5.0 out of 5 stars Home baking to impress anyone
Reviewed in Canada on 1 July 2018
This is now my favourite cook book for any type of sweet or dessert -- especially if company is coming.
I use it continually.

Every single recipe I've made so far has become a new favourite and company always rave over each of them. Examples of recipes I've made so far include: her pie pastry; the amazing Chocolate Sugar cookies; Pumpkin-Olive Oil Bread; Coffee Blondies; Sweet Dough; Maple-Cinnamon Granola; and a few others.

I mistakenly thought this book was only for a more experienced home baker but most of the recipes that I've encountered are definitely ones that an inexperienced home baker can do if following the recipe. I also appreciate that, for any level of home baker, she gives some excellent how-to advice and some detailed how-to for certain things. For instance, the difference between certain types of pastry and how to make them, complete with a series of photos. And for those interested in creating cakes that go from looking plain to wow, she has provided some detailed information on how you can create a cake that is a thing of beauty, complete with photos -- and it has flavour.

One chapter I didn't even realize was included until I bought the book is on no-churn ice cream! I have a dynamite recipe for one kind of no-churn ice cream and in browsing through her chapter, her recipes look very close to the one I have been making. So I can hardly wait to try a few of hers -- next time company is coming.

She never assumes anything and includes a great intro with pages of how-to tips for baking as well as detailed notes on ingredients. And, for fun, at the end of the book she even has her list of "music to bake by".

By now, I guess you can tell I really like this cook book. You'd be correct.
If you like to make delicious desserts or baked goods for family and friends, especially if you want to impress, this book will make you smile too. And if you buy it as a gift, the recipient will wow you with their creations from this book.
