A perennial best seller that's been in print for over 50 years, Alaska Sourdough-part valuable historical reference and part kitschy souvenir-now offers more than 95 recipes with even more interesting facts and Alaskan lore for sourdough fans. Written by one of Alaska's most foremost sourdough historians, Alaska Sourdough is a witty and useful primer for sourdough cookery. For decades Alaskans have ordered their lives around their sourdough pots, and Ruth Allman was no different. In this book she shares her own time-tested advice for home cooks and novice bakers, as well as little-known facts and history about sourdough. Sourdough was a staple in pioneer-era Alaska and without it, folks would not survive. Alaska's Sourdough features two types of starters and discusses the nuances of time on the starter that only a pioneer can know. The book then walks the reader through how to keep sourdough alive and the dozens of things that can be made from it-from hotcakes and waffles, to breads, rolls, muffins, and coffee cakes. But what was once utilitarian may seem peculiar today-sourdough baked Alaska? It was the only way to make such novelty desserts in pioneer time, and Ruth's writing offers a charming glimpse back to another era. You'll want to try some of her favorite recipes for such delights as sourdough cakes, doughnuts, cookies, and dumplings, along with accompanying sauces, syrups, and toppings. With an all-new foreword by writer and food journalist Addie Studebaker, this new edition transports you back into a nostalgic Alaskan world filled with comfort, love, fun, and, of course, sourdough.

From celebrated blogger Sarah Kieffer of The Vanilla Bean Baking Blog!
Sara Foster takes the expression ""easy as pie"" seriously. New and experienced bakers alike will thrill to Foster's encouraging approach to tossing together the most delicious made-from-scratch pies. A southern kitchen is unimaginable without pie, says Foster, who grew up on a farm in Tennessee, where many a meal ended with a bubbling pie or cobbler straight from the oven. ""There were many pie makers in my family, and no one ever needed a recipe-they just mixed, rolled out pastry, and baked to perfection,"" she writes. Surrounded from an early age by her pie-baking mother, grandmothers, aunts, cousins, and neighbors, Foster developed a natural passion for pies. Here, reap the rewards of Foster's inspiration: fifty-seven recipes for amazing pies, including the southern classics, each one matched to one of eleven perfect pie crusts. You'll find pies piled with fruit, pies stuffed with nuts, custard and cream pies, icebox pies, tarts and hand pies-and savory pies, too. Guided by Foster's clear instructions and how-to tips, you too will soon be pulling a pie pan of joy out of the oven for every season and taste.
You'll be amazed at what you can do with five minutes and a box of cake mix, a can of sweetened condensed milk, a bag of chocolate chips and any number of ready-to-use ingredients you may already have in your kitchen cupboard. These recipes are fast to pull together, and the results are far more than the sum of their parts. From gooey chocolate treats to nutty surprises, the sweets you'll make will please everyone. (And no one has to know just how easy it was). These recipes are sure to become family favourites.

She guides you precisely through each step in making perfect Parisian macarons and explains simply and clearly her secrets so you can also make macarons like the French.

Dazzle guests with macarons as a basis for chic desserts. Or amaze them with Jill's latest creation of the lightest, sugar-reduced, hot and spicy Tikka Mac'sala or Thai green curry macarons which are sensational either before or during dinner. Suggested wines and speciality teas are suggested for each macaron recipe, along with presentation ideas for weddings, children's parties, gifts plus many other tips.
