“Seeming pre-wrapped, with their silver covers, and retro design, you’ll want both of these delightful mini-cookbooks [Piece Of Cake and Easy As Apple Pie], not just for your mom, but for your mother-in-law, your sister and your dear old auntie! … How much information can fit into one of these cuties? Well, these pack a wallop! … Another thing I like about these books are the easy-to-read steps, and every once in awhile, a good quote… Whether you’re interested in a fun new baking book or two, or want to find the perfect gift for mom, these little cookbooks are games.”
Laurie Strock, Cookbook Digest, June 2004
