"How could I not love a book that teaches us how to make roasted pistachio pudding, chai-white chocolate budino, Thai sticky rice with mango and sesame seeds, and sour cream panna cotta with clementine curd? The fact that most of the recipes in Bakeless Sweets are naturally gluten-free makes it a boon for anyone who still wantsdecadent desserts without baking. Also, there’s root beer and cream soda terrine. Need I say more?"
