I heard about this book through the Splendid Table and, as usual, Lynne Rossetto Kasper was not wrong. Nicole Rees complies and updates some favorites from her kitchen. As she points out in the introduction, as a professional foodie, she has a million gizmos and gadgets in her kitchen, but it is the simple, no fuss recipes she turns to when she wants comfort foods that make her kitchen whole.

And these recipes provide a lot of comfort!

Already, thanks to Ms. Rees, I have ordered Lyle's Golden Syrup so I can make better ANZAC cookies. For the ones I made from her recipe (pg 99), I substituted Agave Nectar. They were great, but I wonder if the Lyle's will make them even better. Tomorrow, I will find out. I also made her PB&C Brownies today, which define "decadent" in a dessert.

I've used my great-grandmother's spoon to make some of the recipes, and I've used my Kitchenaid mixer on a few. In the short time I have had this book, I have done a lot of baking. With the subzero temperatures we have been experiencing, the baking has been a balm to my soul. My kids are thrilled with the treats, my husband is happy and I am really enjoying myself in the kitchen again. Rees's recipes focus on the simple joys of baking and eating, which is a welcomed break from some of the overly complex cookbooks out there.

I can see Baking Unplugged becoming a well-worn family favorite.

No, it doesn't have pictures, but make just one recipe from this book and you'll have blind faith in every other one, and rightly so. The Guinness stout chocolate cake became my boyfriend's favorite cake-- ever-- until I made the chocolate cake with caramel whipped cream. And that caramel! I make it for everything that I can possibly top with smoky caramel sauce. The brownie scones, the oatmeal crisp-chocolate sandwiches...absolutely everything i've made from this book has been a roaring success.

I'm not someone who buys a lot of cookbooks, but after reading the reviews for this one I decided to go for it, and I am so glad that I did! I love it! I was glad that I had read a review that said there were no pictures, so I was prepared for this, but once you read the cookbook she describes the food so well I don't even miss the photos. I've made several of the recipes, from popovers to strawberry pie to peanut butter and molasses cookies, and ever single one has been delicious. I've been proud to share them with friends and family, and plan to eventually make my way through the whole book. I have been recommending this book to people so often in real life, I decided it was about time I got on here and wrote a review.

I bought this to console myself over my disappointment with the Baked cookbook - I wish I had just bought this in the first place. The recipes are simple yet delicious; nothing extremely fancy or difficult, but many recipes are nice enough that I can serve them to company. I only wish there were pictures to accompany the fabulous recipes.

Every recipe I've made has been absolutely delicious and very simple (it's true--no mixer or electrics needed). This is now my go-to cookbook for virtually all my baking, and I trust it implicitly. Can't recommend this highly enough!

This book is EXCELLENT. I checked it out from my local library because I was looking for some exceptionally good yet simple recipes to bake for my new baking business. I wasn't disappointed. It has every type of baked treat you would want to make (cookies, scones, coffee breads, quick breads, tarts, cakes etc. - see the table of contents) and all sorts of great tips on how to produce them. This book will be enjoyed by experts and novices alike. The beginning sections are very useful for their explanation of ingredients, tools and how to read a recipe, and there are a variety of recipes from your basics like brownies or chocolate chip cookies to more unusual ones such as Potato Chip Cookies. Rarely have I seen a cookbook that is so simple yet inspirational. It covers all of those basic recipes you want, but does it in such a thorough and delicious way. There are very few cookbooks where you like and want to try almost every recipe. This is one of them. Best yet, the author explains how to bake without using a lot of fancy equipment like mixers. I do have a counter top mixer, so I plan to continue using it, but I am very interested in paring down on electrical gadgets and just getting down to some good baking. I will be updating my review as I make the various recipes. So far her chocolate chip muffins got rave reviews, and I know from more than twenty years of baking experience that my family will love many other recipes in this book.
