    My oppion of Baking Unplugged

    Book Review Outline
    Book title and author: Baking Unplugged by Nicole Rees
    Title of review: My opinion of Baking Unplugged
    Number of stars (1 to 5): *** Three stars
    Baking Unplugged is mainly about Mrs. Nicole Rees giving advice on what you might need to make your cabinets and pantries a baker’s kitchen. There are more than you could even image of desserts, treats, breads, and more! Mrs. Rees is great at describing things. She also is great at putting things in order for you to understand. She leads you through the steps. Nicole Rees explains everything along the way which is very nice because sometimes when authors go back and forth to different subjects it confuses people. I am one of the people that get confused. Now when authors make it so that you are not suppose to know what is going on, then I know what they mean. The recipes are not difficult at all, she even states“Just like grandma use to make them.” When I read that I started laughing. Nicole wanted to just give easy and simple recipes to make for the holidays or just for the family. When I found a recipe in this book that sounded good, I went to my kitchen and found all the ingredients and made the recipe. I don’t remember which one it was but it was delicious. I am only fourteen years old and I made it, don’t get me wrong but I thought I’d burn them. The only reason that I didn’t give her five or four stars is because I didn’t really like the book. But I gave her three starts because of the way she describes the recipes. They are great descriptions, epically at my age. Figured out exactly what she was describing and wanting you to know. Just the way she describes things makes you feel like you are right beside her.I have learned that when you are baking you have to pay attention to the time and exactly how much you measure but most of all how much you put in the bowl. So that way you don’t mess up and make it have too mush sugar or oil or chocolate or something of that nature. That is my opinion of Baking Unplugged by Nicole Rees.
