After eating every course of meal, I search for something sweet. Without dessert, my lunch or dinner is incomplete. While planning events, people focus on the variety of food and settles with only one kind of dessert. Along with food, variety in desserts is also important. It makes your party or reception unforgettable. “Variety in desserts? Na, I will still focus on the variety in main course.” People who are still thinking like this then all the best with your diabetic life and events. I have found a dessert cookbook with some sinful recipes. It is called hello desserts!

Tina Basu has written about 15 dessert recipes in this book. Tina Basu has chosen these recipes from her blog Twinkling Tina Cooks. ‘A good dessert is perfect end to the meal.’ Tina knows it very well. Thus, she has cooked these sinful dessert recipes. This cookbook has 7 recipes of no bake desserts, 2 recipes of frozen desserts, 2 recipes of baked desserts and 4 recipes of cakes and muffins. Among no bake desserts, Tina has shared recipe of Mango Cheesecake, Oreo Ice cream cake, Grape Pudding, Kiwi Strawberry Trifle, De constructed Lemon Tart, Strawberry Chocolate Tart and Lemon TartWatermelon Sorbet and Frozen Banana Ice cream are the two recipes under frozen desserts.

Recipe of Mini Apple Pie and Fruity Bread & Butter Pudding are under the head of baked desserts. While under cakes and muffins, Tina has shared the recipe of Candied Fruit Loaf, Chocolate Chip Mug Cake, Strawberry Centre Filled Cupcake and Chocolate Chip Muffins. When it comes to food, cakes and chocolates are my weakness. I never say no to cakes and chocolates. Tina’s cookbook is full of recipes of cakes. Mango puree on the Mango Cheesecake (featured on the cover) brings water in my mouth. Apart from that, there are a couple of recipes under cakes and muffins which has chocolate chips as main ingredient. It makes hello desserts!, a lip smacking cookbook. 

After downloading this book, I shared it with my mom as I can cook only stories not food. “The best part of recipes in this cookbook is no special equipment is required to make them. All of them, can be made with simple equipment.” My mom reacted after going through the recipes. In short, this book is a win-win situation for those who love desserts and those who wants to be a star in their dinner parties. It is not that Tina is good with only desserts. There are a lot of other lip smacking recipes on her blog which includes desserts, mains and entrée from International and Indian cuisines.
