The book itself was comfortable to read, a good size, lots of coloured pages. Being a very visual person, having coloured pages is really important to me in cookbooks. It helps me understand what my attempts should look like after I'm done. I've had some pretty interesting results in the past, not having a picture reference ;).
On top of the 10 key points, there are a lot of other tips that will help even the most novice in the kitchen with making these recipes. All throughout there are Make Ahead tips too! Seriously, a mothers' best friend! Make ahead anything is helpful when you're strapped for time. And what mother isn't strapped for time? This book is definitely for you moms out there who love to save time and money. Think about it, you spend one afternoon a week making jarred desserts for the week....no more spontaneous trips for ice cream/snacks/what have you. No need :)
These would be delicious and would go over well with a crowd for those special occasions. I appreciate that this is an eco-friendly way of individually packaging goodies. No little cupcake liners, or disposable dishes required!
I couldn't even just choose one recipe to share with you...I'll be sharing another great recipe tomorrow! So I hope you'll come back to see what it is!

Two of everyone’s favorite fruits in one scoop, plus a dash of maple syrup to sweeten. Not only is this dessert delicious, it is especially easy to prepare.
