Homemade Decadence was an absolutely mouth-watering cookbook. From cover to cover it was beautifully done with gorgeous photos, luscious recipes and a comforting voice from the author as she talked about each of the dishes. It was just beautifully done set of recipes and will definitely be one I use again and again.
Um...yum?! SO many yummy looking recipes and easy to find ingredients. There were also some daring combinations for flavors that while not for me--I'm rather unadventurous when it comes to food--would delight those that like interesting combos of flavors, textures and scents. Ex-- Roasted Strawberry & Balsamic Grits or Apple Pie with a Cheddar-Bacon Crust.
