Baking Unplugged Cookbook:
Tired of complicated baking recipes that call for expensive equipment, complicated techniques, and hard-to-find ingredients? Baking, Unplugged comes to the rescue with a collection of simple, back-to-basics recipes for everything from muffins and breakfast pastries to cookies, pies, cakes, and puddings. These are baked goods just like grandma used to make, made from scratch with basic ingredients and standard kitchen equipment. The book includes 114 recipes in all, as well as basic instruction on ingredients, how to read a recipe, and how to set up an "Unplugged Kitchen." Recipe chapters include Treats for the First Half of the Day; Cookies and Bars; Cakes; Fruit Pies, Fruit Tarts, and More; and Creamy Desserts. The recipes include favorites such as Blueberry Muffins, Uncommonly Good Pancakes, Sour Cream Crumb Cake, Peanut Butter Molasses Cookies, Caramel Turtle Bars, Moist Vanilla Pound Cake, Cherry-Berry Pie, Classic Tiramisu, and Anytime Bread Pudding, and many are illustrated in a 16-page full-color insert.
Also, thanks to many immigrants who have come to our shores America’s food personality is constantly evolving. Howard Hillman offers us a taste in his cookbook, Great Peasant Dishes of The World.
