I got this one from the clearance table at the bookstore because my secret dream is to open a bakery and bake breads and muffins and cookies and sell them to the adoring public.
There is so much in this book - muffins, breads, pies, crackers.....There's also some arts and crafts sprinkled in the book - how to's for celebration banners, snack holders, and a chandelier made of marshmallows.
I started with the Honey Nut Bran Muffins and almost right away
found something that irked me.
The instructions tell you to preheat the oven, then a few lines later the recipe tells you to refrigerate the batter overnight. what. and. how.
But! Those muffins were delish! I doubled the raisins and omitted the nuts and they were perfect. I've made them quite a few times since.
I also made the Foccacia Bread, Brown Sugar Chocolate Chip Shortbread and
Icebox Pickles - so easy.
The Buttermilk Rolls were super tasty, and the Bee Sting Honey was a fun new try for us - and we recommend drizzling it on a toasted buttermilk roll with some ooey brie cheese......
I definitely want to try the Apple Brandy Brown Butter Glazed Cake, and helllloooooooo Pimento Cheese Crackers........
