I absolutely love Paula and this is the first cookbook of hers that I've bought. The book has a great layout (cakes, pies, cookies, bars, etc.) There are a few pictures (they are not on the same pages as their recipes) that make me want to bake even more! Everything in the book sounds so delicious but the thing that really got me was her pound cake. Now she has about 5 or 6 pound cake variations - I tried the cream cheese variation. Over the past 6 months I have been searching for "the" pound cake recipe and have tried a ton of different ones always with disappointment. When I tried Paula's I kept my expectations low and I was blown away!! It actually tasted like pound cake, not too sweet, not to floury--just perfect!!! I can't wait to try the rest of her recipes, for each ten I looked at I would deffinitely try at least 8 and consider the other 2! A minor disappointment is that some of her recipes call for pre-made cake mixes. Although it is great for cutting down on time I suppose, I don't see the sense in putting pre-made mixes into a cookbook. Still doesn't take away from the flavor or temptation of her desserts. Excellence!

Excellent Book!!!!!

I love Paula Deen and this book is great!!! Simple and DELICIOUS recipes for desserts!!!! It's my all time favorite!!! The 'Gooey Butter Cake' is truly unbelievably good!!! My husband took some in to his work and all the ladies were asking him for the recipe! I let my husband take my book to work the following day and the ladies were going to make a copy of the recipe. But after looking through it, they realized they wanted all the recipes and decided to buy one themselves! I highly recommend this book to all!!!

Wonderful dessert cookbook!

This is a great cookbook if you want good, but not complicated recipes. The Not Yo Mamma's Banana puding is so good and so easy. The book is charming as is it's author. I plan on trying many of the recipes.

Just Desserts - It's The Best

This is an excellent book for anyone who loves to create desserts. Presented in the friendly, southern Savannah style, it's fun to read, and even more fun to cook from. Filled with delightful human interest stories to accompany the recipes, it's entertaining reading even for those of us who just want to "get to the recipe, already".As one would expect from a recipe book from this Savannah epicurian restaurant, the book contains many elaborate recipes for delectable confections. The pleasant surprise is that it also contains a wealth of simple desserts, many from just the ingredients typically found on the pantry shelf. What dessert cook is not always looking for special, easy-to-prepare dishes to delight the sweet palette.Paula Deen does a great job of taking restaurant quantity recipes and cutting them down for home use. In fact, the quantities tend to be small, so feel inclined to double the batch size, because whatever is prepared from this book won't last long.The book contains: * Introduction and Family Story* Hints & Tips (very good info for even the seasoned chef)* Cakes* Pies* Cookies & Bars* Puddings & Custards* Candy* More Sweet Things* Metric Converter* Good Index (very important, and annoying when missing from a book)Bon appetit.
