Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bourbon Brown Sugar Pound Cake is delicious.. but her free recipe blog is better I had my eye on this, but it was in my "Maybe List", and I finally bought it once it was down to $4. It's ok. I might return it, but I did enjoy flipping through it. Heather Baird's blog, Sprinkle Bakes, is full of dozens and dozens of free recipes that are fabulous and more practical. I especially love her Applewood Bacon Shortbread Cookies (they look like bacon, they don't actually contain bacon!). I love the salty/sweet combo, and the book is enjoyable, but I bake at least once a week and I just didn't feel inspired. Her blog is better.

Editorial Reviews

[B]aking blogger Baird (Sprinklebakes) provides a guide to salt textures (coarse, fine grain, flake), a glossary, and a list of online suppliers [and] organizes her recipes by amount of salt; bakers who prefer just a pinch can try treats such as butterscotch budino tiramisu and caramel buttermilk tart with cornmeal crust, while serious salt lovers may turn to the more aggressively seasoned smoke and stout chocolate torte and candied Kalamata olives. Bakers who like desserts with a savory twist will enjoy this cookbook, along with Agatha Kulaga and Erin Patinkin's Ovenly.--Library Journal"Illustrated with sumptuous color photography... a treasury of unforgettably tasty delights!"--The Cookbook Shelf, Midwest Book Reviews
