I loved this cookbook so much I bought a copy for myself. The recipes are traditional, good old-fashioned baked treats. Not low fat so you may want to indulge in these on special occasions.

This is a cute little book. The recipes are for a more advanced baker. Also, these are very rich and fattening desserts. No skimping on these treats.

One of the best bakery cookbooks - all the recipes I've tried worked out very well.

This has a lot of traditional recipes, most are easily accessible if you have mastered making crusts.

Nice to read a cookbook done by people who enjoy what they do. The recipes are truly longtime winners from banana bread to carrot cake to chocolate chip cookies. Luscious photos showing the results aranged with vintage americana items accompany the recipes. For many recipes there are notes, tips, and additional suggestions for variations. All very yummy!

One of the best cookbooks out there. I love a cookbook with heavy pages you can turn, great graffics and her vintage backery is the best ever. If you ever go to Savannah, go meet this gal from Southern Illinois and her hubby, Griff. They are the nicest geniune people you will ever meet. Best of luck with the cookbook Cheryl Day!
