Living Without Books: Vegan Dessert Cookbook
While many high school kids might prefer to party or shop, 18-year-old Hannah Kaminski cheerfully chose to cook, concocting imaginative vegan desserts in her parents’ kitchen. Now her work is our reward in My Sweet Vegan (Fleming Ink), an impressive collection of luscious goodies, all vegan (no dairy, eggs or other animal products) with some also gluten free. From pies and snack bars to cookies, cakes and candies, Kaminski’s creations are inspired. She uses unexpected ingredients, like ground lentils in her cookies and cayenne pepper in her peanut brittle. Her goal? To create desserts that are top favorites for everyone, not just vegans or special dieters. An avid photographer, Kaminski includes an original photo with each delicious recipe. Written in a breezy, humorous style that shares seasoned baking know-how well beyond Kaminski’s years, My Sweet Vegan is a real treat.
