Great suggestion, Patrincia! I almost always “test-drive” cookbooks by taking them out from the library first. (Rose’s latest book was an exception—I knew I would want it!)

If I find myself renewing it again and again, or returning it and then checking it out again, that means it’s time to put it on my book shopping list.

Currently out from the library—Pure Dessert by Alice Medrich (on my to-buy list) and The New Making of a Cook by Madeleine Kamman. The latter is a huge book and not on my shopping list unless I happen to find a used copy very cheap—but, well worth checking out and browsing through! Ms. Kamman is a most knowledgeable lady with lots of good cooking advice.

Rozanne - you are always so helpful!
Colleen - I hope you adjust to your new town quickly… it usually takes me about a year to feel completely settled.

Barbara, if you enjoyed Madeleine Kamman’s big book, you’d probably love another that she did: When French Women Cook (Atheneum 1976). More of a memoir but with recipes.

A newbie to the site and to serious baking . . . though a “seasoned” veteran to eating all maner of baked goodies here and abroad. I got started last holiday season with a few pies, some brownies and cookies. Stepping it up this year with even more.  I started with a shoefly pie and loved it, as did my family—love that strong molasses flavor. I’ve also had some experience with gingerbread houses for an annual local contest. This is the best and most helpful site I have found . . . looking forward to a fun experience!

Im a new visitor to the forum.I have already had help from the other folk on here.I live in australia(great place),im a grandmother and its a long time since ive been cooking much as the family have grown up now and live elsewhere but not far away.Years ago I made things that were nourishing but typical of the times.60s.70s,80, I went to simply no knead bread making classes.Went to icing flower classes ,embroidery,floristry classes Ineeded to take things in ,while I was giving thing out.I felt as I read some of the other stories on the forum ,there are mums like me who now have the time to devote to something new.yes lets make great cakes ,pies and
..I dont know about bread,but I envy any person who can just bake bread without ,simply no knead.You are really nice people on this forum,its a pleasure for me to be part of this wonderful idea

Hello everyone.  I’m new to the sight, from the beautiful Black Hills in South Dakota.  I’ve been baking for years, and have tried many of the recipes in TCB, but will be making my first wedding cake, and first large cake, for my daughter next July.  I’ve loved everything I’ve read on the sight this past week, you are all so gracious and talented!
