You all know I am a sucker for a new baking recipe book and this one is interesting. I always try to learn one new thing from each baking book that I read and this one had a cool one- shred your butter using a grater when you want to bake and the stick of butter is not at room temperature! i liked that and the other hints in this book are for regular people baking at home! I liked that!
