Alison Roman has plenty to celebrate this week as her new cookbook hits number one on Amazon’s bestseller lists.

Roman Sweet Enough: A Cookbook for Desserts, was released on March 28 and debuted at the top of Amazon’s baking cookbooks list. The 304-page hardback book features dozens of “no-fuss” recipes designed to be easy to prepare — and easy to bake.

The recipes are both sweet and savory, with recipes for pineapple upside-down cake, salted lemon pie, a creamy cauliflower galette, and even a tomato pie. Each recipe comes with easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions, color images, and anecdotes about how Roman came up with the recipe and why she wanted to share it.

This is Roman’s third cookbook release, following her best-selling cookbooks Nothing special And Dine in. Similar to the DIY theme of those two releases, says the viral chef, author and media personality Sweet enough is a cookbook for everyone. “Something I hear all the time when I bring up desserts is, ‘I can cook, but I can’t bake,'” she says in the book’s introduction. “Of course I know why people say or think that: conventional wisdom suggests that cooking is wild and free and encourages creativity and improvisation. Desserts, on the other hand, should be neat and precise. Prim, correct, checked. Scientific even. But as someone who would never be described as neat or precise, who is not primitive or decent, who is not a scientist, I reject those feelings.

The publisher’s notes sum it up even more simply: “Alison wrote the book for people who don’t think they have the time or skill to make dessert. Here, the desserts you want to make right away, you can make right away.”

Initial reader reviews are also strong: The book currently has a 4.6 star rating (out of five) on Amazon.com, with more than 81 percent of reviewers giving it a five-star rating.

Sweet Enough: A Cookbook for Desserts is now available as a hardcover book, spiral-bound recipe book, or on Kindle. Amazon’s weekly deal has the hardback book on sale for just $24.50 — 30 percent off the list price.
