Glorious Layered Desserts Cookbook… it’s here!!

Glorious Layered Desserts Cookbook - available on Amazon and

Happy March!!  This is a month I’ve been looking forward to for nearly a year…. the month my cookbook, Glorious Layered Desserts, is officially available to purchase!!

What an adventure it was to complete this book…. so many recipe notes, so much chocolate, so much cream, and a lot of love!

Each and every recipe in the book was tested and re-tested several times…. by me, in a pretty modest sized kitchen.  Several days during the recipe testing I showed up at my daughter’s school with jars of pudding, fudge sauce, caramel sauce… it was pretty funny!  I mean, when in your life have you ever walked up to a friend and said… “here, would you like a jar of pudding, I just made 7 batches of it!”

Every recipe in the book has a full page image.  I enlisted the help of a talented photographer friend, Gene Chutka.  We had a lot of fun working together.  He brought all of his photography equipment to my house and I would have a line up of desserts ready to go.  I would set up a photo shoot, making sure there was just the right amount of crumbs, or drizzle, and then he would take the photo.  We’d look at the photos together on his computer, make little adjustments to the set up, and then move to the next recipe.  I’m sure it would have been funny to be a little mouse in the corner and hear our conversations… “Do you think there should be a few more sprinkles on that dessert?”  “Are there a few too many crumbs on the right side of that plate?”  Gene was very patient with me, and his eye for detail was a perfect fit with mine!

The images in the collage above will give you just a little idea of the recipes in the book.  There are over 60 luscious recipes… from Chocolate Nutella Cream Dessert to Raspberry Blackberry Cheesecake Mousse, to Pumpkin Banana Caramel Trifle… I really think you’ll find something for everyone!

In addition to the recipes themselves, I’ve included notes on ingredients, techniques, where to buy supplies, and recipe shortcuts.


This book represents a lot of love, hard work, and a few tears!  I am very proud of the final results.  I am so looking forward to hearing reports from friends, family and all of you sweet readers, as you try the recipes and share them with the people you love.

  30. Congratulations!!! Do you have any dairy-free recipes or options in the cookbook?

    • Hi Lisa! I have alterations in the book for several recipes that are gluten-free, egg-free and/or sugar-free… but there is dairy in almost every single recipe. Most of the recipes call for either heavy cream or cream cheese. In many cases the heavy cream could be swapped for something non-dairy (like cool whip), but I don’t know of any non-dairy swap for cream cheese (maybe you do?). I guess if you order a book and don’t find enough to work with you can always pass it along to a dairy-loving friend =)

  31. Just picked up my copy at Barnes & Noble, it’s “beautiful” !!! Super excited to make these desserts.

    • Yay, thanks! I haven’t made it to my local Barnes & Noble (since the release), so I’ve yet to see it on a store shelf! So glad you picked one up!
