So after some variations on the pear tarte and a couple of other deserts, I'd like to learn how to prepare some more simple desserts from scratch. I really don't even eat dessert that much, I'm more of a main course type of guy, but I can take them in small doses.
Can anyone recommend a good beginner's cookbook? I mean I have Joy of Cooking (new, yes I know) and some other cookbooks, but nothing basically for beginners. Simple, delish recipes that are not all time consuming are best.
Thanks in advance,
