I Like to Cook invited me to join in the fun of promoting a new cookbook by Dorie Greenspan. It's called Baking -From my home to yours and it's awesome!
I'm not really a baker. I don't have the patience, or frankly the understanding to really do it well. This book is perfect for me. The instructions are clearly stepped out and the photographs are stunning. I will even try to make pie shells again. (I stopped trying years ago when every one was a failure).
This is not a tiny book - It weighs 6 pounds - that's close to 3 kilograms and I'm sure I'll gain more than that just from looking at the pictures. Every recipe is a keeper. In fact, my cousin was over for a visit and after flipping through the book, immediately decided to order one for herself.
When it arrived, I ripped off the wrapping and opened the book at random. The first recipe I saw was a tribute to Katharine Hepburn brownies. What can I say - It was Kismet! I can never resist a good brownie and frankly, I've been hunting for ones as good as I remember my mother's being when I was growing up. Usually I'm disappointed, but not this time. Honestly - I've never tasted a better brownie EVER! It has a crisp, shiny coating and chewy center that never turns to cake. It's so rich you don't need icing!
So, without further ado....the best brownie recipe you'll ever try.
