My Review: Some of these recipes look really delicious and I will definitely be trying several of them out. Just looking at those pictures and reading the instructions has made me hungry.
From Stuffed Strawberries to PB&J Cheesecake Brownies this book has it all. And the thing that makes it all the better? Most of the recipes are super easy and it is easy to get a hold of most of the ingredients. It'd be easier for Americans, but it is still easy for us Brits to find substitutes. Plus there is a converter in the first pages of the book, making it easier for everyone.
This book has given me some ideas of my own too, some things I'd like to try out.
Whether baking for yourself or making gifts this book has perfect simple recipes for everyone. You could even get the kids involved.
Beautiful pictures, easy instructions for everyone, delicious recipes. A wonderfully sweet book for everyone.
