1.Great pics for every recipe---it's hard for most people (especially those new to cooking) to make a new recipe without a pic for a guideline...
2.Helpful hints are included that you can use with other recipes you may already have...
3.Interesting format regarding "getting to know" the author...i.e. family pics and her dog and fiancé etc...makes for enjoyable reading and her style of witty writing is a bonus...
4.Versatility of the recipes---many things can be substituted or added/subtracted without the end result being a catastrophe...For example if you are making cookies for a "black and white" themed party, you can take the recipe from which the cover pic comes from and instead of adding colored sprinkles, just use chocolate ones so you have a cookie to match the theme or use a variety of nut butters to replace the peanut butter in some recipes to add a little variety... Love the fact that the soft chocolate chip cookie recipes you can add different things (more choc chips, toffee bits etc..) once you take them out of the oven.
The cons of course are all mainly falling under the category of taste/texture preference.... For example, if you tend to like your muffins/cupcakes on the lighter texture-side, then maybe some of the ones in this book won't appeal to you...However if you are a fan of that "banana-bread-like" density, you would be loving those recipes... Same thing with sweetness factor etc....It's all subjective to what you like...Doesn't make one wrong or right...just preference... I think most people own many cookbooks and it isn't at all surprising if out of the whole book they only make a few of the recipes in it and just discard the ones that don't appeal to their liking... For example, if you were brought up in a home where mom cooked with onions, garlic and thyme and those seasonings, you might crave comfort foods that contain those things...whereas if someone was brought up where lots of peppers and hot sauce were the norm, you're comfort food might be made up of dishes similarly seasoned...Doesn't make one dish better than the other, just better suited to some tastes... I mention this especially since the author also has a blog in which she shares savory recipes as well. "Spiced right" to her tastes may be bland or overpowering to other tastes... The beauty is that you can take many recipes and use them as a guideline and then "season to taste" so to speak. However, some people are not comfortable with that idea whether it be because of time or money constraints or lack of cooking experience...
In a nutshell, the recipes I used from this book that we liked, we REALLY liked...and the ones we didn't; we REALLY didn't... It just depends on what taste/texture a person enjoys... I am grateful to the author especially for the chocolate chip cookie recipe that was just out of this world flavor-wise and also texture-wise.... Will be using that recipe again and again! Thank you.
What I love about Sally's cookbook is that she took the time to include both cup and gram measurements, which is so helpful to those of us who like to be extra accurate with our measuring. Every single recipe has a beautiful photo to go along with it and the photos are on the opposite (or the same) page as the recipe, so you don't have to go flipping through the book to find the recipe's photo. Sally's recipe instructions are numbered, so it's very easy to follow along and remember where you left off in a recipe as you are going.
I own a lot of cookbooks and I usually find I want to make only a few recipes from each. But I will definitely be trying out every single one of the 75 recipes in Sally's cookbook! The whole book is full of winners.
If you hate long reviews, here's the quick & dirty:
- EVERY recipe has a beautiful picture (so you know what you'll be making and if yours looks right).
- The instructions are straightforward.
- The ingredients are nothing WILD or something you won't be able to find.
- The flavor combinations are never weird or risky sounding.
- Your baking/cooking level is irrelevant. (Anyone can make these recipes and EVERYONE should.)
- Unlike other cookbooks, there are more than just 1 or 2 recipes worth adding to your collection. (You'll easily find 50!)
- Includes seasonal treats, classic treats, breakfast treats & even HEALTHY treats.
- Bottomline: There is simply no reason NOT to buy this cookbook.
- If you don't believe me, go to SallysBakingAddiction.com and try the first recipe you see. Then come back here and read this: I TOLD YOU SO.
Other insanely smart reasons for buying this cookbook:
- Double Chocolate Muffins: what!
- Powdered Sugar Doughnuts: um, YEAH.
- Salted Caramel Rice Krispie Treats: your new favorite thing about life!
- Sweet Peach Pie: hey everyone, meet THE SHIZZ.
- Cinnamon-Sugar Soft Pretzels: just try to stay calm. JUST. TRY.
- GIANT Oatmeal Raisin Cookies: because you secretly adore wearing your fat pants.
- Dark Chocolate Butterscotch Cupcakes: it's like pure evil. for your mouth.
