2013 Airplanes and Dragonflies Holiday Gift Guide: One Bowl Baking (Cookbook) Review and Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 11/10 (Rafflecopter)




School bake sales are coming up soon, along with Fall festivals, events at church, Thanksgiving, Christmas parties, Christmas, New Year's, and more! One Bowl Baking is the perfect cookbook for anyone who loves to cook, and for those who don't! One Bowl Baking streamlines the baking process by mixing everything in one bowl! You don't need to use your hand mixer or your big mixer with the metal bowl and all of the fancy attachments, unless you want to, of course! So don't go to your local grocery store to purchase something for a bake sale or party, just open up the One Bowl Baking cookbook, and whip something great up from scratch! I can't wait to make and try the Rocky Road Fudge Cake, the Apple Crisp mix-in-the-pan Bars, and the Crispy Brown Sugar Shortbread cookies!

Recipe developer extraordinaire Yvonne Ruperti’s new book, ONE BOWL BAKING: Simple, from Scratch Recipes for Delicious Desserts (available from Running Press) is now available to purchase.

Yvonne Ruperti has been baking and cooking for over 15 years, in professional kitchens, test kitchens, and her own bakery. You may recognize her from her three seasons on the Emmy-nominated hit PBS cooking show, America’s Test Kitchen. She is also a writer and currently pens the weekly Chocoholic column for the James Beard award winning food site, Serious Eats.

Over the years, Yvonne realized that when she baked at home, she often condensed steps in a recipe in order to make the process easier, and to avoid washing unnecessary bowls and equipment. Her new book, One Bowl Baking, is all about simplifying baking—not by using cake mixes, but by eliminating extra steps, extra appliances, and extra bowls. No electric mixers, food processors, or other fancy equipment required (perfect for busy moms!). Most of the recipes can even be assembled and in the oven in 15 minutes or less. Some don’t even require a bowl—they’re mixed directly in the pan!

Recipes cover all areas of baking: breakfast muffins and scones, cupcakes, cookies, layer cakes, cheesecakes, tarts, and more. From Sour Cream Breakfast Biscuits to Sweet and Salty Pretzel Crunch Cupcakes, One Bowl Baking is the go-to resource for both classic and unique recipes made from scratch and using just one bowl.

You can purchase One Bowl Baking: Simple from Scratch Recipes for Delicious Desserts, on Amazon.com and it should be available for purchase at bookstores nationwide. Or you can enter to Win a copy below using the Rafflecopter Form! (Giveaway open to Residents of the main 48 continental United States only.) This cookbook would make a great Christmas gift for your mother, aunt, grandmother, friend, or someone who really loves to bake!
