8 Broads in the Kitchen News

Announcing DESSERTS! by 8 Broads in the Kitchen  –  Hot off the Presses!

Desserts Cookbook

Yup! We’ve done it again!

The 8 Broads in the Kitchen are on a sugar high, celebrating our 10th anniversary with the publication of our sweetest cookbook yet, Desserts! We’ve sacrificed our waistlines and loosened our belts to bring you our best 150 dessert recipes ever.

Desserts! has a variety of decadent treasures – from cakes, cookies, cobblers, crisps, and cocktails, to pies and puddings; from chocolate goodies and fruit desserts to icy treats; from prize winners to family favorites and foreign accents. We’ve even included easy and fun recipes for kids–or for the kid in you.

With 100 full-color photos throughout, you’ll be sure to find something to satisfy any sweet tooth.

The 8 Broads had lots of help in creating this cookbook, commandeering taste testers from our families, friends, and friends of friends. Desserts! is a companion to our earlier delightful collection, Breakfast & Brunch Recipes.

The 8 Broads in the Kitchen are eight women who are innkeepers or retired innkeepers from across the US. Ten years ago, we put our heads and talents together to create a blog, at a time when few people had even heard of a blog. Through the blog, we have connected with friends, inn guests, family, fellow innkeepers, and cooks and bakers throughout the US and beyond.  Our blog eventually led us to consulting, creating a presence on many social media sites, as well as presenting webinars and workshops at local, regional, and national events. But most of all, we love stirring up fun in the kitchen!

Not all superheroes wear capes. Some wear aprons and create irresistible Desserts!
