"Real Sweet" Has Arrived!
But I really couldn't be more pumped to do that work. Because when it comes to baking, Real Sweet is modern baking in the most exciting way. It's about all manner of sweet treats--some twists on comfort classics, some new ideas for treating yourself and your family with better, more natural, less-processed alternatives to refined white sugar. This isn't necessarily a "healthy dessert" book by the typical definition--it's a useful guidebook for exploring a new world of flavor-packed sugars and sweeteners beyond the one-note white granulated sugar we reach for so often in baking. There's plenty of sweetness here, full fat dairy, even bittersweet chocolate to keep things seriously crave-worthy. There also just happens to be sugars that might even pack a little nutrient punch with them, some whole grains, nuts, fruits, and seeds, the kinds of ingredients that really complement these natural sugar superstars.
I also love that this is a book that can be used for all days and all ages. I've divided up the book by occasion and all the reasons we bake--virtuous lunchbox treats and midday snacks for us and our kids; bake sale-worthy goodies and edible holiday gifts; things for a crowd to bring along for picnics and potlucks; the jazziest dinner party desserts; even candies and ice creams get the Real Sweet treatment in these pages. We're leaving no sweet tooth unsatisfied, all without a speck of refined white sugar. Awww, yeah!
As of March 17th, Real Sweet is available in stores everywhere! And if you're a modern kind of man or lady, of course you can order online:
As the weeks go on, I'll be keeping you posted about upcoming events and media appearances--here on this site, and on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Now go forth, get yourself a copy, and let's get into some Real Sweet baking together!
