Readers smitten with the rich stuff of Boston's Rosie's Bakery will be wooed by proprietor Rosenberg's assorted recipes and personal revelations. The fixings for calorie-laden cold fudge sundae cake, chocolate fruitcake and
brownie cheesecake are interspersed with well-organized information on equipment, methods, ingredients and decorating tips. Many readers will be amused when Rosenberg bares her sweet-toothed soul, telling how she devised her "Yin and Yang of calorie
consciousness": while living on "a strict diet of brown bread, cheese, fruit, nuts,sic and vegetables," she would think nothing of polishing "the meal off with a fat slab of cheesecake." But despite a smattering of recipes with truly novel twists (e.g.,
mustard gingerbread), much here will be found in other cookbooks. Still, "Rosie" is a redoubtably charming alter ego, and while not all of Rosenberg's favorites are originals, the writing is worth the tariff. Illustrated. Author tour; BOMC Home Style and
Better Homes & Gardens Book Club selections.
