REVIEW: The Midwest Book Review
The 'Sweet Addition Cooking Series' consists of six outstanding, 90-minute, technically flawless, full color, step-by-step instructional DVDs, each of which is dedicated to creating particular dishes that are characterized by a very special elegance guaranteed to please any palate and satisfying any appetite. The first four ("Breakfast Pastries", "Classic Desserts", "Cookies and Bars", and "Life's Uncertain, Eat Dessert First!) feature Chef Dannielle Myxter.
The last two ("A Few Of Our Favorite Things" and "Simply Salmon" feature Chef Jan Marie Johnson). The simply delicious recipes range from Strawberry Muffins; White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake; and White Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies; to White Gingerbread Spice Cake with Poached Pears and Vanilla Bean Ice Cream; Sunrise Champagne Cocktail; and Chili Cinnamon Rubbed Salmon with Spicy Cabbage Salad and Mango Salsa.
Although each of these thoroughly 'kitchen cook friendly' and enthusiastically recommended DVDs can be obtain individually ($19.95 each), dedicated family cooks, aspiring restaurant chefs, and community libraries should acquire the entire six volume series intact for their culinary reference collections.
