Must read 🏆

With Iman's how-to images, tips, and suggestions, I feel empowered to take on every decadent dessert.

"Sweet Love is a compilation of classic desserts handed down from one generation to the next. The intention behind this book is to revive bonding, love, appreciation, and connection throughout generations of families through the love of baking." - Iman Osman


The author's intent with Sweet Love is to bring her kids and her mother together over our shared love for food, for the timeless desserts that her grandmother has passed down to them. I couldn't wait to see what seasonal and nonseasonal desserts Iman had shared. 


Iman Osman did not only offer recipes; they also shared tips. For starters, they instructed readers on what to use in place of ghee, how to properly cut and store a vanilla bean, and dividing a cake. As a fan of cooking and baking shows, I've seen bakers (professionally and home cooks) attempt to do the perfect split. I haven't tried it myself, but I think it's time to try it using Iman's instructions. 


Iman Osman's family recipes look divine. Oh, how I wish I could reach inside my laptop and pull out the beaters. I bet the chocolate ganache tasted delicious. 


My family loves raspberry jam, so I know they will be thrilled if they see me making fresh jam for them. With only three ingredients, the recipe will be easy on the wallet. Since I have never made fresh jam before, I appreciated all the "Tips and Tricks" and the storing information. 


The "Linzer Cookie" also looked yummy and activated my sweet tooth. I will have to try it this winter. Thank you, Iman, for the "How to assemble a Linzer Cookie." You took the guesswork out of the process! 


There are numerous mouth-watering recipes in Sweet Love. Chocolatey, fruity, custards, pudding, biscuits, cheesecake, cookies, nutty—Iman has that and much more! 


This book contained recipes for desserts that I have tried before in my home and through travels. It also had desserts I've only seen on television and longed to try, such as "Granita" and "Kunafa." With Iman's how-to images, tips, and suggestions, I feel empowered to take them all on. My family will thank you; my waistline, not so much. 


Sweet Love is the perfect book for any time of year. So, grab your apron, and let's serve something sweet for your family tonight!

As an author, I know the importance of book reviews. I've been constructing reviews for a decade and don't plan on stopping anytime soon. FYI: I will be sharing some of the books I read through this site on my blog, Instagram, and Twitter. #KamsPlace Don't forget to tip your waitress! :D
