AUCTION: Baking from My Home to Yours


This book is the bomb. It's the bee's knees. It's the shizz. (It's the book I relied upon heavily when doing weekly bake sales for PKD three years ago.) It is chock-full of everything you could want in a dessert book: cookies, quick breads, cakes both simple and fancy, pies, tarts, muffins, ice creams.... None is too fancy or intimidating, and the combination of well-written recipes, full-color photographs, and personal essays scattered about makes this book a joy to sit down with.

Acclaimed cookbook author Dorie Greenspan has a wonderful habit of giving you variations on many of the recipes, as well, so instead of just a creamy basic cheesecake recipe, you get 7 additional variations for the filling AND 4 variations for the crust -- because that's the kind of baker she is.

Dorie is signing a copy of this wondrous tome for the lucky winner.

(You must try the biscotti. And the cranberry-lime galette. And the blueberry-sour cream ice cream...)
