Homemade desserts just got quicker, easier, and smarter Alice Medrich rewrites the dessert menu for cooks in search of totally doable desserts without hours of prep. In Sinfully Easy Delicious Desserts, you'll find the quickest lemon tart, a lattice-free linzer (mixed entirely in the food processor), one-bowl French chocolate torte (yes, the real thing, but easier to make), imaginative ways with ice cream, chic puddings and mousses to swoon over, and gooey pies with no-fault press-in crusts. Even soufflés for beginners. And you won't need a rolling pin, a pastry brush, or the skills of a professional baker. As always, Alice's recipes are foolproof and well tested, and her tips for success will make all cooks—even those nervous about baking—confident in the kitchen. Plus there are more than 100 ideas for spur-of-the-moment desserts that don't even involve baking, including fantastic ideas for ways to dress up a bar of chocolate, a pint of strawberries, a handful of dried fruit, fresh cheese, gingerbread, amaretti, and more. And of course all those spot-on combinations for which Alice Medrich is so well known, such as Grilled Pineapple with Coffee Ice Cream, Lemon-Scented Peach Crisp, Salted-Caramel Banana Bread Pudding, and Coconut Pecan Torte.
The ultimate gift for the food lover. In the same way that 1,000 Places to See Before You Die reinvented the travel book, 1,000 Foods to Eat Before You Die is a joyous, informative, dazzling, mouthwatering life list of the world’s best food. The long-awaited new book in the phenomenal 1,000 . . . Before You Die series, it’s the marriage of an irresistible subject with the perfect writer, Mimi Sheraton—award-winning cookbook author, grande dame of food journalism, and former restaurant critic for The New York Times. 1,000 Foods fully delivers on the promise of its title, selecting from the best cuisines around the world (French, Italian, Chinese, of course, but also Senegalese, Lebanese, Mongolian, Peruvian, and many more)—the tastes, ingredients, dishes, and restaurants that every reader should experience and dream about, whether it’s dinner at Chicago’s Alinea or the perfect empanada. In more than 1,000 pages and over 550 full-color photographs, it celebrates haute and snack, comforting and exotic, hyper-local and the universally enjoyed: a Tuscan plate of Fritto Misto. Saffron Buns for breakfast in downtown Stockholm. Bird’s Nest Soup. A frozen Milky Way. Black truffles from Le Périgord. Mimi Sheraton is highly opinionated, and has a gift for supporting her recommendations with smart, sensuous descriptions—you can almost taste what she’s tasted. You’ll want to eat your way through the book (after searching first for what you have already tried, and comparing notes). Then, following the romance, the practical: where to taste the dish or find the ingredient, and where to go for the best recipes, websites included.
These days, people are accustomed to seeing chocolate labeled 54%, 61%, or 72% on grocery store shelves, but some bakers are still confused by what the labeling means and how to use it.

Since 2003, the world of chocolate has grown exponentially and terms like “bittersweet” and “semisweet” no longer suffice as chocolatiers everywhere are making chocolates that are labeled with specific percentages of cocoa.Alice clearly outlines the qualities of different chocolates as she explains how to cook with them. With tricks, techniques, and answers to every chocolate question, Seriously Bitter Sweet will appeal to a whole new audience of chocolate lovers
A New Way to Bake with Non-Wheat Flours, Including Rice, Nut, Coconut, Teff, Buckwheat, and Sorghum Flours
Author: Alice Medrich
Publisher: Artisan Books
The James Beard Award–winning gluten-free cookbook, now in paperback! Baking with flavor flours—oat flour, sorghum flour, teff, coconut flour, and nut flours, like almond and hazelnut—adds a new dimension to dessert recipes. Rather than simply adding starch and structure to a dessert (as is the case with wheat flour), these flours elevate the taste of the dessert as well. The recipes incorporate the most popular alternative flours available on the market today and use them in interesting ways, both alone and in combination. Gluten-free bakers will find a whole new range of baking options at their fingertips. Chapters are organized by flour, each one highlighting the best recipes that flour can be used for—be it muffins, tarts, and scones made with sorghum flour; cakes, cookies, and crumbles made with oat flour; or chocolatey desserts made with teff. The chapter opener text highlights useful information for each flour: the taste, its flavor affinities, and how it’s best used, stored, and more. With 125 accessible and delicious recipes, including Double Oat Cookies, Buckwheat Gingerbread, Chocolate Chestnut Soufflé Cake, Blueberry Corn Flour Cobbler, and Coconut Key Lime Tart, living gluten-free has never been tastier.
Of all the foods forbidden to low-earth dieters, cakes, pies, cookies and other desserts are the ones they miss the most. This collection of recipes from an executive pastry chef brings welcome relief for carb-counters and diabetics with a sweet tooth.

Sinfully Sweet Cannabis Recipes 75 Yummy Easy To Make Desserts My wife Jenny and I moved to Denver, Colorado 3 years ago from Knoxville, TN. Due to my job. But sadly four months after moving to this beautiful state, I lost my job. At first, we thought about moving back, but then we realized there was nothing that we left behind worth going back to. But I will admit it was very hard at first just to keep the roof over our head. Then Jenny suggested one day that we should start a cannabis baking business as we both enjoyed it as a hobby since we moved to Colorado. Since we didn't have the funds to start an actual bakery, we just made a bunch of cookies and brownies one day and took them too many of the Marijuana dispensaries and had them try some samples. Little did we know, in just three weeks we had enough orders from 7 of these places where we had to work 12-14 hours a day to fulfill those orders. Fast forward to the present, we are still baking every day, but now we have hired three helpers and rented a commercial kitchen, business has been growing, and we finally found what we both enjoy doing. Jenny had this idea for a while now that we should put together a recipe book where we share some of our best Cannabis recipes so everyone can enjoy the sweetest high time like we do here. So, here it is, our first try in writing such recipe book, and hopefully, it will be something that can bring a big smile to everyone's face (hopefully after you taste the sweetness of some of this great recipes). In This Book We Share How to calculate proper THC dosage for great Recipes How to Decarb Cannabis 4 Ways to Cook with Cannabis How to Make Cannabis Milk How to Make Cannabis Corn Syrup 14 Gourmet Cookie Recipes 21 Mouth Watering Cake & Bread Recipes 7 Truly Awesome Pie Recipes 7 Yummy Frozen Dessert Recipes 3 Most Popular Chocolate Treat Recipes 4 Sweetest Candy Recipes 14 Scrumptious Puddings, Custards, and other Treat Recipes 5 Out of the World Brownie Recipes Enjoy!
