The book itself is a binder, so the pages lay flat when open, and can be removed and replaced.
Kathryn E. Etier
Overall, I'd HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who loves to bake or who is interested in getting a start in baking.
Dani Arteri
There are attractive photos of all the recipes, which I love, and the instructions are clear and easy to follow.

Length: 3:48 Mins
I received my Taste of Home baking book and couldn't wait to start baking from it- see my picture under customer images for the Beautiful Swiss beer bread I made, it was delicious. The recipes include both sweet and savory, everything from two ingredients (palmier) to a bit more complicated like the apricot filled bread that needs to be started the night before, everything in between, and all baking levels.

Some very good and helpful parts of the cookbook are the equivalent chart, substitutions chart, and the first chapter on baking basics. Baking basics needs to be read first, so you know what flour, salt, etc they use, and what they mean by different words like the difference between stiff peaks and soft peaks.

With taste of home one isn't getting recipes that take four days to make, fifteen pages of techniques, and a bunch of one use only baking equipment. The ingredients are easy to find, most people will have 75% in their fridge and pantry already and the rest can easily be picked up in almost any market.

The book is pretty to look out, has a ton of pictures showing the end results, there are tips galore, at the beginning, end, and scattered throughout the recipes.

I usually don't like spiral books but with over 700 recipes it almost needs to be, or trying to lay the book out would cause spine damage. One very slick feature (shown on my video) are the page protectors included. Seriously, this is brilliant and should set the standard for all notebook type cookbooks.

Included is a year's subscription to Taste of Home magazine.

But it's all about how the food turns out.

My kids and I love to bake, so we were really excited to receive a copy of the "Taste of Home Baking". From a visual standpoint, it falls under the "food p*rn" category. Hundreds of luscious-looking, full-color photos of decadent treats, oh my! Pretty much any dessert one might want to bake is included, often in multiple variations. If I were rating the cookbook purely on how well it makes me want to try its recipes, I'd give in 5 stars.

The directions are very clear and easy-to-follow, even for my 9 y.o., who is a novice baker.

Unfortunately, the results of those attempts have been a decidedly mixed bag.

Successes:

(1) Walnut-Caramel Sticky Buns on pg. 400. These were *AMAZING* and definitely worth the time spent.
(2) Apple Crunch Muffins on pg. 298. My kids inhaled these.
(3) Chewy Soft Pretzels on pg. 361. I'd never before made pretzels and these turned out well.
(4) Chocolate-Strawberry Celebration Cake on. pg. 419 (pictured in the lower right hand corner of the cover). I was skeptical about this "semi-homemade" recipe that uses boxed cake mix & instant pudding as its base. But I got lots of compliments on it from guests at my daughter's birthday.

Partial Successes:

(1) Orange Brownies on pg. 94. These were yummy but didn't taste at all orange-y.
(2) Morning Glory Muffins on pg. 298. These took 40 minutes to bake rather than the 20-25 minutes specified in the recipe. They also fell apart when taken out of the muffin tin. The taste was good, however.
(3) Vermont Honey Wheat Bread on pg. 330. The resulting loaf didn't look appetizing but tasted good. The leftovers made great French Toast the next morning.

Failure:
(1) Chunky Blonde Brownies on pg. 103. They never baked properly.

Book arrives. I show my husband. He starts to look at it. Next thing I know he is baking Black Forest Brownies AND Chocolate Chip Cookies. Yum! Yahoo! I figure I'll start baking up some goodies that caught my eye the following day since we can't both fit in the kitchen. Well well well, hubby beat me to it! Next day he is starting not only the Pizza Shop Pizzas he's also working on the Hearty Stromboli! Needless to say, I didn't make it into the kitchen that day much to my joy & frustration. The pizza was delicious. The Hearty Stromboli had too much bread/crust to it. Not sure if that's the fault of the recipe or my Husband. He said he couldn't believe how much dough the recipe made.

My turn in the kitchen I decided to make the Home-Style Yeast Bread. Well it came out super light & super crumbly. Not happy with it at all. Since yeast breads are so easy to mess up, it is highly possible that it is my fault. I normally make sourdough bread so I'm not used to fast rising yeast. I also made the Cinnamon Raisin Bread. I liked that a lot better because it was much more dense. I think I didn't let it rise long enough! Ugh! Oh well!

Let's see since I got the book we have also made, Oatmeal Raisin Cookies (these were a disaster totally flat & the second they cooled even a tad they were glued to the cookie sheet it was horrible), Soft Sugar Cookies (these were bland & cake like, but I think it's my fault. I will have to try again), Peanut Butter Cheesecake (yummy!), Simply Fudgy Brownies (Yum!) & many more. I have been flipping through the book while typing this trying to remember everything.

Even though every recipe hasn't been perfect or to our liking, I know we have a great baking book on our hands.
