This book was recommended to me, since I love to bake. I bought it, and was not disappointed. The recipes are varied, and you can't browse through them without finding lots you want to try. The recipes are not all simple as 1-2-3, but the instructions are straightforward. The results speak for themselves. Your friends and family will be asking for the recipe each time you serve one of these. The Soho Globs, Lemon Pudding Cake, Oatmeal Lace Cookies, the butterscotch brownies called Congo Bars... the list goes on. Get this book and start baking!
I USED TO OWN A RESTAURANT AND THIS COOKBOOK QUICKLY BECAME ONE OF MY MOST USED. THE RECIPES ARE UNDERSTANDABLE AND WRITTEN WITH HUMOR. THE BANANA CUSTARD PIE WAS ONE OF MY HOTTEST SELLERS (WE MADE EVERYTHING FROM SCRATCH)!!! MY BOOK QUICKLY BECAME STAIN FROM EGGS, SUGAR, AND CREAM (YUM!!!). IF YOU ADORE COOKBOOKS LIKE I DO YOU MUST INCLUDE THIS ONE!
This is the BEST baking book we own. It's so good that several people we know have gone out and bought this book after eating the things we made with it. Usually people just ask for a single recipe, but everything in this book is worth having. All the recipes in this book that we've tried are wonderful - cakes, pies, brownies, cookies... you name it. Her commentary is great too, especially for the novice baker. She has a do-not-fear attitude toward baking that's contagious.
