Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Readers smitten with the rich stuff of Boston's Rosie's Bakery will be wooed by proprietor Rosenberg's assorted recipes and personal revelations. The fixings for calorie-laden cold fudge sundae cake, chocolate fruitcake and brownie cheesecake are interspersed with well-organized information on equipment, methods, ingredients and decorating tips. Many readers will be amused when Rosenberg bares her sweet-toothed soul, telling how she devised her "Yin and Yang of calorie consciousness": while living on "a strict diet of brown bread, cheese, fruit, nuts,sic and vegetables," she would think nothing of polishing "the meal off with a fat slab of cheesecake." But despite a smattering of recipes with truly novel twists (e.g., mustard gingerbread), much here will be found in other cookbooks. Still, "Rosie" is a redoubtably charming alter ego, and while not all of Rosenberg's favorites are originals, the writing is worth the tariff. Illustrated. Author tour; BOMC Home Style and Better Homes & Gardens Book Club selections.

From Library Journal

Rosenberg is the owner of a Boston bakery that has been popular since it opened in the mid-1970s--not surprisingly, since her desserts are rich, homey, and delicious. Many are the type to evoke blissful childhood memories: Chocolate Snowball Cake, Pecan Crunchies, Extra Extra Fudgy Brownies. Unpretentious and unintimidating, this book should appeal to any home baker. For most collections.

Her carrot cake, butter cake, and sour cream chocolate cake recipes are absolutely phenomenal.
GWickman
My family has enjoyed the noodle kugel more than any other recipe - it's better than any other recipe for it that I have ever tried.
Fleur de Lys
I love her stating that the best recipes come from regular people, not necessarily professionally trained bakers.

This is my all time favorite book. I liked that she was strong enough to put such a Title on a book when we live in such a so called Health conscience world. We all have to live a little and with this cookbook you can. I have never had one recipe fail that I've made from this. And if not for anything else buy it for her pie crust recipes and hints. It would make a great wedding gift for a bride as she explains all the necessary hints for baking, but in easy to read language. She doesn't scare you off by making you think you have to be a professional to do the recipes in her book.

Format: Hardcover
Since I lived in Boston for a while I had the distinct pleasure of eating cakes that had actually been made at Rosie's Bakery. Sadly, after a while the quality dropped. For example, the icings started to taste more of shortening than of butter. Now, however, I can reclaim the original favorites in my own kitchen. As the title "All-Butter, Fresh Cream, Sugar-Packed" indicates, these recipes at least stick to using premium ingredients.
Each chapter starts off with some of the things Judy Rosenberg learned along the way, and her explanations for how to make these things work. Little things like lining cake pans with parchment paper, cooling cake layers in pans, etc. If you're a relatively new cook it'll be very useful. If you're an experienced cook it might be worth a glance through to see if there are any tricks you haven't picked up yet.
There are some truly decadent treats in here: this is not a cookbook you should use while dieting! You'll find Rosie's Famous Chocolate Sour-Cream Cake Layers, Queen Raspberry Cake, and one of our favorites, Cold Fudge Sundae Cake, which involves whipped cream and raspberries. In the fruit arena you'll find a Bittersweet Orange Cake with a Lemon Glaze, an Applesauce Raisin Cake, Mustard Gingerbread, etc. You'll even find a few cheesecakes, as well as a handful of frostings and fillings. I think a little more variety would have been nice, but the things that are here are quite good. I'm not entirely sure why there's a cookie chapter here since there's an entirely separate Rosie's Bakery "Cookie Book." It seems a bit redundant, particularly for those people interested in buying both. There are also bar cookies, pies and tarts, custards and puddings, and so on; the custards and puddings are my favorites.

Format: Paperback
I have owned this book for years. It is completely reliable, the recipes are pretty simple, and the results are outstanding. I have had failures with other expert books such as the Pie or the Cake Bibles; Rosie's book has never let me down. This is not aimed at diet-conscious bakers or consumers. But when you want to wow someone with flavor and authenticity, when it's time for a splurge, when you want to bake something that tastes like baked goods used to taste, you can turn to this book with confidence.

Format: Paperback
This is such a refreshing book to read and own. It is organized in the author's own homely style, like a mom tells her daughter - these are the basics you need to know to bake cakes, then cake recipes follow; then cookies, pies and so on. The pages are outlined with pink and white hearts, which takes guts to do! Judy Rosenberg is so herself, and so comfortably, warmly so, that it is a joy to learn from her.

Although I've baked various sorts of cookies I learnt a good deal just from her Basics of COokies section--all cookies don't taste their best fresh out of the oven - some are to be eaten warm, some cold, some the next day. For each kind (drop cookies, cake-like cookies, log cookies, shortbreads) she explains all the basics--oven temperature, baking time, checking for doneness, storing the dough, storing the cookies.

WHERE do you find this sort of thing? I haven't come across any other book that tells you so much, so well. I *know* that any recipe I try from here is going to turn out well, given I don't goof up in my own unique way ;-)

Judy Rosenberg has turned a lifelong love afair with sweets into a way to pay it forward for the rest of us. I have enjoyed using this baking book for a couple of decades. I know that the format has received some slightly negative comments, but I thought the divisions were clever. A section on bar cookies is titled 'Harvard Squares', and if one has read about the origin of the bakery and its location, it is perfect - better than the same old titles. I also enjoy reading why an item was developed and for whom. It's a very personal and caring. Each section has informative overall instructions and hints that are truly helpful for a home baker. My family has enjoyed the noodle kugel more than any other recipe - it's better than any other recipe for it that I have ever tried. I have hundreds of baking books and while some of them collect dust, this one does not.

I bought this for a friend that had admired my copy after I had made the sour cream chocolate cake with raspberry filling and white buttercream frosting. Years ago, in my youth, I lived down the street from the original Rosies bakery in Inman Square. In fact, one of my roommates worked there and often brought home "samples."

This is a great cookbook, full of great dessert recipes. They aren't recipes that you will be using everday. But once in a while when you want to treat yourself or your friends to a real treat this is a go to cookbook. I especially like the chocolate recipes!
