Vegan Desserts by Hannah Kaminsky

vegan desserts by Hannah KaminskyReviewed by Gail Davis. After having my sweet tooth so soothingly satisfied by all of the sumptuously sweet recipes in Hannah Kaminsky’s first book, My Sweet Vegan,* I couldn’t imagine that there could possibly be that many more sweet surprises up Hannah’s skillful sleeve. But to my amazement and delight, her new book, Vegan Desserts: Sumptuous Sweets for Every Season,* holds within its 240 hardbound (yes—layflat!), gloriously full-color pages, more than 100 new recipes that will tantalize any dessert-lover’s taste buds—vegan or not! more→

Appetite for Reduction by Isa Chandra Moskowitz

Appetite for reduction by Isa Chandra MoskowitzI adore the cover artwork, don’t you? It’s so beautiful, I’m inspired to write another book just so I can ask Lisa Diercks to design the cover. Did I mention that Isa wrote this book just for me? Well, not really. It only feels like she wrote it for me. Actually, she wrote it for her own personal reasons. But let’s be honest: Who among us hasn’t eaten more than our fair share of vegan cupcakes and cookies? (Thanks in no small part to Isa.)
