My favorite recipe so far are the sausage rolls - it's worth buying the book just for this recipe!
The lemon bread and butter pudding was a huge hit too.
The hot cross buns, Jaffa loaf, Sticky Toffee pudding cake and Lamingtons are all next on my list.
Carla also has lots of notes and variations for most recipes - which comes in handy when you find out at the last minute
that you've run out of one of the main ingredients. Even recipes for making your own soy creamer or english custard powder!
The instructions are clear and easy to follow and the recipes are laid out well.
The author is from the UK, so there are a couple of recipes that may have hard to find ingredients in the U.S. (custard powder is an example, I did find this at a specialty store because I just had to make the recipe!). I find most of my favorite cook books have some ingredients I don't have in my pantry or that are tricky to find in the regular grocery store. I either don't make those or I find the ingredients online. Most of the recipes use fairly easy to find ingredients. I don't think I own a single cookbook that I like 100% of the recipes. This one has some really great stuff.
As far as being kid-friendly, there are many recipes in here that kids in our neighborhood loved (I like to share). I guess it just depends on the kid. As someone else said, it doesn't make this a bad book, it just make it one that particular reader's family might not get a lot of use out of it. It would be great to be able to see the table of contents. I always like to see that before I buy.
I, for one, give this a huge thumbs up as it has made me a better baker. The Car Tire Cookies will rock your world. Oh and the hazelnut bundt cake recipe was requested by one of my vegan-phobic supervisors. If you only like standard cookie recipes like oatmeal, chocolate chip, peanut butter and sugar cookies there are a few good recipes in here for you. If you like a great variety of baked goods, this book is a must. I hope the bad reviews don't turn people away. You will be missing out on a great addition to you collection.
Now I want to go bake something!!!
First of all, Carla's writing voice is great. She is clear, considered, practical, charming, and warm. Her family and friends are peppered throughout the book, so you kind of get a larger sense of what food and family are to her. Right at the beginning of each recipe, you'll see notations for soy-free, wheat-free, and nut-free recipes, so if you are allergic or intolerant, you can move right on to the next recipe. There is also a handy section in the back with recipes she found to be especially child-friendly. The front has helpful sections on holding a bake sale, presentation, substitutions, troubleshooting, and other tips. So clearly laid out and easy to follow.
The recipes are delicious! They are packed full of notes and variations to increase your repertoire and successes further. I have made and loved sticky toffee pudding cake, oatmeal raisin cookies, savory pinwheels, arugula tart, mini sausage rolls (possibly my favorite), pea tarragon and cream cheese tart, sun-dried tomato and olive pie, tomato and herb biscotti, savory cheese biscuits (oh my god), and savory herbed crackers. Not to mention the pesto, which is my favorite recipe for pesto ever. I have my eye on the rhubarb squares, citrus bundt cake, and the chocolate pie. Carla is a creative, talented cook, and I'm so pleased to own this lovely book.
