In fact, I've got a relative's bridal shower to attend in a few months and I plan to present her with a copy of this book in addition to something from her list. Why include this book? For one thing, the recipes are that good and they are not difficult for an inexperienced cook. They are recipes that every baker should have in her/his repertoire. For another thing, it is a beautiful book with stunning photography of the finished dishes, vintage kitchenware, and pastoral farm settings. And, last but not least, the authors have included something precious: At the end of each season, (that's how the recipes are divided), they have included ruled, blank, full pages designated for your own family heirloom recipes. I plan to write in some of our family recipes before wrapping up the book for giving.
I found it interesting that I recently reviewed another cookbook actually called "Keepers". In it, I was expecting to find great, old-time, tried-and-true recipes--but I didn't find them.Read more ›
It is a beautifully bound hardcover with a definite heirloom keepsake vibe. I love the plate in the front of the book that reads "the first generation to own this book is" with a blank series of lines for you to fill in. There are blank lines at the bottom of most recipes and after each chapter so that you can pen in your own precious seasonal family recipes. This is excellent if you want to give the book as a gift to a loved one and share your own family heritage.
The book is arranged seasonally, winter through fall, to highlight the best that each season has to offer. You will find both classic recipes (do it all yellow cake, banana pudding with vanilla wafers, vanilla pastry cream) and amazing twists (chocolate rocky road potstickers, oatmeal cream pie with ginger cream, cinnamon bun bundt cake). I find that the majority of ingredients are readily available with no special searching or ordering. The recipes are clearly written and many can be made by a novice baker who is detail-oriented. I love the one bowl chocolate almond cake.
I only have one small gripe with the book, and it isn't enough for my to downgrade my five star rating. The nostalgic pictures of these desserts are breathtaking. I wish there were more pictures.Read more ›

i'm not sure when I expected with this book but I found it to be disappointing. I don't think there is a single recipe that I wouldn't waste my time trying.Published 6 months ago by Sms1019
