Mom's Big Book of Baking

by Lauren Chattman


Big Book of Baking With today's frantic schedules, many moms feel that in order to create warm and fuzzy memories they need to spend hours in the kitchen. Chattman emphasizes that their time—like that of all busy professionals and parents—is precious. The authors don't advocate sacrificing sleep in order to make cupcakes for a child's school party, but they do understand the importance, especially these days, of spending quality time in the kitchen with family and sitting down to delicious home-cooked meals.

Mom's Big Book of Baking: 200 Simple, Foolproof Recipes for Delicious Family Treats to Get You Through Every Birthday Party, Class Picnic, Potluck, Bake Sale, Holiday, and No-School Day by trained pastry chef and best-selling author Lauren Chattman, includes recipes that have been streamlined without sacrificing high-quality results. Her treat recipes range from basic kid-pleasers like Chocolate Milk Pancakes and Best Blueberry Muffins to the more sophisticated Dad's Italian Biscotti, Mississippi Mud Bundt Cake with Espresso-Bourbon Glaze, and White Clam Pizza. Throughout the book Chattman suggests ways to involve kids in all areas of the kitchen, and the recipes in Mom's Big Book of Baking come highly recommended by her own children. Grown-up critics agree. Nick Malgieri, author of Cookies Unlimited and Chocolate, says Chattman's recipes are "simple, quickly made, and bursting with flavor—just the stuff that treasured baking memories are made of."
