This concise dessert guide is a delight, simultaneously romancing the reader's funny bone and introducing her to one delicious dessert after another. With baking projects for every culinary skill level (from no-bakes to the "My Eggs Are Not Getting Any Younger Crème Brûlée") and every situation (from the hilariously bad first date to the breakup with "The Big One"), there's something for every girl baker. With desserts like, "Me and My Cookies Are So Over You" and "Bite My Peanut Brittle, Bi-atch," Bolger has a great gambit to draw readers to her scintillating recipes. And if that doesn't do it, the honest, funny stories of her relationship trials and traumas that fall every few pages will win over even the most happily-married wife. Bolger has also art directed the book, and photographs, illustrations, and graphic design are so poppy and playful that readers will have a hard time deciding which of the delicious creations to attempt first. Let's hope Bolger keeps baking after she gets married, because she leaves readers wanting more. (Oct.)
