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.
