I saw an article in our local Iowa newspaper which featured this book and a couple of the recipes. The title piqued my curiosity, so I bought it. To date, I have made four of the desserts contained therein. None are particularly difficult or time consuming. The instructions are written in novel-like prose and are easy to follow. The flavors in the finished products range from brain-melting (Chocolate Sinkholes) to delightfully sublime (Earl Grey Applesauce). Amaze your family and friends, or create the perfect conclusion to a romantic meal with your spouse at home while the kids are away at Grandma's for the weekend.
