As a Recipe Developer and Contributing Food Editor for a new food magazine, I spend a huge amount of time looking at magazines, food blogs and cookbooks. I was so excited about this month’s release of “Desserts 4 Today” from Pasty Chef, Cookbook Author, and Fine Cooking Magazine’s Contributing Editor, Abby Dodge. This cookbook is filled with sophisticated, yet easy to make, sweet treats compiled in 5 chapters: Cookies, Creamy Desserts, Frozen Desserts, Fruit Desserts and Pastry Desserts. Each recipe offers notations of “Switch-Ins”, variations to the recipe as well as “Gussy It Up”, ways to dress up each dessert. This book offers so many fabulous recipes for a busy mom, kids or anyone wanting to make fabulous dessert recipes with only 4 ingredients. My daughter helped me choose which dessert to make first, and is she marked over 10 different recipes. I chose the Mini Bittersweet Chocolate Cheesecakes, and they were fabulous! I used semisweet chocolate (as the recipe gives the option for bittersweet or semisweet), and my kids and guests went wild over them.
