The Old Farmer’s Almanac Everyday Baking

Everyday Baking features 118 original recipes by celebrated baker and longtime Almanac collaborator Ken Haedrich. A winner of the Julia Child Cookbook Award, Haedrich may be best known as the author of Pie: 300 Tried-and-True Recipes for Delicious Homemade Pie, which was recently named one of the best baking books of the past 25 years by Cooking Light magazine.

Everyday Baking, with its handy reference section and time-tested advice sprinkled throughout, demystifies the art of baking and will inspire home bakers of all skill levels to make delicious breakfast treats, after-school snacks, and impressive desserts. The easy-to-follow recipes in Everyday Baking don’t demand unusual ingredients or abstract cooking techniques, but rather just a desire to make delicious home-baked goods completely from scratch.

Everyday Baking is available online at Almanac.com or wherever books and magazines are sold.

I love this baking cookbook. All the ingredients are easily found in your pantry. I also love some of the little tips in here — like have warm ingredients when making cookies. I never thought about my eggs needing to be room temperature! They have recipes for things you are actually going to make – like Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars.

I highly recommend checking out The Old Farmer’s Almanac Everyday Baking.

101 Breakfast & Brunch Recipes

With school getting into full swing, every family is looking for ways to start their days off with a quick & hearty breakfast. The newest photography cookbook in the bestselling Gooseberry Patch series, 101 Breakfast & Brunch Recipes, is filled with recipes that fit the bill!

With 4 chapters filled with recipes for every day, from the busiest marathon days to those lazy weekend mornings, it’s one family cooks will find themselves reaching for alongside that first cup of coffee. It’s packed with photos for each recipe, so while they may be out of eggs, they’ll never run low on inspiration.

Some of my family’s favorites have to be:  Johnny Appleseed Toast, Cereal-to-Go (this is a great snack too!), monkey bread, french toast casserole, etc.  I could go on and on and on.  Bill has been planning our weekend breakfasts for the rest of this month.  Like all of my other Gooseberry cookbooks, I love how easy the recipes are.  The ingredients are things you either have in your pantry or can easily get at the grocery store.

If you need a great cookbook, I highly recommend 101 Breakfast & Brunch Recipes!
