3.0 out of 5 stars Trouble with recipes Oct. 24 2012
By Jodi - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I'm a big fan of Hedy's desserts and couldn't wait to try making her desserts as soon as I received the book. I'm a pretty experienced cook but so far I'm 0 for 2 with her recipes. I first tried the chocolate pudding for a dinner party - the recipe was very straightforward and I followed her instructions exactly. The flavor of the pudding was wonderful, but unfortunately it never set so I ended up serving chocolate soup. My next attempt was the chocolate peanut butter bars. Also, very straight forward and easy, and I followed her instructions precisely. The finished product was delicious but i couldn't cut them into appetizing looking bars like the photo in her book. My chocolate cracked and all the pieces were of various shapes and sizes. I couldn't help but wonder what type of people she used as testers for her recipes. I'm sure I'll try another recipe or two and I hope i have better luck with those.

3.0 out of 5 stars Recipes sound good but have had some trouble Nov. 28 2012
By R. Wuenstel - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The first recipe I tried was You've got chocolate in my peanut butter bars. The first step in the recipe is to melt the chocolate and let it cool slightly. Next, make the peanut butter filling and let it chill for 2 to 3 hours. By the time the filling has chilled, the chocolate that you melted in step 1 is hard again. I believe the chocolate should be melted just before you need to use it. The next problem was cutting the bars. The peanut butter filling is soft and the chocolate hard. I could not cut these into neat bars.

Then I tried the salty peanut brittle. While cooking, it suddenly seized up and crystallized. I have been making brittle for years and have never had this happen. That isn't to say this wasn't my fault in some way but I was disappointed with the results.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hard Feb. 16 2013
By Matthew Harris - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I love Hedy's cookbook Baking Out Loud. I love he book and wanted to try many of the recipe BUT the recipes are 2 pages each and many of the ingredients are VERY hard to find. How many people have seen finely ground cocoa nibs in a normal supermarket?

2.0 out of 5 stars Not clear that the recipes were ever tested? Jan. 26 2014
By Anna Joyce - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I love Hedy and her desserts sound divine. Trying to follow the recipes is, however, a less than divine experience. There are a lot of steps/directions that are omitted, ingredients that appear to be missing, or simply poorly written/tested recipes. I ended up giving the book away because I simply couldn't use it. Disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous and fun! Oct. 8 2012
By tiffany rawson - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Besides all the great pictures, which I love in a cookbook since they give you a real sense of what the chefs style is, the recipes in this book are fun and easy! The snickers (aka chocolate caramel peanut bars) are amazing! And the popcorn ice cream...well, I could eat it all day long! For a real trip down 'childhood treat memory lane', I definitely recommend this book. Especially if, like me, you are a fan of the salty sweet.
