I JUST got mine...haven't pulled everything out of the boxes. I'm a scared to look at the nutrition numbers though! PC definitely isn't "pc" about low-fat/healthier recipes. :)

The hardest part is going to be deciding which to make first! YUMMY!

I was on the phone with a friend as I was going through it. She almost yelled at me because now she had to go get a candy bar because she had such a craving for sweets! It is awesome. I was very surprised though to see a food processor and an electric hand mixer referenced in the recipes! I think it has been quite a while since they used something other than PC products to make a recipe! They got a little more exotic too! Vanilla beans, candied ginger, pomegranates, rosemary and basil in desserts! The Rosemary Scented Citrus Knots! Does that sound great or what! And a nectarine basil pie! And I love that they have a recipe for Salted Caramels! The Contessa had a recipe and I missed it so... I have a friend who makes them and boy they are simply wonderful! That touch of salt just does something marvelous to them! And Pumpkin Whoopie Pies! Dang - now I need SUGAR!

My husband and I were going thru it last night as well. HOLY COW...I KNOW I am gonna sell a ton of those. PC did everything right in that cookbook, from types of desserts to the pictures.

One of my new team members tried out the Smores Cups this week and she said they are soooo easy and to die for. She has her Grand Opening tonight and she's going to quickly demo that recipe :) I am DYING to try them. I can't wait for tonight. LOL

OM Goodness - Caressa is right! The recipes, the multitude of pictures and everything about this one is way better than anything I have ever seen from PC. I too will not have a problem selling this one! And let us know how the demo goes and what people said about the recipe in general.

Holy toledo! My son and I just flipped through the book...I think I gained 10 lbs!! :eek: My son kept asking "can we make that tonight??"
But there are so many that look divine! A few that look a little more complicated than I will probably bother, but wow. Good thing my DH is allergic to banana's or I'd be making that Banana Foster's dessert tonight! *I'll save it for a dinner party or event where I can share with OTHERs and just have a sample*.

I can't wait to get mine. For some reason it is still showing stuck in Chicago. It was shipped on the 8th. No clue why it still says stuck in Chicago. When I talked to PC and Fedex yesterday they said because of the storm. But that ways days ago and it still hasn't moved. I want my cookbook!!! LOL

the smores cups are the first thing I want to try! And definitely DO NOT look at the nutritional info -unless you want to feel guilty the whole time you eat any of these.:)

John, let's just say.....I could have eaten the ENTIRE batch of the Smores Cups, by myself in one sitting! :eek:

I am not a graham cracker crust person, but I could have eaten the graham cracker crust bottom just by itself. The recipe is sooooooooooo incredibly easy to make and OMG too, too good.

We didn't dip the tops of the marshmallows in chocolate and they were still divine. Also, the recipe says to cool completely but really, the ooey gooeyness of the warm Smores rocks the house. They are good either way but warm is top notch :love:

I can't wait to try out every recipe in that book. Altho, I'll need to implement a serious exercise routine to combat the billions of calories I will consume "taste testing" all the desserts. I'll get to now put more blame on PC for the extra inches on my hips. :)

You are all cracking me up!!! I have not looked through the book, but now I am convinced that I need to get off the computer and "investigate" the matter at hand!!! Luckily, I just ate oatmeal with my new addiction, Sweet Apple Sprinkle!!

I think after introducing THIS cookbook, it would be hilarious if they come up with some incentive that included Home-Gym equipment or a fitness spa-retreat.

I do too! Just looked through it and I am so glad I looked on a full stomach!! I don't know where to begin!!

Looking right now as to if I can include any in a party. My criteria is that they be done fast and half way through the book, I am only seeing the Lemon Drop Cookies so far.

I am so impressed by this cookbook. It is beautiful!

But, I tried the first recipe from it tonight, the hot cocoa trifle cups....not impressed.

But, I still have high hopes for other recipes! :)

Perfect idea!!

I may make the maple pecans (not looking at the cookbook right now so may have the wrong nut) that go on top of the pumpkin trifle just to eat by themselves, and I'm not a big nut person. But I love anything maple.

I like how the recipes even specify "this not that" ie. pumpkin pack, not pumpkin pie filling. And of course the cooks tips with the substitution notes are great.

Along with many of you, my kids were drooling at the pictures. If only that made it scratch and sniff.

I bought the ingredients for:

Chewy Peanut Marshmallow Bars
Caramel Chocolate Mini Bars
Hazelnut Shortbread
Cranberry Shortbread Struesel Bars


I guess I'm more into the cookies than the other desserts - they look good to me, but it's the cookies/bars that call out my name!

There are several more I want to make -- I had to make myself stop for now!:eek:

I got a chance to look at it at my Director's house this weekend. OMG - they did a wonderful job on this cookbook. I am so impressed.

I am SO excited that there are recipes in there for the torte pans. I don't use these pans nearly as much as I would like.

Now, I have to get off my butt and decide on the sample packs so I can place my order and get this cookbook ASAP!

My 3 year old has claimed the cookbook. I had to hide it -- I am looking forward to making all of the recipes. (Maybe one per week? -- that will keep me busy for over a year)

Would any one with the new cookbook be willing to post the smores and the lemon cookie recipe? I'm waiting for mine to arrive and have a show on saturday.
Thanks in advance

A reward for selling 100 cookbooks!

I made the Cookies and Cream Cheesecake Bites last night and they are both wonderful and impressive. I brought them to the office for sampling and the consensus was that the two different levels of chocolate-y goodness from the filling and the little cookies were perfect together. One thing that I did that the recipe did not say to do -- I scraped the creme filling off the cookies that I used to line the muffin cups since I am not a big fan of the white stuff but I love the cookies.

I did not use the paper liners; I sprayed the cups with PAM and the cheesecakes came right out of the pan with just a tiny bit of encouragement from my citrus peeler. My biggest issue with making them was getting the four cookies to stand up while I scooped the filling in and even then only 2 of the 24 were real problems.​

Anyone who has made the Smore's cups...I have an open house on Saturday, could I make them Thursday night? Just wondering if you think they'd be as good. TIA!
