It doesn’t matter if you a baker for the holidays or just someone who bakes from time to time this is a great addition for you cookbook shelf. I really enjoyed the recipes I tried and I loved how easy they are explained. I also like the tips and little make ahead help, which this cookbook offers. The only downside for me was I wish they had more pictures but you can’t have it all sad to say LOL..

You get everything from classic cookies to shortbread, bars, fudge and biscotti, just to name a few. You also get a little of nutrition facts about each recipe so you know what you’re eating. A little note for new bakers, some of these recipe are not quick but if you take your time the end result is great and you’d pound that you did it.

My overall impression of this book is it will be on my cookbook bookshelf as soon as it comes out.
