I was asked to review The Old Farmer's Almanac Everyday Baking cookbook and immediately said 'yes'!
It's a great cookbook, recipes by Ken Haedrich, featuring 118 recipes, baking tips, time-saving advice, step-by-step tips for easy preparation, and beautiful color photos. Cookbook categories include: breakfast baking; quick bread; cookies, bars; sweet pies; crisps, cobblers; cakes for every occasion.
Ken Haedrich developed and personally tested these recipes for Everyday Baking.
Haedrich is a winner of the Julia Child Cookbook Award and author of 11 cookbooks, including Pie, which was named one of the best baking books of the past 25 years by Cooking Light magazine.
If you go to their website, there is a free recipe download.
They sent me two copies: one for me and one for a friend.
I'd rather give one away.
It's really a great little cookbook for the price.
