Simple, beautiful cakes. Didn't get a chance to make any, but I did copy down the recipe for sweet potato cheesecake. You know, for when I have nothing to do but cook, mash, and strain a bunch of taters.
11/15/13: made the Sweet Potato Cheesecake for my knitting group last week and it was delish!

The stories behind the bakery are wonderful to read and I'm not kidding, every single recipe is the kind that makes you want to run into the kitchen and start baking. It's similar to the cookbook "Save Your Fork" which is also a tribute to African American women who love to cook and share great f...

I loved this book, but it's definitely not for the calorie-phobic, diabetic, severely lactose-intolerant, and also not for the beginning baker. It contains mostly recipes for items sold by the Brown Betty Dessert Boutique in Philadelphia, and I came very close to hopping a train (Lactaid pills in...

I need to step away from this book! It is January, and like many, I am trying to lose a few pounds. The recipes in this book are loaded with sour cream, cream cheese, butter, and sugar. Looking at the recipes reminds me of the cooking that I grew up with - yummy but not particularly healthy. This...

This was a wonderful little book from the Brown Betty Bakery in Philadelphia which is owned by a mother and daughter. It's small in size, but huge in great pound cake and other yummy dessert recipes. It also has interesting stories about family members.
Like Dorie Greenspan's Baking, you could ea...

I had to return this to the library before I made any more recipes-I only made the Strawberry Letter cake, except I made them into cupcakes. I brought them in for my coworkers and they were a hit!. There was a lot more technique involved than I'm used to, but I rose to the challenge.
Most of thes...

Great book. I loved how unpretentious the recipes were. The amount of pictures was about right- not a slideshow, but enough to paint a picture of the different recipes. I loved how it was half ode to the women in the authors' lives, half cookbook (if you just want recipes, be forewarned). I parti...
