I enjoy cooking from this cookbook. The recipes are clearly written and use ingredients that most people have in their kitchens. There are several recipes that are absolutely delicious. I have made many recipes from this book and plan to make more as time allows. I also enjoyed the story behind the creation of this bakery which was another reason I decided to purchase it.

I just wanted to point out that this is the second Greyston Bakery Cookbook, though that doesn't seem to be mentioned anywhere. The first one was published in 1986 by Shambhala Press and is also well worth having if you love to bake, and can find it used (it's been out of print for a while).

I picked up this book because I was touched by the story behind the bakery that inspired it. The Greyson Bakery is all about supporting the local community by providing jobs to people with difficult pasts. I admire the efforts of the bakery and am pleased that the recipes in the book live up to their great vision.

Contained within the book are basics (i.e. whipped cream and butter cream frosting) as well as cakes, tarts, cookies and bars. The creations are all sweet in natural so there aren't any yeast breads, croissants, etc., but there are so many delightful recipes I couldn't care.

I found the recipes to be approachable and well written. Best of all, they were a good mix of more classic/expected recipes like peanut butter cookies, blondies, etc. as well as more unique creations like a maple fig tart, chocolate banana nut cake, and pineapple macadamia upside-down bars. Because of this mix of recipes, I think it would be appreciated both by someone who is looking for a single beginning book to bake from as well as a cookbook collector who is looking to add another great book to the shelf. It caters very well to people who have more traditional tastes as well as those looking for a little something more adventurous.

An important note, however, is that there are only 16 pictures in the book. If you are a more visual baker and prefer a picture with every (or almost every) recipe you would probably prefer Martha Stewart's Baking Handbook, which has an exhaustive number of photos. Overall though the photos in this book are lovely and pique my interest about recipes I might not otherwise think to try.

I really enjoyed this cookbook and think that other bakers, both new and more experienced, will as well.

I am a recipe snob! That said, this cookbook was fantastic! I bought it for a friend who was visiting and proceeded to use five recipes before she left! Everyone of them was EASY to follow, SIMPLE to make, and outrageously delicious! I am now buying another copy for myself and for every friend on my holiday list this year! If you like to make or eat baked goods-this is a must have for you!

I love this book. The recipes (I've made about half of them) are easy to follow and delicious. The socially-conscious philosophy of the Greyston Bakery is appealing, and the book's typography and layout are very attractive. I've given three of these as gifts to friends and family.
