Multcolib My Librarian Darcee: Bake something!
Annotation:Oh Smitten Kitchen how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. 1. pear and cranberry gingersnap crumble. 2. butternut squash and carmelized onion galette. 3. Is it really necessary to go on?
Annotation:Within this book lies a recipe for something like a Hostess cup cake, but fancy. That's really all you need to know.
Annotation:Of all the no-knead bread making books, I remain faithful to Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. They also have Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day, but I've found I'm a peasant loaf sorta gal.
Annotation:I owe the countless 1/4 full bags of alternative flours in my freezer to this book. When your family just can't get excited about beet and quinoa pancakes (which are amazing), the whole wheat chocolate chip cookies will leave them speechless.
Annotation:Full disclosure: I have only ever made the chicken curry pot pie in this book. That said, I've made it countless times and haven't moved past it because it is just that good.
Annotation:This book has a muffin for every mood and more importantly every ingredient. I allow what I have on hand to dictate which recipe I'll make. All is well in the world when I have a batch of muffins in the oven and an extra dozen in the freezer.
Annotation:Did you have any idea you could execute flawless Grand Central cinnamon rolls in the comfort of your own home? It involves a series of steps that took me two days. Those two days were not wasted.
Annotation:I love fruit dessert above all others. This book is divided by season so you can bake with fruit all year round. Bonus points for bringing back the pandowdy and the slump!

I have a fleeting interest in cooking, but my love of baking is solid and true. I enjoy feeling like a pioneer woman when I turn the crank of my sifter and then letting my kitchenAid mixer take over while I post muffin status updates on Facebook. These are the books that are inspiring me to bake something.
