"Seeming pre-wrapped, with their silver covers, and retro design, you'll want both of these delightful mini-cookbooks [Piece Of Cake and Easy As Apple Pie], not just for your mom, but for your mother-in-law, your sister and your dear old auntie! â?¦ How much information can fit into one of these cuties? Well, these pack a wallop! â?¦ Another thing I like about these books are the easy-to-read steps, and every once in awhile, a good quoteâ?¦ Whether you're interested in a fun new baking book or two, or want to find the perfect gift for mom, these little cookbooks are games."
Laurie Strock, Cookbook Digest, June 2004
"For a short retro romp with rolling pin in hand, all you need is Caroline Barty's Easy as Apple Pie. â?¦ Vintage 1950's photos enhance the retro feel and recall the days before microwaves and instant everything."
Bookpage, May 2004
"For a nostalgic look at the art of old-fashioned cooking, this little book has a lot to offer. â?¦ The vintage photos from the 1950's â?¦ reflect an era that was as American as apple pie. The author tries to get homemakers away from the microwave and back to traditional ways of preparing comfort foods."
