Sweet Reads

I thought it would be fun to share some books I’ve been wanting to bake from. Just some of the sweet reads sitting on my shelf. Well, actually they are on my mantle and on my floor because I am in desperate need of a bookshelf to house them all and keep them cozy.

IMG_2990

They pretty much stay stacked to save space. I can get more stacks on my mantle that way. But you know – the book I want to pull down is always the one on the bottom. Of course. But do I unstack them to get to the one I need? Of course not. I strain and push and wiggle to lift the ones on top and try to inch the one I want out.

It’s never pretty.

Thank goodness all of these books are.

Let’s take a quick peek at them and hopefully you can help me decide which one to use first.

01-tartine

Tartine Bread by Chad Robertson
Photographs by Eric Wolfinger

This is a big, beautiful book of bread. And it scares me a little. I haven’t worked with dough or yeast a lot. But I want to learn. I want to make bread! And this book from the legendary Tartine Bakery in San Francisco is gonna help me. One day.

02-ultimate-cookies

Ultimate Cookies by Julia Usher
Photographs by Steve Adams

Let me just say that this book could just as easily be placed in the art section as it is in the cookbook section. Julia’s cookie designs and attention to detail are absolutely amazing. Her piping work is impeccable and a little intimidating too. But she has lots of pictures and instructions to help you along the way.

03-sugarlicious

Sugarlicious by Meaghan Mountford

Cute treats and fun sweets. This book is full of whimsical projects to that are easy to make and decorate for any occasion. And many of them kids can make, too.

04-handheld-pies

Handheld Pies by Sarah Billingsley and Rachel Wharton
Photographs by Ellen Silverman

Umm… Pies? In my hand? Sold. Tiny treats in any form are hard for me to resist. And so was this cover. The book is divided into freeform pies, structured pies and jar pies. Too cute.

05-pioneer-woman

The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Food From My Frontier by Ree Drummond

Hey Ree – Thank you for including so many sweets in your beautiful cookbook. The Coffee Cream Cake is calling me. But so are all the other recipes. Maybe I should just start at the top and check each one off. If they are as good as the Chocolate Sheet Cake in your first book, I am in trouble.

06-sweet-auburn

Sweet Auburn Desserts by Sonya Jones
Photographs by Deborah Llewellyn

That’s a cover, huh. Completely captivating. I can’t stop looking at it and I think my heart just started racing.
Sweet Auburn Bakery is located in Atlanta and I can’t believe I haven’t visited yet. I must correct that immediately. Oh and stack cakes just moved up on the to-bake list. Oh my. Oh! My!

07-backintheday

The Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook by Cheryl Day and Griffith Day

Look how adorable these two are. This book is from another Southern bakery and it makes me want to jump in the car and head straight to Savannah, GA to visit their charming shop. Turning the pages, each dessert is more tempting than the next. And there’s savories inside, too. Bacon Jam empanadas and the ham and cheese pastry puffs have my name all over them.

08-humphrey

Humphry Slocombe Ice Cream Book by Jake Godby, Sean Vahey and Paolo Lucchesi
Photographs by Frankie Frankeny

With ice cream flavors like Secret Breakfast, Rosemary’s Baby and Fat Elvis … and more than 300K twitter followers, I want to know more about this little ice cream shop in San Francisco. When they say ice cream with attitude, they mean it.

09-joythebaker

Joy the Baker Cookbook by Joy Wilson

Oh Joy. Your book is a total biggie. I remember when we chatted at the book signing I had in Santa Monica and you were just starting it. Can you believe? Look at the amazingness you made. So happy for you! Oh… and those Baked Chili Cheese Fries… help me. P.S. Great arms!

10-milkandcookies

Milk & Cookies by Tina Casaceli
Photographs by Antonis Achilleos

With a title like that, how can you go wrong. Divided by vanilla cookies, double chocolate cookies, oatmeal cookies, peanut butter cookies, sugar cookies, special cookies, family favorites, brownies and bars … milk is definitely mandatory.

11-marshmallow

Marshmallow Madness by Shauna Sever
Photographs by Leigh Beisch

I love this cover!!! Love it. I want to wallpaper my kitchen in it! All I know is marshmallows will be happening soon. I just need a better candy thermometer first and then look out.

12-pie-it-forward

Pie it Forward by Gesine Bullock-Prado
Photographs by Tina Rupp

Pies, tarts, tortes and galettes. Yes, yes, yes and yes! Filled with tons of recipes and a passion to pie it forward, Gesine’s book should make any pie lover happy.

