Actually, I just promised to explain what I like about it. Then, I decided I needed to write a review essay, then I made some notes, then this project-- blown out of proportion-- fell into the abyss.
So, now, let me declare quickly, simply, perhaps anecdotally, what I find so appealing about Dorie. I find the latter to be tremendously helpful: "Storing: These are best served within 2 days of baking.
If you're going to keep them at room temperature, just cut what you need and keep the remainder wrapped tightly in plastic wrap. To freeze for up to 2 months, wrap the brownies airtight. She offers a wonderful balance between the recipes of M Bittman or A Waters-- which can be too sparse, too flexible-- and recipes that are too rigidly fixed, too focused on preserving and reproducing the chef's product.
Mind you, I find these two extremes appealing and useful, each in its own way. What I admire about Greenspan is her ability to stretch between these poles. She loves brownies and apples, and Baking includes a disproportionate number of recipes for each. I've read complaints about this, but it seems nice and human to me. A reminder that she has a particular perspective, a particular palate. Like most of us. View all 3 comments.
Oct 30, Becky rated it it was amazing Shelves: food-related-reading. I got this book for Christmas- and it's fantastic!
I've been baking with Dorie's recipes for about six months now, and she hasn't steered me wrong yet. It's a great baking book in that it is full of basics and how-to's, but also has it's fair share of beautiful, complex recipes. She has a knack for coming up with techniques that make difficult things shockingly simple.
She's a talented author, writing Julia Child's Baking with Juila, among others. Plus, it has great photos. And I'm a sucker for I got this book for Christmas- and it's fantastic! And I'm a sucker for photos. Sep 20, Daisy rated it really liked it Shelves: cookbooks. I didn't know that Katharine Hepburn was well-known for her brownie recipe. In her tribute to the actress, Ms. Henderson wrote, "I'll always be grateful to Miss Hepburn for making me stick it out at Bryn Mawr and for giving me these rules to live by: 1.
Never quit; 2. Be yourself; 3. Don't put too much flour in your brownies. I thought it was too fancy, meaning fussy recipes. Instead this is comprehensive and tempting, has pretty, helpful photographs.
The recipes are both basic and challenging. I want to make many of the desserts in this book. Almost all of them, in fact. I'll update my review after I've baked something. Ah, good "Pound Cake Pointers. I hate when that happens. What kind of library patrons would do such a thing? Jul 27, Jennifer rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: anyone who loves to bake. This is an amazing book. The quality of the recipes really stands out and the author's detail in explaining the process of baking is insightful and informative.

I just recently I've only made a handful of recipes so far, but I've loved everything. My favorite as yet is the banana chocolate marble cake. I love the number and variety of recipe, including desserts that aren't
