I was very impressed with the look and contents of this book! I have only tried one recipe so far, although there are more that I am anxious to try soon. The one I did try was a chocolate raspberry frozen desert, and I got the whole thing finished before I realized that there is no chocolate in the ingredients. The crust was stickier than I thought bit should be, so I'm sure that is where it should have been, so next time I think I can fix it, but I was disappointed. I am still anxious to try more recipes though.
Beautiful book but be aware that many recipes call for coconut butter or coconut milk. I avoid these high saturated fat items due to coronary heart disease risk. I bought the book for my 83 year older mom who is a plant-based heart attack survivor, so these things are not appropriate for her. What would be good is if alternate ingredients that work for each recipe were provided. Flavor and texture would have to be taken into account. That’s my only criticism. Some of the recipes are fine as is. I saw the author on Chef AJ and no mention was made of these types of ingredients. I assumed the recipes would be more in line with the diet Chef AJ promotes.
This is the most beautiful recipe book I have ever had! The colors are beautiful, the photos are gorgeous - the flowers, the delicious confections- the page lay-outs are so appealing and helpful. I can't say enough about the sheer beauty of the book! So far I have made two of the recipes (and am itching to make more), and they were delicious. I'm happy to have such a nice collection of healthful desserts to make for myself and my family. Congratulations to Talia for creating such a spectacular book!
Loving my new book. As I recently started eating without oil and dairy (I’ve been a vegetarian for most if my life) I was craving delicious treats and voila! Talia’s book is exactly what I esa looking for. I received the book last week and made the flourless almond ginger cookies, the lemon cookies (which my family devoured within a day ) and yesterday I made the lemon poppy seed muffins that I love! The book has also info on the ingredients, a plus! Thank you for bringing consciousness to our eating habits.
I haven't had time to actually make anything from this beautifully presented Desert book yet, but I did peruse the recipes and they all look wonderful. I am a seasoned cook/baker and I can tell these are very delicious and healthy recipes with properly calculated ingredients. Can't wait to try some.
Tried a few and love them! Thanks for putting this together
Excellent book, very healthful recipes, clear, concise directions, great variety.
Beautiful book! Not all recipes Nutritarian friendly but enough to make it worth the purchase. Will be giving as a gift this holiday season coming up.
