Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“I was always impressed with Chef Shishak’s ability to create simple, tasty pastries. Beach House Baking gives readers the confidence to make easy, yet delicious recipes inspired by life on the water. Packaged nicely with tips and tricks, as well as anecdotes about her favorite beach spots, Beach House Baking will conjure up images of sun, surf and sand. The S’mores Cupcake is a favorite and hits all the flavors of what a beach bonfire dessert should taste like.” –Chef Michael Mina, James Beard Award-winning chef and CEO of Mina Group

    I love to bake. I fell in love with baking long before I fell in

    I love to bake. I fell in love with baking long before I fell in love with cooking, so this book was definitely calling my name!! Now, I love sweets like most people, but I have to admit that I'm definitely more of a savory-type person. I really appreciated the savory side of this book as well as the sweet. The Aged Cheddar, Bacon and Scallion Biscuits were the first to call out my name (Oh, my! You have to try these!), and the blueberry scones are on my menu for tomorrow morning. I know the Surfin' P.B.J. cupcakes are going to be a huge hit with my family, and my girls loved the snicker doodles!!

    On a personal preference side, while I love having a photo for every recipe, the style of the cookbook (type font, large lettering, etc.) reminds me more of a kids cookbook. Not to my taste, but the recipes help make up for that. Also, this is a baking book, so the frozen pops and the beverages--especially the alcoholic ones!--seemed completely out of place.

    Over all, this is a great little baking book that about anyone could find something to enjoy!

    I received a copy of this book from Skyhorse Publishing for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
