Ingenious takes on popular treats and deserts. I really liked this book and because these kind of recipes are tended to be shared there is no need to give it low marks because its not made for one person. You make the entire thing then take what you don't want to work or a family dinner. I feel that some of the recipes over did the spice they were highlighting, but I think it's easily fixed on the second go around if you did want to try it again. Well written and easy to follow this recipe book will get your friends and family talking when you show up with one of these dishes.
