In particular, the Nutmeg Sour Cream Cookies, the HoneyPot bars, and the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies are excellent. While the Orgasm brownie is Rosie's Bakery signature item, I think the recipe is a bit lacking. I think Dorie Greenspan's brownie recipes are better.
Rosie Measures the brown sugar in tablespoons instead of cups and I find this extremely cumbersome. I've taken the steps of converting my favorite recipes to weight measurements by ounce to ensure more precision.
An experience home baker will have no problem with this book, as the recipes are classic and the technique is simple. Watch out for the tablespoon measurements and make notes about cups/ounce conversions.
Her recipes look tasty and delish. Some of her recipes are a bit more work than I am willing to commit to. I am slowing down when it comes to baking and cooking after spending over 40 years doing both. I am looking for easier recipes that taste good.
Rosenerg's book does not appeal to my streamlined cooking approach. It's not a bad book, it's not the book for me as I've changed the way I cook. At one time I did make homemade puff pastry and rich multi-layered cakes. Today, I am happy with simpler desserts.
If you wish to bake in fine style, and want to devote the time to serious baking, I'd recommend her book.
As to the recipes you will find recipes such as:
Queen Raspberry Cake
Orange Birthday Cake Bars
You will find one sexually named recipe that I can not post in this review as the review would be censored. Be warned though there is a recipe name with sexual connotations.
There is a interactive table of contents and an interactive index to make navigation easy.
Recommend with caveats given.
