Based on the cover when I picked up this book I expected it to be full of high-effort baking recipes. What I found instead were a lot of recipes with slight ingredient tweaks and a chance to push the boundaries on "the ordinary" that gave them delicious charm. A real plus were the recipes that were "go along with" additions, for example "Egg Salad Sandwich on Greek Olive bread with Roasted Tomatoes" (which was divine!). None of the recipes were of the quick, throw-together category, but none wer ...more

Lavender-lemon scones -- that's the only pastry I ever made from this cookbook. I know that there are some seriously amazing recipes lingering on those pages. The problem is, unless I find myself with three unoccupied days in a row, I never have time to make them.

Recipes are written in small font, wordy paragraphs, and are at least three-tenths of a mile long. And yet, there are some serious omissions amongst all that text. You'd think in a two-page dough recipe, for example, the author would t

Got solely to recreate the rocket muffins that my husband and his coworkers are fans of. I don't find them particularly tasty - they just taste like baking soda to me - but they're a hit, and eaten with a lot of jam that I guess adds to the taste. Plus, they are also intended to be, erm, functional...

Hope to try another couple recipes before returning to the library this time.

Katharine Houpt gave this to me--it's her favorite bakery in Seattle. The biscuits are the best I've ever had, and the croissants are delicious and easy. If you like tasty baked goods, this is the way to go.

One of my all time favorite cookbooks. The recipes are delicious especially the cherry almond scones, challah & potato bread. It's a beautiful book filled with approachable recipes. This is one book I'd love to bake from cover to cover.

One of my favorites. :) I love the blueberry pie recipe, and the bacon, leek, and gruyere quiche. :) The recipes can be a little expensive and/or time-consuming, but they are well worth it!

The pages of this cookbook are sticky, stained, and stuck together---that is how much I use it. I have probably baked more out of this book than any other cookbook that I own.

This is a beautiful book from a really lovely bakery/restaurant in Seattle. Some of the baked goods require a couple of days prep, though, but they're worth it.
