My Review:

I was provided a copy of the ebook galley by Net Galley for the purposes of this review.

What a great concept.  All the recipes have only 4 ingredients.  It is a great idea and very timely as well...simple is good in our busy lives.   Lots of wonderful and simple ice cream / frozen dessert recipes.  I need to get the ice cream maker attachment for my Kitchenaid mixer!  Mmmm...and I want a Raspberry Nectarine Fruit-Tini right now...have to wait for summer though so it's fresh! Oh my, Raspberry Peach Sugar Puffs.  The cookbook is beautifully laid out. A great section on add-ons and essentials is included at the end of the book. Another cookbook that I want for myself now that I've reviewed the galley!
