Grace's Sweet Life - Book Review


Grace Langlois has been blogging on her site La Mia Vita Dolce for many years now, sharing her passion for cooking with the world. What started out as a blog has now turned into a 200 page cookbook! Grace's Sweet Life: Homemade Italian Desserts from Cannoli, Tiramisu and Panna Cotta to Torte, Pizzelle and Struffolli is her first foray into the printed world and finally showcases the all her Italian dessert recipes in full glory. Same with her blog, this cookbook features beautiful photography of the desserts and in-depth instruction for recreating her recipes.

The cookbook is divided into dessert categories and after looking through it (making my mouth water in the process), I decided to try my hand at making the Nutella Soufflé. I found I had no trouble following along the recipe - Grace's detailed instructions let even newbie in the kitchen like me understand the cooking process! But being a newbie, I learned that I should have prepared all of my equipment ahead of time though. I scrambled a bit looking for that spatula or that measuring cup.

Not bad for my first attempt, eh? lol I over-cooked them a little bit but my Dad gave his nod of approval as he was eating it, so I say success!

The Nutella soufflé was so yummy! I can't wait to try out more recipes from Grace's Sweet Life. Many of these Italian desserts I have never heard of and the photos are really helpful at showing me how they look like. I think it's a great addition to any cookbook collection especially if you like desserts!
