Besides Julia Child, this is the best baking cookbook ever. I have tried several recipes. The biscotti are easier than I ever thought and everyone is so impressed. The lemon cake recipe I think has more than 22 eggs and 1 1/2 pounds of butter between the cake, the filling and the frosting and is the most delicious cake ever.

This essential addition to every cooks library is rich with tips, techniques, and the mouthwatering and stunning recipes for which Martha Stewart is so well known. Covering a delectable array of topics from simple to sophisticated, including biscuits, muffins, scones, cookies, layer cakes, specialty cakes, sweet and savory pies and tarts, and pastries and breads, she provides a dazzlingly delicious yet crystal-clear, vividly illustrated repertoire of recipes. There are cakes that are elegant enough for formal occasions, such as showers, weddings, and dinner parties, and basic favorites meant to be enjoyed every day and then passed down through the generations. Every chapter includes indispensable visual equipment glossaries and features vital make-ahead information and storage techniques. Organized for maximum clarity and practicality, the handbook also offers step-by-step how-to photographs that demystify even the most complex and nuanced techniques. These culinary building blocks will turn good bakers into great bakers, and make great bakers even better.

Here, you will find the recipes and how-tos for the popovers you dream about, and for the simple crumb cake that you always want to whip up on Sunday morning, and for the double-chocolate brownie cookies that will make you a bigger hero with the after-school crowd, and for the citrus bars that you could only find in that little bakery thats no longer under the same management. . . . Baking offers comfort and joy and something tangible to taste and savor. We all hope that these recipes provide you with years of pleasure. Martha Stewart

If you're new or not so new to baking, you must read this book, yes read. It's like the title "handbook!" It's extremely informative and useful for people not so good with baking (like me!). Martha gives you techniques of various baking methods. There's pictures, easy and complex recipes. She guides you through each method with her own flair. A must have in any cookbook collection! Thanks overstock for such a great price too!Read More
This book is useful for first time bakers. It introduces many techniques for successful baking. However, some recipes are lacking. The cake recipes do not call for any rising agents, so they come out dense and flat. I would recommend it for practicing many different types of sweets. Otherwise stick with well reviewed recipes from the internet.Read More
