Here we are in week two of the summer reading series and I have two awesome vegan full-color dessert cookbooks to giveaway. Even if you already have one of these gems, they make beautiful full-color gifts for the holidays (is it ever to early to plan ahead?) …
Sweet Utopia: Simply Stunning Vegan Desserts
This full color cookbook from Sharon Valencik won over a foodie friend and avid vegan baker who writes reviews for Go Dairy Free. She was immediately pleased with the beautiful photography and the easy-to-follow recipes, but hooked after sampling some of the near perfect cookie recipes. Of course, this cookbook doesn’t stop with cookies … cakes, pies, muffins, cobblers, bread pudding, and more can all be found within.
My Sweet Vegan: passionate about dessert
Though she always throws in some classics (like Black and White Cookies and Pumpkin Pecan Pie) the author, Hannah Kaminsky, is well-known for adding new twists to old favorites (think Baklava Tart and Not Nog Cupcakes), and coming up with completely unique new concepts (how about Green Tea Tiramisu and Pomegranate-Ginger Cupcakes). This author focuses almost exclusively on desserts in all of her culinary adventures, so she definitely knows her sweets.
