    1. If this cookbook were an animal, it'd be a platypus. Male platypuses have venomous spurs on their hind feet. Did you know that? But they only produce venom during breeding season, which is between June and October. Their venom isn't lethal to humans, but its effects have been described as "excruciatingly painful."This cookbook isn't venomous, and instead of excruciatingly painful, it's actually quite delightful. The author's funny, able to admit when she's made a mistake, and is capable of point [...]

    2. From the main title I was expecting it to be heavy on cake recipes and really there were very few, but it does give a nice variety of desserts. I'm a purist when it comes to desserts, I'd rather eat less of the real thing than loads of a 'healthy' imitation, and happily I suffer from no food allergies (aside from Strawberries but since I loath fruit it's not much of an issue). That being said, this was one of the most clever cookbooks I've ever seen, offering variations to please everyone from h [...]

    3. This cookbook doesn’t even bother with boring bread and muffins – it’s all dessert. It’s also not strictly a gluten-free cookbook. Rather, it offers gluten free variations as well as vegan and “healthy” ones.l admit it. I went straight to the Pop-tarts. And I wondered: would the author offer me an actual alternate gluten-free recipe, or just tell me to substitute a GF blend? Because I could do that with any cookbook. As it turns out, the recipe does provide a reasonable looking sorgh [...]

    4. I was interested in this book for the vegan recipes. It hurts my heart to give it 2 stars, especially since the color photos are gorgeous and the desserts look tempting. Not a problem: The recipes are complicated, but fancy dessert recipes often are. Not a problem: The book gives complex step-by-step directions. Problem: To convert a recipe to the vegan version you must refer to a shaded box, with an 8-point font on a different page than the page with the complex directions. Actually using the r [...]

    5. Loved that this book provides so many flexible options on how to make these yummy desserts! And it's written by an experienced pastry chef in dealing with all sorts of accommodations with her clients, from allergies to dietary preferences. There are some ingredients that can't easily be found in stores (hello, VersaWhip 600k), but fortunately, there is a list of resources at the end.

    6. Great cookbook! But then again, I love baking way too much. :-)I think it's brilliant how she has the traditional master recipe with variations for GF and vegan noted underneath. In the GF recipes, the flour mixtures weren't complicated. I made the GF version of the madeleines and they were delicious!I'd enjoy having my own copy to have when traditionally made treats aren't on the menu.

    7. The desserts looked good. But I was surprised that most recipes I wanted where not vegan Sure she had the vegan substitutes after recipe but a lot didn't have vegan All ice cream was not vegan Which I need b/c im allergic to all dairy, wheat,corn,soy and eggs. Hence why I look for Gf vegan baking. Also felt like she used a lot of sugar and corn in recipes but that might be get me.

    8. A books of desserts with vegan options. Yay!! We loved the Chippy Chocolate Cookies and Peanutbutter Toga Cookies. I liked having substitutions explained. I liked that the recipes were not too weird, time consuming, or complicated. I will definitely come back to this book for a sweet tooth fix.

    9. Beautiful illustrations, luscious food, vegan, gluten-free & healthy variations as well as the full carb, calorie versions. Great book.
