Sweet Eats For All: 250 Decadent Gluten-Free, Vegan Recipes: A Review

Allyson Kramer has done it once again! She keeps coming out with amazing cookbooks, and I keep buying and then gushing about them. I gushed about Great Gluten-Free Vegan Eats, and I gushed about Great Gluten Free Vegan Eats Around the World, and now I'm here to gush about Sweet Eats For All.

What makes this cookbook worthy of such praise? The complete breadth of recipes is all there, from cookies to pastries to ice cream and everything in between. As it says in the title, there are 250 recipes, and they are all (ALL!) amazing and worth a look. Every night since I got it, I've flipped through the book, and I joked just last night that for Hanukkah (even though we don't celebrate it), instead of exchanging gifts with each other, I should bake a new recipe from the book each night.

That probably won't happen EVERY night, but it's been happening about every other night since the book came in the mail. It's the first item I pick up when I sit down to relax on the couch, and even though I've looked through it so many times already, I still find something new every time I open it up.

This book is for you if:

  • you like to bake
  • you are vegan, gluten-free or BOTH 
  • you aren't vegan, gluten-free, or have any dietary restrictions (you're still gonna love it - I promise!)
  • you have a sweet tooth
  • your partner/spouse has a sweet tooth
  • you like to look at pretty pictures of food
  • you want to be inspired
Really, there is no reason this book is not for you, unless you are an alien from Mars. Then, I really can't help you, and I don't know what types of book(s) to suggest for your enjoyment. In the meantime, all Earthlings should experience endless joy by adding this book to their collections. 

Just a few things I've made and enjoyed already:

  • Sugar Cookies (p. 110)

 -Dipped in chocolate:

  • Pearberry Tart (p. 170)

  • Pretentiously Perfect Peanut Butter Cookies (p. 87)

This would be perfect as a (oversized) stocking stuffer or a present for the foodie in your life. Or, even better, a present for you! Whoever receives this book as a gift will be sure to thank you for it.

Disclosure: I bought a copy of Sweet Eats for All with my own money, and all the pictures and opinion expressed within this post are my own.
