I just purchased your book More Great Dairy Free Desserts Naturally and wondered if you could recommend a recipe or two for me to start out with?

— Susan Malek


So what I would say Susan is think about what it is that you enjoy eating. Think about the equipment and ingredients that you have in your home. That will help you decide. All the recipes are easy. If you I mean, here's the thing about recipes read them all the way through they should be really clear. if anyone who can read and follow directions can do a recipe, of course, the really operative the real important thing is make sure that the recipe comes from someone who is reliable, but if you don't want to do A component cake, for example Susan I think. wonderful dessert is to make a fruit gel and we use agar, which is a sea vegetable that has been used for Millennia in Asian Cuisine it replaces bovine gelatin. It's very easy to do.
