I felt a little bit silly at first buying this book, since I have the other two. I figured that this would all just be variations on a theme, and I was right about that - nothing in here is outside their themes of homey ingredients like bananas, chocolate, peanut butter, caramel. But frankly, I just love having more recipes from these guys! I appreciate that they organized the book by main ingredient instead of by the type of recipe - I think I prefer it the normal way, but it is interesting nonetheless. I will be making two of the recipes in this book over the next week for the holidays.-KatyB
The only thing I would change about this cookbook would be to add more pictures of the recipes. However, it is a minor issue as it does have several wonderful photos and it is a visually appealing book from cover to cover. As for the recipes, they are fabulous! They are easy to follow, most ingredients I have on hand and the recipes I have tried appear to be fail-proof. I have already recommended this cookbook to friends and know that I will use mine often in the years to come!-Susan Brown
We have purchased all three Baked books and have yet to make something bad. The recipes can be a little time consuming at times, but the end product is well worth it. Just made the Holiday Spice cake and it was a HUGE success! The only negative about this book is the way it is organized- I prefer to have the recipes organized by type (cookies, bars, cakes...), this book is organized by the 10 favorite ingredients.-Pammo
