Maureen: I LOVED this book. What a delicious month.
Kirstin: What’t not love? Baking. Great photography. Interesting recipes.
Maureen: Sometimes, we found that the recipes were a trying a little too hard to be interesting, but all in all, it was great.
Kirstin: And I visited the bakery during the month too. Ella had an enormous sugar high after eating their carrot cake.
Maureen: Although not every recipe was perfect, we know no cookbook is perfect, so that’s okay. That said, we had some really delicious baked goods this month. We ate really, really well and enjoyed almost all of it.
Kirstin: I usually go to Nigella’s Domestic Goddess book for basic cake recipes, but I’m going to be going to this book in future, for sure. And I’m going to have to looking at this book throughout the year to get more out of it.
Maureen: Most excellent.
