Susie Kelly has always been one of my favourite author’s and so when she wrote her first cook book The Lazy Cook (Book One): Quick And Easy Meatless Meals I could not wait to read it. Since then I have tried and enjoyed many of the recipes it contains. Therefore, when I saw its sequel The Lazy Cook (Book 2): Quick and Easy Sweet Treats I couldn’t wait to download it.

This book is a must for everyone who loves deserts. I enjoy cooking and am quite happy to slave over a stove for a long time, if necessary to make a special desert, however, I could not believe how many quick and easy deserts there are. Inside this amazing book you will find pages of recipes, some using only a couple of ingredients and many which can be made a day or so in advance.

The classic Eaton Mess which can be made in moments, light and tempting deserts which can be whipped up in minutes and others like the evil Malakoff which look incredible, but are really quite simple and quick to prepare. Included is also a wonderful ice-cream recipe which has variations to suit any taste. To complete this gem of a book, the author has also included hot deserts, sweets, baking recipes and even some delicious drinks.

I for one am looking forward to experimenting with these tempting recipes at every opportunity I get.

About the author:   

Susie Kelly was born in grey post-war London, and spent much of her childhood and young adulthood in the beautiful country of Kenya.

She now lives in south-west France with a menagerie of assorted animals, and is passionate about animal welfare.

Her first book “Best Foot Forward” was published by Transworld Publishers in 2003, followed by “Two Steps Backward” in 2004, and “A Perfect Circle” in 2006.

Since 2011 Susie’s books have been published by Blackbird Digital Books, whose theme is strong, adventurous women living life to the full. Blackbird Digital Book people love birds and animals, travel, history, romance, natural health and environment, resourcefulness, humour, the surreal and magic.

If her house caught fire and she could only save three things (apart from her animals, of course), they would be courage, compassion and a sense of humour.

About the book:

“I like a dessert to make me feel slightly guilty about eating it, but not enough to make me stop.” Susie Kelly

The 2nd instalment of the travel author’s delightful round-ups of her favourite quick, simple, easy recipes, sprinkled with anecdote and humour.

Susie makes no claims to being a cooking queen. She admits that over the years she has made every cookery mistake possible, including pouring hot oil back into a plastic bottle and watching the bottle melt and flood most of the kitchen. Then there was the great icing sugar misunderstanding…. but in The Lazy Cook she has put together an irresistible collection of the tasty, comfort-food recipes that are enjoyed by her family and friends, spattered with generous blobs of anecdote and humour.
