Nice photography & an entertaining style of writing. That's my only positive comment. I tried "Banana Cream Pie with Pretzel Crust", pg.167, because the combo of chocolate & pretzels with banana cream pie sounded great. I assumed a TV personality chef would have well-tested methods. Wrong!! Pretzel crust would not hold together. Using only yolks instead of whole eggs did nothing to improve the cream filling or keep it firm -- plus the method was more difficult than the 'old-school' Better Homes & Gardens cookbook. Why did I assume the melted chocolate layer would somehow stay soft?? No ...it returned to it's original rock-like state so I had to pound my fork into it on my plate to break it up. (Ditto for my guests!!!) Nothing about the method prevented the bananas from turning black. It's down the garbage disposal now.
I won't waste my time trying more of Duff's or Sarah's recipes.
