Richard Simmons: Dazzling Desserts

>> Tuesday, December 29, 2009

Yes. This is for real. And we've been baking our way through it for a few months now. If you want to skip to the recipes, follow these links:
Now more about the man and the book: The Richard Simmons Private Collection of Dazzling Desserts. I didn't believe it at first either . . . but when I found it at a local used book store with a $4.00 price tag, I just had to make it mine. Basically, it's a book full of desserts that are made relatively healthy . . . with poems and other prose written by Richard himself.

He also makes several cameos . . .

What's better is that I've actually worked out with Richard. He came to my college for a health fair my senior year . . . and I was one of the lucky few who got to join him and his sequin-adorned short-shorts on stage. So, it's like having a friend in the kitchen with me. A close friend who, like me, enjoys sweatin' it out to the oldies.

Surprisingly, many of the desserts in the book look, well, good! My friend Erin even suggested I start a Julie/Julie-like project where I work my way through the entire book. Maybe.

What do you think?
