Easy to follow recipes,
This review is from: The Weekend Baker: Irresistible Recipes, Simple Techniques, and Stress-Free Strategies for Busy People (Hardcover)
I love to bake but I prefer recipes that aren't very complicated (a little challenge is fine) and that contain common ingredients so I'm not running around the grocery store trying to find this one item no one has ever heard of. This cookbook has met my requirements!
She has it divided into three sections: the first being quick desserts to whip up for unexpected parties, guests, etc., the second being recipes that you can prepare parts of ahead of time (which she also shows you how to do that with other recipes in other chapters), and the last section are recipes that require a little more time.
At the beginning of the book she lists common cooking tools and ingredients that you might want to stock your cabinets with.
I have made the mini elephant ears which were eaten quickly and this week I am trying the chocolate chip cookies. I love how she explains the baking process in the recipes and I couldn't be happier with this book!
