View and Purchase Books, and Updates 2015

If you're using my book, Amazing Dairy-free Desserts, I thought you might like to know that Fleischmann's margarine, which I recommend for parve or dairy-free desserts, has changed its formula from when the book was written.  For cakes, I recommend increasing the amount of margarine to use by about 15%.  Use the same amount for pastries and cookies, or the doughs will be too soft.  I expect that it will be changing again within the next two years as trans fats are completely phased out.  I guess that will mean more experiments!

These are no longer available on my website.  If you would like a pdf, please contact me and I will arrange to get you a pdf.
PDF cookbooks are so easy to use that you'll never want to use a regular cookbook again.  No more page turning trying to find the recipe you want.  You'll have the index available on the left of your page whenever you want it, and to go to a recipe you simply click on its name.  Click and go is the perfect way to view recipes.
