Christina, your time and efforts are appreciated. I hope you find this worthwhile that even one family got into the kitchen, went to estate sales and found awesome small batch cookware in honor of your amazing goodness you have going. I find myself in awe and thanks that you have made me enjoy this new found art (in my world) of cooking. Also, thanks for a ton of beautiful pictures that I flip through often and salivate like Pavlov's dog. You're a true professional :)
I baked the sugar cookies from this cookbook last night and even though I am a total dork and forgot to separate my egg and used the whole egg instead of just the yolk (never bake while distracted by thunderstorms) the cookies still came out delicious...just a little cakier than I think the recipe intended. I will be trying the recipe again tonight and fingers crossed won't be distracted.
The small baking approach works well for me on several levels. For one, it makes each recipe really, really approachable--meaning, I don't have to be intimidated by multiple cups of flour nor do I have to feel bad if I mess up a batch and have to toss it out...because you're only tossing a dozen cookies instead of three or four dozen. I also like the speed of oven to mouth ratio of the small batches. And I like that most of the recipes don't call for a ton of ingredients and usually all the ingredients are things I already have on hand or can at least get my hands on fairly easily. I just really appreciate Christina's commitment to small batch baking and can say in all honesty that hers are the cookbooks I turn to most often and I look forward to cooking my way through this one, as well.
I loved her Comfort&Joy cookbook, it had meals as well as treats, but that's not to say her Dessert for Two wasn't outstanding. All the recipes I've tried are accurate and easy to make. Now comes more goodies--I frequently visit the land of Gooey Butter Cake (St. Louis, MO) so that caught my eye. But so did the chai bars and chai pudding. I've bought the small pans and this book is broken down by cookware for my convenience. Upside-down Banana cake or Very Vanilla cake must come first, unless I opt to make the cheesecake in a loaf pan or Banana cake with Chocolate Peanut Butter frosting. Or the Chocolate Hazelnut cookies. Argh! The problem is, most ingredients are pantry items on hand. And the small portions can be shared without tempting leftovers. It's win-win-win. Now to pick one...
