The book is divided into clear sections which makes it easy to flip through as you look through recipes. It's wide enough that it lays open without help on the counter, which is wonderfully helpful. The directions are clear. I do find it annoying that he assumes everyone owns a stand mixer with lots of fancy attachments.

I tried 4 recipes:
Banana Walnut Squares - I used an extra mashed banana instead of the apricot jam. I found them kind of bland, but the banana kept them soft and moist for days and we happily ate them all. I really like his method for lining the pan, easing the entire cake out, then cutting the squares carefully.

Sour Cream Cinnamon Drops - easy, simple, wonderful cakey texture - boring boring flavor. Recipe makes at least twice as much cinnamon sugar as needed. I'll be keeping this recipe.

Dark Chocolate Sables - the dough went together nicely, and tasted good - but it all fell apart when I baked them. The texture was crumbly and dry, the flavor was barely chocolately. Sort of a sadder version of store brand chocolate graham crackers. Threw these away.

Ginger Snaps - Good flavor balance of the ginger and molasses. Cookies spread thinner than I expected. the recipe says bake 15-20 minutes. I pulled the first batch out at 10 and half were burned (if it were my oven, then the other 3 recipes would have gotten it too, right?) The pan that got baked for 7 minutes came out great. This may be partly an altitude thing - but that's a really big adjustment. Expect to make the time-adjusted recipe again. ( )
