I have a new favorite book.
Yup, I'm an idiot. At least when it comes to baking.
Replace the word idiot, with novice, and you got the real definition. Using these books doesn't make you stupid, it simply means you are not knowledgeable in that field.
As some of you know already, I love to cook, but am not an experienced baker. The last few years I have really given it a go and tried my best. I have to say, I'm getting so much better too. Still, this Idiot's Guides to Baking is perfect for me. It takes you step-by-step, in the easiest possible way, and teaches you how to create the yummiest of treats.
|White Chocolate Blondies|
They were such a hit, they were gone within 48 hours. They tasted like a bar version of a chocolate chip cookie. When I say they were amazing, I mean it!
The hubby, my son and me gobbled these up like they were never to be around again.
After how easy they were to make, thanks to the steps in the book being clearly pointed out, I can't wait to make more goodies!
If you're not the best baker, or even if you're pretty good, but want to try some harder stuff, check this book out. It has easy to intermediate recipes, all understandable and easy to do. You will love it too!