13-divvies

The Divvies Bakery Cookbook by Lori Sandler

I’ve had this book for a little while now and have meant to bake from it way before now. All the recipes are vegan and some are gluten free, too. If you have a need for egg, nut or dairy free, you might want to check it out. You can order online from them, too.

14-cookiepedia

The Cookiepedia by Stacy Adimando
Photographs by Tara Striano

An encyclopedia of cookies. Oh yes. Buttery, chocolaty, fancy, fruity, spicy and nutty cookies fill the pages of this super cute book. It lays flat, too. Love that.

15-homebaked

Home Baked Comfort by Kim Laidlaw
Photographs by Eric Wolfinger

I’ve baked from this book before but I couldn’t help showing it again. It’s really beautiful and one of the few books that I want to make almost everything inside. P.S. I have a recipe in the book, too. Fun!

16-top-pot

Top Pot Hand-Forged Doughnuts by Mark and Michael Klebeck with Jess Thomson
Photographs by Scott Pitts

I didn’t make it to Top Pot Doughnuts when I was in Seattle, but hopefully I can fix that one day soon. I love cake doughnuts and old fashioned doughnuts. Okay, I love any doughnuts. Except filled. Can’t do filled so much.

17-macarons

Les Petits Macarons by Kathryn Gordon and Anne McBride
Photographs by Steve Legato

I love these little cookie confections. I’ve made them a couple of times, but not enough to feel confident with them, so I scooped up this cute book for inspiration.

18-pushuppops

Push-Up Pops from Courtney Dial Whitmore
Photographs Kyle Dreier

Hey Courtney! Thanks for sending me your book. I have my push-up pop containers and I’m ready to go. Can’t wait to play with them.

19-sugarcube

The Sugar Cube by Kir Jensen with Danielle Centoni
Photographs by Lisa Warninger

Twisted treats from the heart of this sweet little food cart in Portland. And yes, those are chocolate chips drizzed in caramel on top of that cupcake. This one looks like it will be fun to dive in to.

20-sugar-baby

Sugar Baby by Gesine Bullock-Prado
Photographs by Tina Rupp

This book is mostly about cooking with sugar instead of baking with it. Working on the stove instead of the oven. And yes, you can make your own rock candy at home. Super excited about that one. The recipes are divided by temperature so a good candy thermometer would be helpful.

21-jenis

Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams at Home by Jeni Britton Bauer
Photographs by Stacy Newgent

I love everything about this book. The topic, the design, the unique flavors, the way the ice cream recipes are photographed. And I would love it more if I owned an ice cream machine so I could make some too. In the meantime, I just read that Jeni started selling some of her flavors at The Fresh Market last week – Yay for us! And you can also order them online.

22-flour

Flour by Joanne Chang with Christie Matheson
Photographs by Keller + Keller

Spectacular recipes from Boston’s Flour Bakery fill the pages of this mouth-watering book. Nutella tarts, chocolate brioche, and brown sugar popovers sound like a good place to start.

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Mary Cook said...

They all look wonderful but I think the first I would want to play with is
Hand held Pies and then
the Tartine Bread book
I love bread and I do bake a lot of it but I am liking the ideas of individual pies of all sorts.

One that is not on your list that I am expecting to arrive soon is
Cupcake Tin Chef. Again individual servings
Thank you

Maria Arabatzis said...

I own some of these books and tested several receipes…”Flour” is in my opinion for the advanced Baker. Wonderful receipes, but they take time. But the good tasting results worth it. “Joy the Baker is so sweet…the way she writes and presents her treats. Nice receipes without to much afford. Nice! “Marshmallow Madness” is so exciting! Didn’t know that there are so many different tastes and shapes of Marshmallows. I also own Rees’ first book and there are so wonderful receipes, not only the Sweet ones! This week I will receive “Push-Up-Pops” (preorderd it 2 month ago), “Home baked comfort” and “Sugarbaby”….
What I finaly want to say is that each of these Books is wonderful in its own Way. Because each one has other treats! And I can recommand them all!

May 2, 2012 04:48 AM

georgia said...

Such a GREAT selection of sweet books! Hard to just settle on one! The Sugar Baby book is already on my wish list! I’d continue with the Tartine Bread (LOVE bread doughs) and I really want to try out the macarons.. so Petits Macarons is next on the list. I’ll summon the good forces of sugar and butter to pick me! pick me! as the winner.

Kimbo Froggins said...

