This book couldn't have come out at a more perfect time! Recently retired, I've been enjoying spending time in the kitchen, but have gotten bored with regular cooking and baking, so I was delighted by the opportunity to try a new spin on kitchen projects. And this book measures up! It's a cross between cooking and the arts and crafts I did as a kid, and I'm having a great time! It's fun to read, and fun toWas this review helpful?

This book was written for beginners like me, who are intimidated even by cookbooks, since they usually require some base level of knowledge. This one doesn't! The author laid out the basics in a clear, unintimidating and straightforward way that has made me feel a lot more confident. She then spelled out fun recipes that wind up tasting and looking great! I've even tried the section on chocolate-making -- something I never thought I'd be able to do! I'm buying this book as a preChristmas gift for my friends and sisters, so they can use it to make Christmas gifts.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
