    I have mixed feelings about this book It has a beautiful format with photos for every recipe which I love It also has some creative recipesHowever I feel some of the recipes just take good recipes and add chocolate in order to get the number of recipes up which doesn't always make it taste better For example the chocolate rice pudding tasted great until I added the chocolate at the end which ruined it Chocolate pancakes are also better off without the chocolate The chocolate zabaglione also would have been much better without the chocolate Just adding chocolate for the sake of it without actually making good recipesThere are also some real big errors in some of the recipes I tried the charlotte russe and the uantity of butter for the filling is completely wrong After wasting lots of butter making a buttery sugary water mixture that I had to throw away I looked online for similar recipes All recipes online said it should be exactly 50% of the uantity the book said I was so mad that they didn't double check the uantitiesAlso many of the recipes really are underwhelming Again I feel like they wanted to have 300 recipes so they lower the standard of recipes they will include just to make sure they have lots The instructions are often lacking and I also feel that sometimes they make you add ingredients one at a time in a specific order completely unnecessarily Every time I try a recipe from this book I pray it is not one of the bad onesThe format is awkward to read too the whole recipe is usually just one large dense paragraph I will often make a recipe and it will look completely different to the picture I don't know if the photographed version actually followed that recipe or if they just left out necessary steps from the instructionBottom line it's nice to look at the occasional recipe is good but many are underwhelming or actually bad recipes I really don't trust the author's cooking ability or proof reading ability The double chocolate brownie recipe is amazing though
