Granny's Secret Desserts

Front Cover
AuthorHouse, 2005 - Cooking - 336 pages
Have you ever started to make a dessert only to find, somewhere in the fine print, a hidden ingredient which is not in your spice cupboard? I can't count the number of times this scenario has happened to me. I get everything ready to create something, and find another ingredient which I don't have, try to substitute, and ruin the dish. With that in mind, I created a "Thumbnail" shopping list which I guarantee has all of the ingredients you will need for the dessert you are going to make, so you can always be prepared when baking with these recipes. Another frustration I have, is being instructed to turn to another page to complete the dessert I am working on. There I am, with my fingers covered with some unknown ingredient, flipping through the cookbook, feeling like Hansel and Gretel depositing crumbs which are destined to stick to the pages being turned, instead of staying in the bowl to become part of the tasty delicacy. Hence, complete recipes! I organized everything onto one page for simplicity. You may find a filling in the filling section, but you will also find that filling on the same page when it is used in a specific dessert. With everyone being more aware of healthy eating habits, I added nutritional facts about each recipe. With this cookbook, you can still enjoy that "home cooking" and know exactly what you are adding to your diet.
