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.
