SUGAR, SUGAR: EVERY RECIPE HAS A STORY

Sugar, Sugar: Every Recipe Has a Story

“The mission of the ‘Sugar Mommas’…is to bring readers vintage treats and the stories behind them. The result is a book filled with tempting cakes, pies, cookies, and candies. These ladies don’t always follow the rules, and it’s refreshing to see that their approach to baking comes with a sense of humor.” –The Philadelphia Inquirer

“Part retro, part contemporary and charmingly whimsical cookies, pies and bars share space with candies, cakes and more in such favorites as Gran’s Tea Cakes, Cracked Sugar Cookies, Kentucky Derby Bars, Chocolate Hydrogen Bombs and Lucinda Bells $100 Pecan Pie….The Sugar Mommas dish out helpful hints throughout the book. Did you know that a 9-by-13-inch pan holds 15 cups, a 9-by-2-inch round cake pan 8 cups?” –San Antonio Express-News

Sugar, Sugar offers 100 of the best cake, pie, cookie, bar, and candy recipes from two sassy Sugar Mommas, Kimberly Reiner and Jenna Sanz-Agero, who are on a mission to preserve America’s best sweet treat recipes and the even sweeter stories behind them. As the Sugar Mommas explain, “We drove down memory lane to discover our sugar inheritance, and then dug into everyone else past to find their dusty, torn, and butter-crusted index cards.”

What the Sugar Mommas found was that every recipe has a story. From desserts that accompanied families through good and bad times, to treats perfected by domestic help, to never-before-transcribed sugar concoctions developed from wild imaginations, each recipe conveys the unique personality of the friend or family member who created it.

With plenty of pies worth the lie, cakes to diet for, and better-than-nooky cookies, as well as an assortment of cobblers, crisps, bars, and other decadent confections, Sugar, Sugar is sure to satisfy any sweet tooth.

EXTRAORDINARY CAKES: RECIPES FOR BOLD AND SOPHISTICATED DESSERTS

Extraordinary Cakes Recipes for Bold and Sophisticated DessertsHow to make extraordinary cakes that are as delicious to eat as they are beautiful to behold. Karen Krasne, the “Queen of Cakes”, brings a fresh and contemporary sensibility to special-occasion cakes. Instead of the conventional fondant and gum paste, Krasne uses natural frostings based on chocolate, cream, or butter (which are also easier to make). What makes these cakes showstoppers is their unexpected flavor combinations-take, for example, the Blood Orange Ricotta Torte, the Chocolate Tiramisu, or the Yuzu Tea Cake. These cakes take full advantage of layering-contrasting textures in each bite such as in the New York, New York (chocolate ganache, devil’s food cake, chocolate chantilly, and caramelized apples) or the Beau Soleil (mascarpone mousse, peaches, pralines, and honey-soaked pound cake). Krasne favors vibrant touches like fresh fruit and real flowers, to add flair without being fussy. Each recipes include tips from her twenty years as a pastry chef, and a step-by-step introduction covering basic techniques. Extraordinary Cakes shows how to create amazing cakes that satisfy sophisticated palates yet achievable to make it at home.
