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.

The Divvie’s Bakery Cookbook – my nephew has a severe dairy allergy and they will be visiting in a few weeks for my son’s graduation. It would be wonderful to have treats everyone can enjoy. Oh! And as it’s only about 30 minutes from my house, I’m headed to Sweet Auburn Bread Co as soon as possible: they serve breakfast!

Charie W said...

I must admit I thought of the Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams at Home by Jeni Britton Bauer, for my Grandparents, because they just got an electric Ice cream maker for my Grandfather’s 86th birthday and soon after made ice cream their 65th Anniversary. They took the homemade ice cream to the Y to share with their buddies in celebration. I would like to give them this book to widen their options so they will make more ice cream celebratory moments that much more flavorful. I also enjoyed that you had The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Food From My Frontier by Ree Drummond, for my mother in law for Mother’s Day this year. She’s been hinting a lot for a new book and I have been researching this one online this week. I love Amazon for letting me take a sneak peek inside. HOWEVER, for me? I have a joy for the french culture and baking, of course, so I would love to pick up Les Petits Macarons by Kathryn Gordon and Anne McBride. This is an adorable collaboration pastry book I would love to sink my teeth into. Thank you for this sweet chance to win a 150.00 gift card to Amazon so that I can pick up all three. I already was inspired to make Cake Pops from your book I found and bought at Christmas last year. I have so much fun making cake pops, and reading your blog. I can’t wait to see what I can do with those macarons.

Alexis said...

So I had that moment where as I would read each title, I’d go “Ooo, I’m going to recommend that one” until I read the next. Over and over. If I had to make a recommendation though I would go with Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook.

It’ll have whatever style of baked good you want (I’m guessing) and I’m all for sweet and simple. :)

As I was reading this post, I was already making my list for Amazon, not knwoing your surprise at the end. I wrote down 15 of them! But to pick one for now I’d say the Tartine book for my hubby.

Karen B said...

I have not mastered pies yet and I really need to devote more time to them so I think the idea of handheld pies or pie it forward would be a great challenge to me and great fun and of course everyone from work would love it when I bring in the creations I make, good or bad.

May 2, 2012 06:53 AM

Ok in no random order I would love to back from first the following:
Pioneer Woman Food from my Fronteir- ok this would be on the very top of the list, I love her food and her blog.
Marshmellow Madness- the cover is very sweet and the recipes would be fun to make.
Sugarlious- I’m a teachers aid at the pre primary so I could see myself making some of these treats with the kids.
Finally Milk and Cookies- my daughters love cookies so this would be a good book for them to read through and choose their favourites.

Oh my! I am jealous! I’d love to cook from the push pops cookbook or pie it forward or really any of them! I will tell you the cinnamon rolls/sticky buns from Flour are spectacular and super easy to make (just take a long time to rise)! Definately worth making though!

They all look wonderful but “handheld pies” seems right with summer just around the corner

I would start with the The Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook!! Everything looks so good, but also simple.

Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream at Home– I live less than 60 miles from Columbus, and I go to Jeni’s whenever I am able to go! I’ve tried most of the flavors, too. I can’t imagine how awesome it would be to make the ice cream at home!

My friend and I were just discussing making pies in muffin tins, so I would start with the “Handheld Pies” book.
