More than 600 photos, featuring final dishes and steps of preparation, pack the pages of this thorough baking title put out by the well-known home and family magazine team. Chapters begin with iconic recipes, such as apple pie in the “Pies & Tarts” chapter, and Bûche de Noël for “Holiday Baking.” All the basics, including ice-box cookies, angel food cake, and brownies, are covered in the 350-plus recipes. Sections end with “Make It Mine” sidebars, which help cooks customize recipes for baked goods, such as muffins, cinnamon rolls, and streusel pie. “Make it Mini” sidebars show readers how to prepare individual-sized versions of some of the recipes, including Pomegranate Pavlova with Pistachios and Honey, and a strawberry-raspberry rhubarb crumble. Numbered recipe steps, along with a trustworthy tone and straightforward approach, make this a great starter baking book. (Oct.)

Title: Better Homes And Gardens Baking Editor: Jessica Saari Christensen Photographers: Blaine Moats, Jason Donnelly, Kritsada Publisher: Houghton Miffin Harcourt Published: 10-8-2013 ISBN: 13-978-1-118-45326-1 Pages: 528 Genre: Food & Wine Tags: Cooking, Family, Overall Rating: Great Reviewed For: NetGalley Reviewer: DelAnne You hear Better Homes And Gardens and know is going to be done well. Why would a Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook be any different. Better Homes and Gardens Baking: Everything You Need to Know to Bake Like a Pro is just that. Besides the over four hundred recipes and beautiful photographs that have you drooling in anticipation, there are numerous techniques discussed and shown to give an amateur the ability to produce a product that can rival a professional's. Now to discuss those over 400 recipes... Just from a picture I was drawn to make Sticky Pecan Upside-Down Baby Cakes. Let me tell you that these little cakes will be perfect for making uniform serving sizes, that is if you can manage to stop at just one. If that doesn't do it for you try the Make It Your Own Oatmeal Cookies. With a wide variety of optional ingredients you will soon have a new favorite. Discussions on mixing methods, utensils and pan forms, not to mention the results of using the different fat, sweeteners or dairy sources for the different needs of the varied recipes. Better Homes and Gardens Baking: Everything You Need to Know to Bake Like a Pro is so much more than just a cookbook. Buy yourself a copy to keep hand when you want to bake and have everyone ask where on earth you purchased that pie, cake or tart. When they find out you made it yourself they will be asking you for your recipe. What you tell them is up to you.
