"[The Kitchn Cookbook] is essentially a road map for organizing the busiest room in your house, stocking your pantry, and implementing simple tweaks that will make cooking faster, more delicious, and more fun." Every Day with Rachael Ray Magazine
" is the go-to site for many home cooks, owing to its warm, friendly editorial voice; its accessible recipes and how-tos; and the glimpses into other people’s kitchens--both figuratively and literally. [The Kitchn Cookbook]’s 150 recipes include one-pot coconut chickpea curry, slow cooker carnitas, and no-bake banana and peanut butter caramel icebox cake. Tips for stocking, organizing, and cleaning your kitchen are also included--the five-minute-a-day plan for a clean kitchen alone makes the book worth the price." Library Journal

Bakeless Sweets is the first cookbook to give you all of these beloved no-bake desserts in one big book.

Bakeless Sweets is a tasty morsel, with recipes that work, photos that inspire, and budinos that will make you blush. I wanted to eat the pages right off the spine.

The fact that most of the recipes in Bakeless Sweets are naturally gluten-free makes it a boon for anyone who still wants decadent desserts without baking. Also, there’s root beer and cream soda terrine. Need I say more?”Shauna James Ahern, of and author of Gluten-Free Girl and the Chef
