One of the best baking books I have ever used. Has a variety of recipes from breads to muffins to plain old chocolate tip and recipes for Madeleines and linzer cookies. Easy read. Good advice for beginner bakers like myself. Recipes for frostings included as well. Excellent book. Highly recommend it.