Ohhh it would have to be Sugarlicious by Meaghan Mountford!!
The frog cakes on the cover are just calling my name!!
I’m sure if I “Redd-it” (hehe) I would be making many many things for weeks to come….I am also in love with the mallow Zombies!! a must for my treat or treaters at Halloween my number 2 love in life!! :D

Kylee said...

I’m thinking Divvies because I LOVE cupcakes and the ones on the front look so poufy and fun. And I love sharing cupcake love around, so the egg/dairy/gluten free recipes would be a kick.

May 2, 2012 04:53 AM

Joanne Chang’s Flour Cookbook would be my first choice.

nichola said...

I feel like Dr. Evil biting my pinky, I want them all. haha Handheld Pies certainly looks scrumptious and Flour. I’m a Boston Girl transplanted to the Cape but miss the city. I wish I could take a class at Flour but the book would be a good start. Thank You!

Vivian said...

Marshmallow madness, little 5.5 would think I am god if I made marshmallow. Already think I am great for making macarons, so les petit macaron will be great to look for ideas

Miss Overballe said...

I already own Sugarlicious, Milk and Cookies, Marshmallow Madness, Top Pot Hand-forged Doughnuts and Sugarbaby… But I think I would start with Joy the Baker Cookbook :) (might just have to buy that one…)

I would start with the marshmallow madness classic vanilla marshmallow recipe. I just made it with my sister (and my two month old twin girls) today and it turned out beautifully. I then read the whole book cover to cover because I was so excited. Many more fun marshmallow projects ahead!

May 2, 2012 04:59 AM

Azu said...

I love cookbooks! I want them all! But I’ll start off with the Pioneer Woman Cooks (her recipes are always great), Les Petits Macarons (I’ve always wanted to try my hand at making macarons), and Tartine Bread (I’ve never made bread and would love to learn!)

May 2, 2012 05:00 AM

Oh, what I would do for PIE! And the handheld ones are just too cute. So, Handheld Pies it is. :D

May 2, 2012 05:03 AM

Shannon said...

Definitely the bread book. There’s nothing like a good, time-consuming bread recipe to make you appreciate pretty much anything else you’ll bake! The time and effort spent whipping cream or making mousse or even homemade candy will pale in comparison to the admittedly long sitting, kneading, more sitting, more flour!–process–but the outcome is so much more satisfying! The first time I made bread made me feel like I’d finally become a ‘people’s cook’–yes I could do fun, creative, and delicate things like sugar cookies, cake pops, and twice-kissed meringues, but at the end of the dinner party, there’s nothing like a nice crisp bread and cheese with your after dinner wine–before the cake. (Plus, if you have big baking days and make the bread first, you can snack on that instead of eating all the cookie dough like I usually do!)

May 2, 2012 05:06 AM

Elyse said...

I would go with Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams. It would give me an excuse to buy an ice cream maker!

Ree’s bok and le Petite Macaron are my top 2!

I have Marshmallow Madness, but I haven’t had a chance to make anything out of it yet, so that book would be my first choice.

366
Caroline said...

Wow, they all look amazing! Since I’m having a cooking table at my wedding this summer I’d have to start with Milk & Cookies or Cookiepedia. Sugar Baby looks like fun too! I’m hoping to get the ice cream maker attachment for my Kitchenaid mixer at my shower or wedding, and then I’d definitely want to try one of the ice cream books.

May 2, 2012 05:36 AM

I’m so happy to see I am not the only one who continues to buy cookbooks even though she has so many that she hasn’t touched yet and is dying to bake from……your list is amazing! I’d love to get a few, but for some reason “Handheld Pies” just looks like a must!

Wow, they all look great! If I have to chose, I pick Hand Held Pies and Pushup Pops.

Pushup pops because they’d be great for our kindergarten celebration this month!

Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams at Home…. I love going there (I live less than 60 miles from Columbus), and I think I’ve tried most of the flavors! I would love to try to make them from home!

Oh my goodness! I’d really love to just have them all, but if I had to choose? Hmm.. I’d say the Handheld Pies. After two years my boyfriend just let me know he’s really more of a pie person, and that’s just not one of my specialties…. Yet! Loved the post, I’ll have to go stock up now!

Hand forged doughnuts – but I’d really like to pick one recipe from each cookbook, make ‘em and have a party!

Difficult choice… but Sweet Auburn Desserts by Sonya Jones would be the winner!

I think Milk and Cookies would be my first go-to. Can’t beat a yummy soft cookie with a big glass of milk!
