The Tipsy Grandma… An Anthology of Thirty, Made-from-Scratch, “Boozy” Desserts!: Perfect for Any & Every "Adult" Occasion! (The Dough-Puncher's eBook Series 4)

56987513. sx318

The Tipsy Grandma is the fourth collection of recipes is a short e-cookbook by the editors of CakeChatter. Released 3rd Feb 2021, it's 162 pages and available in ebook format. It's worth noting that the ebook format has a handy interactive table of contents as well as interactive links and references throughout. I've really become enamored of ebooks with interactive formats lately. For Kindle Unlimited subscribers, this book is currently included in the KU subscription library to borrow and read for free. As far as I can see, the recipes are curated from the content included on the blog, sparing the reader from having to hunt for them.

The recipes have their ingredients listed bullet style in a sidebar. Measurements are given in US standard only. Special tools and ingredients are also listed, along with yields and cooking directions. Most of the ingredients are easily sourced at any moderately well stocked grocery store. Nutritional information is included in the footer at the end of the recipes and includes calories, fat, sodium, carbs, protein, sodium, potassium, fibre, sugar, vitamin content and micro-nutrients.Tips and variations on each recipe are included in after the step by step directions. There are small color photos for each recipe. The recipes themselves run the gamut from garnishes and add-ons (maraschino cherries, boozy berries, hard sauce, etc) to puddings, pies, cakes and cookies, and all of them except the maraschino cherries have a boozy twist.

The book also includes an interactive links list for the contributors of the recipes, but lacks any index or ingredients index. There is no metric conversion chart included (but most bakers prefer to do their own conversions anyhow).

Four stars. This would make a superlative selection for busy cooks, and the series is ongoing.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
