This is my most used baking cookbook! I've made at least ten different baked goods from it, and they always turn out well. Plus, they freeze well which is perfect for me since I keep my freezer stocked for last minute hostess gifts (hello I'm from South Carolina!) or potluck items. I've also experimented using almond flour and rice flour in several of the recipes. Delish!
