This is one of my favorite books because it has a little bit of everything presented with knowledge and humor and an irrepressible love of sweets. While there are many comprehensive dessert books out there, this one covers a wide range range of American classics with solid recipes and real personality. From St. Louis Gooey cake to coconut tapioca pudding, there is a variation on almost every well-loved dessert you can think of. The techniques are solid and easily extrapolated and the stories are priceless. We love dessert because it makes us happy and reading the stories behind the individual recipes makes you love them that much more.
