Nanaimo Truffle Bars

Last week I received a review copy of Simply Sensational Cookies by Nancy Baggett, published by Wiley 2012. Loaded with over 200 recipes ranging from no-bake cookies to the ever elusive macaron, I couldn’t wait to dive in take it for a spin in my kitchen.

Mini-Chocolate Truffle Tartlets

I love to improvise and experiment, sometimes the results are spectacular, other times not so much. Regardless, it always results in a learning experience. Such is the case with todays post.



White Loves

As soon as I read that Laurie and Jules of Tuesdays with Dorie were planning on tackling Baking with Julia, I was overjoyed. Although I was familiar with some of the recipes from this book (I had previously checked it out via my local library.) I didn’t own a copy so, I immediatly place my order and waited with great anticipation for its arrival.

Once they announced registration was open, I submitted my info letting them know they could count on me to bake alongside the rest of the TWD group through this marvelous book.

Baking Unplugged

in Cookbook Reviews

Most of you who have been reading my blog for a while know that I bake and blog because I love it, however what brings home the bacon is my very cool job at Now, Product Managers at the office are always receiving the latest video games, electronic gadgets, etc to review. Us on the tech side well, we have to wait to see if we find any treasures (a very rare occurrence) in the “Free Stuff” box in the lunch room. 😀

So, I thought hmm… I don’t think it would hurt to ask if I could help review some cookbooks. I worked up the courage and told one of my co-workers I was looking to add a cookbook review section to my blog and wanted to know if she could put me in touch with a publisher for some material for me to review.

Fast forward a week or two and guess what? A nice hefty box arrived at the office with some true gems…

The very first book I pulled out of the box was Baking Unplugged, honestly I hadn’t heard about this book nor had I seen it while browsing through the book store. Have I been living under a rock? :(
Hungry for more Baking Unplugged…?
