Baking Basics and Beyond



We aren't all FreshTartSteph (or any other cooking/baking goddess who seemingly whips out delishousness as if it's second nature). But with a little time, attention and coaching, we can get better and still wow crowds.

That's what today's cookbook giveaway is here for: Instruction. Pat Sinclair, Baking Basics author (and Minneapolis native!) says you can "Learn these simple techniques and bake like a pro."

What techniques? Oh, you know—how to whip cream, melt chocolate, and dissolve yeast. Pat's many recipes—Dutch Apple Pie, Chocolate Snowballs, Stromboli—are there to help beginner bakers find their way.

This book actually won a Cordon d' Or Gold Ribbon in the Culinary Academy Awards for "Best Baking Cookbook" in 2007, so it's clearly a voice we can trust.

Tell us what meal or baked good you totally failed, and you're entered to win!

Entries accepted until Monday, October 31 at 10 a.m. Winner pulled at random and emailed.
