More About the Author

My newest book "The (Faux) Pastry Chef: How I Found My Baking Fix" is a story of re-invention, perseverance, and overcoming obstacles. It's also an insider's look at the commercial preparation of food. My second book "Home Baking for Profit" is for anyone who bakes and sells or simply wants to learn professional baking tips and tricks.

Ms. Fix began a baking career from her licensed home kitchen and then moved her business into a bakery and café. She later worked in multiple restaurants and corporate R&D kitchens and then returned to school for an MA in writing and food studies. She owns Baking Fix, a culinary business consulting firm, and teaches both business and hands-on baking classes in local colleges and through the Culinary Institute of America (CIA).

As soon as my book arrived I read through the recipes and made a pound cake recipe and a cookie recipe and they were very very good. I was glad that a few of the recipes were for whole wheat flour. My customers have been asking for healthier items especially for breakfast. I made two fast and easy whole grain muffin recipes for the market and sold out. I tried before with other cookbooks but they came out too dry and crumbly. In the book, Mimi explained about using whole wheat so that helped me a lot.

This book has lots of useful information for baking and for selling and its easy to understand. I was afraid to make larger batches but this book explains how. I am thankful she is willing to share her knowledge. Her first book gave me business basics plus inspiration and encouragement to start making money. Now shes showing me how to make even more!

Let me begin by saying if you want some really good dessert recipes, this is a really good book to have. However, I personally have many, many very good and even over the top dessert recipes and that's why I want to improve and expand my own home baking business. I was hoping for more information for resources, laws and regulations and things like that. I still have to buy another book that will help me with the business aspect of having my own home baking business. Maybe her first book addresses my questions, but this one just touches the surface. Again, the recipes are very good and definitely worth having, but that's about all I found this book to useful for. I think the book should be called, Recipes for Your Home Based Business. That's just me. To be honest, I am more confused now because now I have to bake and decide which recipes are better, mine or hers. I already sell good dessert that are really good so it will be interesting.

Mimi's book, "Start & Run A Home-Based Business", propelled me in the right direction. Her current book, "Home Baking For Profit", helped me improve my baking skills...giving me more confidence. And more importantly, it's helped me make more money with less aggravation. The sections on Recipe Development and Product Development were very helpful. I can spend less time while making more money. The recipes are perfect for my business. You should try the Blueberry Crumb Bars, Five Flavor Pound Cake, Maple Walnut Muffins, and Knock-Your-Socks-Off Chocolate Brownies! THIS BOOK IS A MUST HAVE FOR ANY HOME BAKER!!!

This is now my favorite go-to book for baking and business. I took one of Ms. Fix's classes and purchased her new book. I already have the first one. I changed my recipes to hers, and cannot keep enough muffins and cookies on the shelves!

I bought this book because I do a lot of baking for parties ( such as my kids' engagement parties) and for friends, although I do not bake for profit. I felt that if I was going to do large quantity home baking, I would like to learn from a professional, how to be as efficient as possible to maximize my baking output in the least amount of time. I got everything I wished for from this book and so much more. Not only did I get a very, very, wide variety of recipes ( no, she is not just focused on chocolate, although she does have plenty of chocolate recipes such as Tunnel of fudge bundt cake , 6 varieties of chocolate brownies, chocolate marble cookies, and chocolate coconut muffins and more...) but a lot of helpful baking tips as well. Every recipe is accompanied by variations, too.
I guess the biggest surprise to me was how fascinating the book was. It was like taking a course in both marketing and customer service. There were guidelines about kitchen cleanliness and food safety. There were tips to streamline production. There were pointers on gift baskets. There was a chapter on organizing fundraisers and bake sales. I found the book succinct and to the point but loaded with info.
In short, I loved the book so much,that I bought Mimi Fix's first book "Start and Run a Home Based Food Business". I loved that book too even though I have no intention of starting a food business.

Clarification: Although the recipes are for home baking for profit, the recipes in this book are scaled down for use in the home kitchen. For example, Cranberry Apple Bars yield an 8"x8" pan and country health muffins yield 18-24 muffins.

Mimi's book is wonderful! She shares her tried-and-true recipes and gives great advice based on all of her years of experience and research. Once you start reading, you won't be able to put it down until you have tried all the recipes! Thanks, Mimi!

As a New Orleans chef with 25 years experience Mimi Fix is a goddess and a compassionate 'force in the trenches' with tips for the experienced and just beginning food newbie.

Baking is an art and a science and selling it is a completely different expertise. Mimi is an unusual blend of someone who knows both well.

Her recipes are wonderful and worth the price of the book alone!

Enjoy this book and please pick up her Start and Run a Home-based Baking Business
