In Baking with Julia (Child, of course) and Desserts by Pierre Hermé, Dorrie Greenspan gave voice to other baking experts while ensuring their recipes worked. Now, in Baking: From My Home to Yours, she steps fully onstage with a collection of 230-plus immediately attractive recipes ranging from breakfast sweets, cakes, and tarts to puddings, custards, ice creams, and crisps. This is homey, eminently doable baking that encompasses the more familiar, like sugar-topped molasses spice cookies, pecan sticky buns, and lemon tart, but also includes the temptingly original, such as Devils Food White-Out Cake, Coconut-Roasted Pineapple Dacquoise, and Toasted Almond Scones. Her cookie selection, which offers the standout Chocolate Malted Whopper Drops, is particularly good, as is her brownie group, a mini-chapter featuring a very edible espresso cheesecake variation.
Greenspan knows her stuff, of course, but it's her droll, anecdotal style (readers learn, for example how a chocolate cake got her fired) and her recipe-making expertise that sets the book apart. Precise descriptions of the baked goods--a pound cake, for example, is said to have a "moist, tightly knit crumb"--help readers understand baking anatomy. Equally exact, and reassuring, are her recipe guideposts--she notes, for example, that rubbing butter into the dry ingredients when making a biscuit recipe will result in "pea-size pieces, pieces the size of oatmeal flakes, and pieces the size of everything in between." With recipe variations and enticing color photos, the book will inspire--and inform--baking novices and experts alike. --Arthur Boehm

I am enjoying the cookbook, however there are some issues, I got this thinking she was a guru in the kitchen....I am learning she has her faults as well, or at least this book.
I have not experienced any of the baking time mishaps other reviewers talked about, I am pretty good about knowing cooking times though. And she does mention that times vary with all sorts of variables. So I always do a smell test.
We shall see how it goes, I plan on making EVERY single recipe!
This is a marvelous read first off, and even if you don't bake, reading it alone is an education in itself. Dorie is an engaging writer and I love how recipes come with possible modifications or alternative methods (I do not yet own a stand mixer and my cakes have turned out fine). And then the recipes themselves...foolproof! I baked 5 things so far (far Breton, french yoghurt cake, lots of ways banana cake, classic brownies, Florida pie) and loved all of them and so did the other people who ate them. The cakes are not show stoppers but they look classy yet humble and taste delicious. In general I didn't have to go out of my way for the ingredients.
Highly recommend. i have bought cookbooks before but I have not pored over them or pursued recipes with such enthusiasm as I have done with Dorie's book.
