Oven Proof!

Summertime in sizzling Tucson. Just your luck to be the designated dessert provider at the upcoming potluck or perhaps you want to make that special treat for a birthday, anniversary or dinner party. Stay calm and cool and check out No Bake Makery: 80 Two-Bite Treats Made with Lovin', Not an Oven. Author Christina Suarez Krumstick offers more than 80 desert recipes, that are easy to make, bite-sized, delicious, and adorable (Krumsick refers to the confections as "edible accessories"). Absolutely yummy and - best of all - NO OVEN REQUIRED!

All recipes are easy to make - ranging from three ingredients with three steps to twelve ingredients with ten steps. Preludes to the actual recipes include a list of kitchen tools and supplies, special instructions for working with chocolate and a chart suggesting specific recipes for holidays. Gluten free options are provided throughout the book.

Christina's No Bake Makery's business success has been huge. Four months after launching her bite-sized enterprise from her Brooklyn apartment - with a blog, no-bake recipes and a Paypal account - she counted more than 3000 bites to fulfill orders that had poured in. Outside of her kitchen, which is equipped with a working oven, Krumsick is a publicist at a major publishing house.
