Preview of Autumn/Fall 2020 Cookbooks

This year has been like no other, it has been topsy turvy, to say the least. It makes sense that my preview posts follow that course. I began with dessert first: pies and then cake, now it's time to get to the main course. While I have an entire yearly compilation of cookbook releases outlined in my looking forward to… read more

Let Them Eat Cake!

A short while back I wrote, Were you a pie baker, when pie baking wasn’t cool?. I was excited and overwhelmed by the sheer number of pie cookbooks slated for publication this year. Move over pie cookbooks, cake cookbooks are heading into Dodge. Personally, I am a cake over pie dessert person and this year's crop of cookbooks covering cakes… read more

April 2019 Cookbook Previews

It happens every time. Every month, the anticipation of new cookbooks arriving builds and I am amazed by the "must have" designation I assign to many of them. But in the same measure, I have a tiny wish that so many of the new releases wouldn't be keepers. Why would an avid cookbook junkie say such a thing? It is… read more

February 2019 Cookbook Previews

If I have a review copy, I have… read more
