The Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook

Title: The Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook : More Than 100 Recipes From the Best Little Bakery In the South
Author: Cheryl Day, Griffith Day, Amy Paige Condon
Published: March 6th 2012 by Artisan
Format: Hardcover; Pgs 242
Genre: Cooking

The photographs alone make this cookbook worthwhile.

I love cookbooks that take me back to old kitchens with tried and true recipes - with the smells and tastes of grandma’s house and the simplicity of easier times.

For the most part, they are easy recipes. Occasionally you will run into an ingredient that is not readily available on your standard grocery shelf, but if you are determined to take it on, the Day’s have included a resource page.

I can personally swear by the Sunny Lemon Bars even if I had let someone else read the directions and added the lemon peel. That is what experimenting in the kitchen is all about. Fun times in the kitchen and a delicious treat at the end.

With recipes from their Savannah, Georgia bakery, the book is divided into multiple sections – Cakes, Pies, Cookies, Bars, Savories, etc. so if you are looking for a specific type of treat you can easily find it. The authors have also included “Sweet Notes” that will enhance your understanding of specific ingredients.

This will be a go to book for special desserts that will bring smiles to the faces of all that are lucky enough to be sitting around your table.
