Elizabeth Falkner's Demolition Desserts, by Ann Krueger Spivack
For their daughter's 1st birthday my friends baked "Chocolate Chip Cookies Straight Up or with Nuts" and Chocolate Chip Espresso Cookies" to which I absolutely fell in love with! I immediately went out to buy the book so I could make them myself. This book is so much fun to flip through. It looks nothing like your average cookbook. The design is part anime, part punk and tons of fun! The recipes range from the easy to hard but Elizabeth explains everything quite thoroughly so you don't feel like any recipe is too daunting. Many of the recipes also suggest mixing the ingredients by hand. She feels the end product comes out better. And personally I feel like you put more love into it. I think this book is a must have for anyone who loves a good dessert!
