Get Into Cooking

bookcover_cookingI love food, especially desserts, but I hate to cook. Yes, I’ve been known to yell at kitchen utensils. Luckily for me, my husband has adopted cooking and baking as a hobby, and made it his mission to bake the perfect pound cake.

It may not be good for my waistline, but the rest of me is thrilled. He even made whipped cream from scratch recently. We had some pound cake and fresh strawberries, so naturally we needed some cream to complete the picture.

If you or someone you know shares his love of cooking, you may find these books instructive. My husband certainly has.

Cooking For Geeks: Real Science, Great Cooks, and Good Food by Jeff Potter


The King Arthur Flour Baker’s Companion: The All-purpose Baking Cookbook

And, of course, where would we be without our old friend Betty Crocker?

The library has many more to help you get inspired. Maybe you’ll be the one to perfect your favorite recipe.

    My youngest daughter, Amanda, has developed an interest in baking and has been experimenting with some of her grandmother’s Hungarian recipes. Elizabeth (my mother-in-law) was Hungarian and a wonderful baker. She would be so pleased to know that Amanda was following in her footsteps. A friend was so delighted by Amanda’s efforts that she purchased a copy of the King Arthur Flour Baker’s Companion Cookbook and mailed it to Amanda’s home in Virginia. My friend is an awesome baker herself and she swears by the King Arthur hotline for baking advice. The company is located in Norwich, Vermont and also offers classes. Here is their number: 1-800-827-6836. Hungarian nut roll anyone?
