Book Description

This cookbook is comprised of some of our family’s favorite German cookies and cake recipes. Having lived in Germany for four years as a child myself, I have tried to pass on the love of the country and its traditions to my family. My children are the fourth-generation born in the U.S.A. and have all fully embraced their German heritage.
We would like to share these delicious favorites with you in the hopes that you will enjoy them as much as our family. While many of them are described as Christmastime treats, don’t be afraid to enjoy them year round!

Please note that I do not claim these recipes are 'authentic'. Rather, they are streamlined creations that evoke the feeling of German, Bavarian, and Swiss recipes.

I loved this book. I had been searching for German recipes for ions. My family rarely, if ever, wrote their recipes down and I really wanted to make some of my favorites from the past. I thank the author AND Amazon for making it available.

I, too, lived in germany in the mid 1980s and this book brought back many grand memories. Even if you have never tasted German baking, this book is well worth your time and money. If I was you I would not pass this one up.

...I watched my German wife baked with love and care over the past 32 years. She'd spend a good 2 days solid baking and giving them away to others to brighten their winter day. And I've come to the realization that when I got stationed in Germany, I realized what I didn't know or missed the boat about good cooking and baking. I was missing the big picture.

And this book does not miss the big picture and rather warmly embraces the art of German Baking in truly simplistic way.

The book sent me through a journey back to Bavaria and the re-visiting the quaint but awesome Bakeries filled with the unsurpassed art of presentation. You can scan and choose the specific baked items with care. Do stop by at the "Lebkuchen" or Honey Cookies and try your hand at 2 dozen of the best tasting cookies in 20 minutes. Don't venture far from another favorite of mine: German Apple Cake, apples prepared like no other. Lastly, don't forget a cup of hot coffee to complete your German traditional treat.

My wife could easily commercialize her baking but she prefers not to. The reward comes from giving and this "pay it forward' act endures over the year.

Really good German baking does have many great ingredients but it has as its main ingredients--- love and care that keeps repeating itself.

Stephanie over-delivers in this book of some 32 delicious and captivating recipes.

I'll give this book a well-deserved "5 star" for not only the subject matter but for the experience of rekindling good memories.
