Review

Carroll Pellegrinelli, About.com Guide
“When I think of homemade gifts, I instantly think of homemade jams and jellies, cookies and spiced nuts. Lucy Baker goes way beyond those gifts in Edible DIY. I've gotten so many cool gift ideas from Edible DIY that I can't wait for the holiday gift-giving season to begin. …If you're someone who needs an excuse for buying this book, I've got one for you. Everyone of us has at least one person in our life who is often giving homemade gifts. Typically, these gifts are for a specific reason, and sometimes they are for "just because". They will be thrilled with this cookbook. You'll be pleased too, especially if your one the many recipients. If you're one of the gift-givers, you deserve this book. Think of all of the people who will benefit from it.”

Cheryl Krocker McKeon, bookseller
“Lucky recipients of yummy treats from Edible DIY will never guess how easy they were to create. … The user-friendly appeal starts with a calendar of occasions and suggested recipes for each. (Even Rosh Hashanah gets a list, with four apple and honey recipes.) …Baker doesn't skimp on quality ingredients, but most of these goodies are economical. She includes mixing directions for a few drinks that deserve their own party, like Cucumber-Jalapeno Vodka and Crema di Limoncello, but stresses that "bottom-shelf" booze works just fine. …As rewarding as cooking from this delightful book may be, it might be smart to buy one for a friend and wait for the "share" part to come back your way. --

Shelf Awareness
Discover:
A cookbook with easy recipes for unusual and delicious goodies to serve or give.”

What’s Cooking column, Tucsoncitizen.com
“Baker, a self-taught cook, has gathered recipes that are inexpensive, easy to prepare, and delicious.  This cookbook should be especially popular with home cooks who like to gift scrumptious treats to friends and family members. … a fun cookbook …a perfect inspiration for holiday giving.”

I have had a lot of success with Lucy Baker's recipes ever since I started reading her now-defunct "Preserved" column on Serious Eats (Lucy, if you read this, can you please start a blog or something? I miss my weekly jam recipe!). I received this book a week or so ago and am already very happy with it - lots of great, creative present ideas that I am eager to try for the holidays. I have some raspberry lime liqueur and ginger liqueur steeping, and I can't wait to make the fig-onion marmalade. For those who like to preserve or give homemade gifts, or just like to have unique, tasty snack foods, candies, liqueurs, and jams around, Edible DIY is highly recommended.

I have renewed this gem of a book 3 times now at my local library. I've put the kabosh on buying new cookbooks as I have over 200 of them and it's getting a little insane. However, I am definitely going to buy this one because it's just so darn good. I've been working my way through the homemade liqueurs and the knock-off of Domaine de Canton is happily mellowing in a cool, dark closet as I type. I've made the raspberry lime liqueur and the spiced pear gin. Next up: Crema di Limoncello and the apple cinnamon bourbon. (I just realized that I must sound like the biggest lush in the world, but I've been savoring my concoctions and giving them away as gifts.)The recipes are simple and easy to follow and the pictures are lovely. I especially like the packaging suggestions for gift giving. I'm eager to start on the food recipes. They all look so wonderful! Thank you, Lucy Baker for compiling some of your best recipes and sharing them with everyone.

I love to make food gifts and most books featured cookies and muffins. I can get those recipes anywhere! Give me a recipe that's simple but impressive, fun, unusual, and unforgettable. That's what this book is filled to the brim with. I just made the dark chocolate covered candied orange peels and they are amazing! My relative/recipients are going to love them. They are really impressive. And what's even better -- the ingredients were easy-to-find and the procedures were easy-to-follow and understandable. It was orange peels, sugar, water, and some Lindt 85% chocolate. Simple! But really good. I am enjoying this book and you will too.

Great photos, easy to follow instructions. Often there are options for ingredient substitution. We made Vanilla Orange Marmalade and it is amazing, next up Marble Fudge! We're sending Christmas boxes filled with DIY goodies to families out of state.

These are all good recipes., but I thought they were probably a little fancy for my tastes.
Some were interesting though.

I picked up this book at the library just before Thanksgiving and there were so many things I wanted to make, I ordered a copy. The recipes are fun, creative, and so far, the instructions seem well-tested and reliable. There is a wide variety of recipes, from nuts and liquers to candy, jellies, and jams. Most are easy and require no special equipment. I've started batches of two different liquers and have picked several other recipes to make as gifts this holiday. I'm looking forward to trying several more over the next few months.

I've only actually made 2 of the recipes out of this book so far (both types of spiced nuts) but I've read it cover to cover probably 3 times already. It's fun and interesting, and it makes me excited for the time when my kid is a little older so that I'll have some free time and we can make these things to give people for Christmas. I originally got it from the library, thinking if there was a recipe or two I wanted I'd just make copies, but I had almost every page marked by the end and decided to just buy it.

The only thing I would change would be to put a picture of the actual food with every recipe. Some have pictures of packaging or decorating ideas instead, where I would really like to drool over the finished product.

I guess if you like a weird combination of foods, this might be ok. But it's not my "cup of tea."
