Dee’s Dishes is a Cookbook…and So Much More.
How many times have you had Pepsi dumped on you? I’m talking completely-out-of-the-blue, shocking-and-sticky, all-over dumped on you. Well, it’s happened to me…more than once!
But, that’s actually not what this book is about…well, kind of. Sit down, grab yourself a coffee, tea, or wine, and dive into my personal stories about food, music, Guam culture, family, and how these elements have intertwined and danced throughout my life, resulting in some AH-MAZING recipes that I’ll share with you. With easy-to-follow organization grouped by Sweet and Savory, I know you’re going to love these dishes! Like Pepsi Brownies, Coconut Candy, Titiyas (flatbread from Guam), Caprese Denisi, my one-pot pasta dish (that I call Seconds Pasta) and more.

Tiara Talk Book Review
*Tiara Talk was given a complementary copy for a completely honest review*
I wasn’t sure what to expect when given a complimentary copy of Dee’s Dishes. At first I thought “okay, it’s a cookbook.” But once I began reading through and turning the pages, I realized it was so much more than a book of recipes! The way this book intertwines personal stories followed by recipes is such a cute idea. It made the recipes seem so much more personal and even though this IS a cookbook, it had me turning the pages just to see what I might find next. I love that the author used such creativity in this book and I appreciate the sentiment behind the stories. I haven’t had a chance to try out a recipe just yet, but the Pepsi Brownies sound like they could quell my ever growing craving for the naughty delight of chocolate. I happily give Dee’s Dishes 5 stars because this isn’t your standard boring old cookbook. Go ahead and dig into Dee’s Dishes, you won’t be disappointed!
