the ingredient list and recipes from getting confusing (or expensive). These are recipes that won't make you feel like you're missing out on anything, whether being vegan was a choice or a health decision! For those that need gluten-free recipes, Chloe's adds short and simple notes on how to tweak a recipe to accomm ...more

This is a great vegan cookbook that's accessible for the beginner or 'sometimes' vegan, largely 'flexitarian', I eat super low on the food chain type like myself. I've made several of the recipes in this book and continue to try new ones. The Ooo la la lasagna is one of my go-to's as are the vanilla cake, cinnamon-espresso cookies, ooey-gooey cinnamon rolls..and a few others.

I've read some reviews that suggest that her recipes are 'basic' and not that healthy but the beauty in Chloe's recipes l

I absolutely love Chloe's first cookbook, Chloe's Kitchen, and use it regularly. So I had to read this book as soon as it was available to me. Despite the fact that I'm strictly limiting my intake of sweets right now. So I haven't TRIED any of these recipes yet...but wow, there are so many in here that look and sound delicious! I really appreciate that so many of the recipes include directions for adjusting them to gluten free. I'm especially eager to try Mojito Chocolate Chip Cookies, Lemon Oli ...more

I enjoy Chloe's recipes but she is not my go-to dessert person. She is rather heavy on the sugar and white flour, which isn't really my style of baking. My favorites of hers in this one are her cream pies, particularly the chocolate cream pie. I prefer Chloe's Kitchen: 125 Easy, Delicious Recipes for Making the Food You Love the Vegan Way since it has a mixture of different menu items, still including desserts. However, I think I prefer Dreena Burton's desserts since they are usually more simple ...more

You can NOT go wrong with anything Chloe! All of her recipes are simple, fast, and use readily available ingredients. Not to mention that they are WAY healthier than the average desserts. Don't get me wrong, this is not health food, but there is zero cholesterol and zero guilt in any of these recipes. Chloe was the first winner of the Food Network's Cupcake Wars, and it's easy to see why. Highly recommended for everyone who loves dessert, but doesn't necessarily want to work hard in the kitchen. ...more

The recipes are easy to make with minimal need for a run to Whole Foods. There are a lot of ingredients that make me cringe like vegan butter and canola oil, possibly a few more too. I did not make every recipe, but what I did make was easy and really good. Her lemon olive oil cake was my favorite, and I am determined to convert it to a grain free cake with coconut flour. After getting super sick from years of eating vegan, I no longer eat this way as it is not for everyone. Chloe is a cute litt ...more

yummmmmmm. That's all I have to say.
But really, this book is full of great recipes for indulgent treats for vegans and those who prefer to cook or bake that way- at least some of the time. These are not always healthier versions of great desserts- they are still high in sugar- but at least they are low in saturated fats and use whole food ingredients. I have loved everything I have tried in this book and also really enjoyed the great glossy photos.

Chloes offers, beside the usual vegan dessert options, some options unusual to see made-vegan such as creme brulee. For the most part she uses somewhat common ingredients (though my local vegan margarine do not bake well) so you should not need to have anything like a Whole Foods nearby. I tried out her chocolate donuts and found them to be delicious.

As with the other Chloe Coscarelli cookbook I own, the recipes are delicious. There are also (as with the other cookbook) too many pictures of people and not enough of the food. I suppose it's a minor quibble though, since the recipes are yummy.

This is an excellent book for any vegans out there who would like to try some simple recipes that are both tasty and that use non traditional ingredients. Of times vegans have a great deal of difficulty finding something new and this book fits the bill.
