I bought this cookbook last year, after the holidays, on sale. Starting in the fall of this year, I started trying several of the recipes. The maple pumpkin pie that I made at Thanksgiving is simply the best pumpkin pie I've ever had. Period. The savory apple and onion tart gets rave reviews from my guests as a first course. The brownie terrine is fabulous. And, oh, the warm strawberry jam scones and breakfast quiche make show-stopper courses at breakfast or brunch.

I'm buying more for gifts this year. It's one of those cookbooks that's really fun to read and inspiring. Makes you want to give the gift of your baked goods to friends over the holidays, or better yet to invite them over.

Highly recommended. Enjoy!

Format: Paperback
A lovely baking book to aid the home baker during the winter holiday time. Recipes included are designed for each holiday: Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, Boxing Day, Kwanzaa and New Year. Also, included are baking tips for more successful baking, and how to incorporate the children into the holiday celebrations!

Sara Perry is an experienced cookbook author with numerous titles celebrating her love for food, holidays and children. Her passion for holiday baking is seen throughout this entire book. With beautiful photographs and descriptions of each holiday, this book is sincerely quite lovely. Each chapter is a holiday, so it is easy to dedicate your holiday planning, by focusing on a single chapter at a time. And do not be confused by the title, remember there are savory delights too!

With the world getting smaller, I find books that embrace different cultures and religions refreshing. It is a wonderful way to celebrate friendships and family when trying to share in one's culture. This is a lovely book that you will need to help create a more lovely holiday season. Pick up a copy today!

Traditions abound in connoisseur and cookbook author Sara Perry's latest endeavor. Filled with time-honored dishes for Thanksgiving, Hanukkah and Christmas, Perry also includes recipes for Boxing Day, Kwansaa and New Year's - everything from Maple Pumpkin Pie and Buckingham Palace Shortbread to Brown Sugar Benne cookies and a Rugelach trio.

But not all is dessert. Perry also offers ideas for breakfast, lunch and snacks, as well as recipes specially created for baking with children. Lots of photos and bold colors make this the perfect holiday gift - if you can part with it.

Format: Kindle Edition
Two huge complaints about this book (the printed version). One is that many of the recipes do not include a photo, but have directions for which a picture would be very helpful. The second is that many, if not most, of the recipes are on more than one page and involve page turning, even for the ingredient list! Very bad design and makes the book very difficult to use.

I don't know about you, but I always like to know what recipes are in cookbooks I'm thinking about buying. I can assure you there's gold between the covers of Holiday Baking: New and Traditional Recipes for Wintertime Holidays, but sadly, the Table of Contents that is available from the Look Inside shows only the holidays, not the individual recipes for each holiday.Read more ›
