Have cake books, will use them.

Latest additions to my collection!

As anyone who knows me will know I love a baking book.

And look at these two beauties that have managed to sneak their way into my house this month.

I personally love American cookbooks. I think the recipes – even the most ordinary – just have a little bit more to them than classic British recipes. And their cupcakes just seem lighter and more moist than ones I’ve gotten from home-grown cookbooks and websites.

Both of these books have handy conversion tables so you can easily switch the American measurements to UK ones. But, to be honest, just invest in a set of measuring cups and you’ll never look back.

There’s something satisfying about measuring in cups – sort of like a child playing with sand or water and a set of plastic saucepans!

Next on the list is the Miette cookbook and the original Magnolia bakery one.

 

 

Ooh. Look what’s arrived ….!

Yum. Yum. Bread.

Can’t wait to get started on this!

A leaf out of my book …..

Well, today has been a good day! My first blog post and my delivery of two, new cookery books has arrived.

I’m obsessive about cookery books and LOVE getting a new one.

I treat them as some people do a fiction book. I pore over it for hours and hours and any downtime I have is spent rifling through the pages and planning what I’m going to make next.

So, imagine my delight on finding out that at the moment, Amazon has an amazing sale on books – some are 50 per cent off or more and the majority have free delivery too. I managed to pick myself up two little gems and a complete bargain to boot!

And, a day after a placing the order, here they are:

Cookery Book Porn

Tessa Kiros’ Food From Many Greek Kitchens was a steal. Reduced from £25 to £8.75 (hardcover) and Cake Pops – reduced from £15.99 to £5.44.

I’m salivating at the thought of what I may make and will be wishing away the hours until the kids go to bed and I can indulgently immerse myself.
