    Stunning photos and delicious recipes! She writes easy enough to understand directions that even a novice should be able to use as well as the experienced baker. Ingredient lists were using the best products as possible but not ones that would be difficult to locate in one's local supermarket. I liked this so much after checking it out at my library that I wanted my own copy but was astounded by the astronomical price for a paperback edition-think I'll wait awhile!

    This was an amazing baking book. If you love to bake, I would suggest getting this book. It had tons of delicious looking breads, cakes, cookies, bars and even ice cream recipes. The pictures of the food were awesome and it entice me to make some copies of recipes that I plan to bake later. The author of this book is Sarah Kieffer and she has her own blog that if you liked this book you should definitely want to check out.

I like the beginning introduction where she introduce herself and talk about tips and tricks that she as learn along the way. I also liked that she included a page of Music that she listens to when she bakes. How cool is that. ~April

    I'm not a baker but this cookbook has motivated me to try some of these recipes. This isn't a cookbook for anyone on a diet, thankfully you won't gain weight simply by looking at these very indulgent desserts! As others have said, the design of this cookbook is beautiful and the photos are amazing. There aren't photos for every recipe but I think there are enough for the majority of them. I like that at the end she has music to bake to, which is a unique touch to a cookbook. My only real bone to I'm not a baker but this cookbook has motivated me to try some of these recipes.

Since you will be referencing this cookbook as you cook I can see the pages getting dirty easily and quickly.

    My copy is different--it has a different cover. I think mine is the Canadian version, and I love the cover much more than the one shown above. I think this is a very thoughtful cookbook. I love that there is a picture for each recipe, and like the basic pastry & pie options. It may not be flashy, but it is earthy, and I really like that. There is a no churn ice cream section & a make the basics section, which is nice. But I am huge cookbook fan, and a baker to boot, so I find myself to be picky My copy is different--it has a different cover.

I don't give 5 stars out often, but I do like this!

    I waited so long for a library copy, so this was built to Epic Cookbook status by the time I opened it today. The breakfast baking section was intriguing, especially the creme fraiche scones and danish variations. And then it kind of lost me. I was disappointed that the rest was too much 'seen that, made that' for me. It sounds snotty, but I'm being honest. There are layer cakes, which I don't make often, pies which weren't as interesting as the ones in my pie cookbooks, various no-churn ice cre I waited so long for a library copy, so this was built to Epic Cookbook status by the time I opened it today.

There are layer cakes, which I don't make often, pies which weren't as interesting as the ones in my pie cookbooks, various no-churn ice creams that could have been condensed into a shorter section. I am disappointed. I'll revisit the scones, and take a second look at her cardamom cake, almond coffee cake and coffee blondies, but I wanted inspiration to buy a copy and I didn't get it.

    Don't let the title fool you - this recipe doesn't feature vanilla as a key ingredient in all the recipes. It does have a lot of fantastic recipes including cookies, muffins, cakes, and bars. There are also party cakes which sound fantastic too. My one complaint was that the pictures included don't showcase the recipes as well as they could. Many pictures are from the top down, so you only see the icing (for example) rather than the layers of cake and icing.

    Best baking book ever! Her banana bread is out of this world, and the coffee blondies are to die for. Well worth the buy!

    This book is beautiful from beginning to end. The writing is heartfelt and relatable; the pictures are scrumptious. I'm so glad I have this book on my shelf, and I am not even a baker.
