The 100 recipes in her latest book, illustrated with more than 600 helpful photographs, are clear and straightforward, offering virtually guaranteed success. Chapters and recipes contain advice and tips and include basics like brownies made with chocolate, cocoa, and cream cheese; banana bread; beer bread made with Porter or Guinness; chocolate wafer cookies; and a milk-chocolate caramel tart, among other classic American baked items.
