This is one of the best cookbooks I have ever purchased. I have a big sweet tooth and have accummulated quite a collection of cookbooks on cakes, cookies, chocolate, etc. This book covers a large variety of sweets, from cookies (the best chocolate-chip cookie recipe I have ever tried) to sorbet (chocolate coconut sorbet, sangria sorbet) to ice cream (butterscotch ice cream with hickory nuts) marmalades and jams (plum strawberry), sauces (caramel, blackberry), crysalised ginger (which I can't find here, so I have to make it), to cakes (coconut, fresh ginger). I have tried a variety of things in this cookbook (cookies, ice cream, caramel) and they have all turned out DELICIOUS. I made coconut macaroons dipped in chocolate for my husband since he loves them so much and I ended up eating most of them - they were fantastic! A large fraction of the recipes are accompanied by mouth-watering pictures. Lebovitz includes some guidelines at the end for caramelisation as well. You don't have to be an expert to use this book, but you probably do have to have some experience and some tools (candy thermometre, hand-held mixer) for a few of the recipes. The ice creams and sorbets require an ice cream maker. I am extremely pleased with this cookbook and intend to eat my way through all of it. Excellent gift too, but make sure to get one for yourself!

5.0 out of 5 stars I Love You David Lebovitz 22 May 2015
By M - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Why is this book out of print??? Every recipe I tried has come out amazing, love this book. I am a gluten free baker out of necessity, and I stopped baking 3 years ago of frustration. Gluten free flour either sucked, or it required buying 5 different fillers and mixing them together in some magic ratio that never turned out right. I finally found a decent flour and this was the first set of recipes I delved into. This book is fantastic, everything turns out great, even with gluten free flour. Nothing beats the confidence of knowing your expensive ingredients and effort will turn into a great treat you can share with others with pride. I totally rediscovered baking and bought Ripe For Dessert as well. Yes, I love you David Lebovitz.

5.0 out of 5 stars American recipes with a European flair! 4 Dec. 2013
By Wild Thing Foodie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
When I need to impress someone at the end of a meal or for a cup of up tea, I immediately grab this cookbook. Seven years on, I still go for it. His cookie recipes have all worked and have a European palate! Some even freeze well - like the poppy seed dough. And the photographs of the finished product are good too. Mr. Lebovitz is an excellent teacher through his books. I highly recommend owning at least one of his cookbooks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, and Delicious, what more do you need from a cook book? 20 Mar. 2014
By Kalkberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I found David Lebovitz's recipes from an online search for almond cookies (included in this book). They seemed unique, interesting, and surprisingly easy to make. After they came out of the oven, I tasted one and was in heaven. Having baked them for a department function, I kept hearing from my colleagues how delicious they were. The same day, I decided to buy this book, and I have not been disappointed.

If you want a cookbook that will give you simple, (relatively) quick recipes with no exotic ingredients and delectable outcomes, this is the book for you. My only disappointment is that David Lebovitz doesn't branch out into main courses!

No bells and whistles. Overpriced.
5.0 out of 5 stars couldn't be happier! 13 Sept. 2015
By Sam - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Fantastic collection of recipes that aren't found in typical dessert and baking cookbooks. Relatively easy recipes, elegant showstoppers. The seller delivered my used book exactly as it was described. I couldn't be happier with my purchase.
