Joy the Baker Cookbook: 100 Simple and Comforting Recipes
Author: Joy Wilson
The Good: 100 recipes, a beautiful photo of each recipe. A huge variety of recipes...cakes, cupcakes, smoothies, pancakes, bacon, chili cheese fries...just a little bit of everything(Maybe too much, see The Bad). And it's enjoyable to read!
The Bad: It's hard for me to find anything wrong with a cookbook, but I wish this book had less variety and more baking. I also think the book could have used a little bit of extra proofreading, just to be sure all the recipes were easy to follow.(I received my book before the release date of the book, so corrections could have been made)
Recipes from the book I've already tried:
and the Araby Spice Cake with Lemon Glaze (not posted, only eaten)
Recipes that Sound Good to Me: Peanut Butter Birthday Cake, Giant Cinnamon Rolls with Buttermilk Glaze, Single Girl Melty Chocolate Cake, "Man bait" Apple Crisp
Thumbs Up or Down: Honestly If I just saw this book in the bookstore...I probably would not buy it. Due to the fact that so many of the recipes I would never care to make, example: Parmesan Seaweed Popcorn, Vegan Chocolate Avocado Cupcakes, Avocado Pound Cake...But I do know a ton of people who would love every recipe in the book...So thumbs up.
