Why I am already writing a review is that I have seen a lot of recipe books lately that do NOT tell you what size baking pan to use, or have weird formatting that makes it harder than it should be to see the pan size or the baking temperature. This book makes all of those details easy to see. I like that a lot. It SHOULD be a given, but not lately, not so much... However, there are a LOT if different sized baking pans called for, that could be a good thing or a bad thing depending on how completely your kitchen is outfitted with different sizes of bakeware.
There are NO photos, except the one on the cover. Again, that may or may not matter to you.
I like that the recipes for the tops (crusts - for lack of being able to think of a better word) of the crisps or cobblers, are homemade. I did not want to use the word "toppings", since the author included several whipped cream kinds of toppings. Anyway, the "crusts" are made with (usually) inexpensive ingredients, the kind of stuff you will likely have on hand if you do much "from scratch" baking at all. In other words, the baked-on top (crust) is not just using a cake mix or Bisquick. Again, I find that using a prepackaged stuff in recipe books is increasing common. So, if that IS the way you like your recipes, OR if you really like loads of photos of the final product, this is not likely to be the book you want. I think it looks very good though.
Each recipe starts out with a brief description of the dish.
Has servings and then list of ingredients directions and toppings.
There is no nutritional information and no pictures.
Might be able to substitute some ingredients for a healthier option.
Blueberry cobbler would be our choice as we pick our own and freeze them for winter months and the rest of the ingredients are very healthy.
The crisp recipes I feel use a whole stick of margarine-that is too high of fat content for us to even consider.
Also has a section on whipped cream toppings.
As always Burke has offered up a varied selection of well written recipes using standard recipe writing. Her recipe introductions are fun to read too.
Some of the delicious recipes you will find in her newest cookbook include:
Old Fashioned Cherry Cobbler
Apple Pecan Crisp
Rum Whipped Cream
Almond Whipped Cream
There is an active table of contents making navigation easy.
I may just have to go alphabetical and make each one over the winter and early spring, because I couldn't pick just one as a favorite. As with most cookbooks, there are number of servings, ingredients, directions and of course the "serve with" recommendations. I have added this cook book to my favorites in my digital collection.
