Wow- I LOVE this cook book! I first heard about author Hannah Kaminsky on her vegan blog. I initially bought this book for her vegan French Macaron recipe. This isn't the coconut American macaroons, it's the French macaron that is typically made with egg whites. I don't know how she did it, but Hannah perfected the recipe. My French Macarons came out beautifully. I really appreciate Hannah's attention to detail. Her directions are very clear and easy to follow, so even if you are not a pro, if you follow her directions, you will bake like a pro. She even explains the importance of steps that she knows that lazy people (like me) are going to try and skip. =) My advice: when baking- follow the recipe! =)
This book is just beautiful. I love it and it makes a lovely gift. The book is made with really nice paper and each recipe has a full color photo! It almost looks like a high quality coffee table book, it's that well done! Hannah is a great photographer and I appreciate that she put so much time and effort into her baby, this amazing book.
The recipes are all amazing! The book is divded by seasons so you can make a special dessert based on special occasions. This book has it all: cakes, bars, cookies, ice cream, there is something for everyone. I'm excited to try the Stuffed Cider Donuts- they look incredible! I also really appreciate that the recipes are easy, there are no crazy hard to find ingredients or fancy machinery. It's something that anyone can do and vegan or not, will enjoy. Hannah proves that vegan baking can be easy, fun, and more importantly- delicious! I will be using this book for many years to come. Btw- I appreciate the awesome price point! Thank you Hannah!
