Let's start with - so how many pages are there really to a complete collection of the cards for each group? Does it really weigh 7.2 pounds? And, last but not least how many recipes did it say there were?

Ah,.....I am glad you asked all the above. Those were the questions on my mind when I started the search for as complete a set as I could come up with.

Let's start with why 4 stars and not 5.....
I have made the coffee cake, bread and cookie recipes from this collection. The yeast recipes are awesome, the cookie recipes had to be adjusted, played with and tweaked, i.e. the "for the experienced cook/bake" tag. The photos are well presented and give an idea of what the recipe is to look like. In the case of the cookies, when your end results seem to have strayed, the photo becomes the map. A bakers sleuth eye, and bit of determination will lend it hand to fixing the recipe. There is the why of the 4 stars. I like picking a picture from any recipe book, and getting the result promised from that recipe. I find that having to don the Sherlock Holmes hat, reason why the failure, and then fix the recipe, is not my ideal creative time in the laboratory of my kitchen. And I do love to create in the kitchen.

Although, the chief detective baker in me tells me the amounts in the recipe might be off just a tad. I, being the good kid, follow the recipe very carefully to insure a perfect result. The perfect result having failed, I check myself on correct measurements and analyze each amount given in the recipe again. While looking at the photo, weighing each ingredient amount with the experienced baker department, I correct the recipe and achieve the picture perfect result.

So, the faint at heart beware - this one can throw you for a tail spin.
