About the Book: "Stacie Bakes" opens with an introduction and then is followed with baking tips, cake-making tips, a recommended kitchen kit (a run down of Stacie must-haves) and an explanation of her baking terms. The recipes are most tantalizing and unusual. She has taken old standbys and rewritten them for modern use. My favorite of these is her skinny carrot cake. For the gluten free chef she has recipes to meet that need, too.
The book is divided by seasons with a few including: New Year, New Baking Rules, Breakfast Like a Queen, Hello, Summer, Welcome to Winter, Christmas Baking and Gifts.
What I liked about Stacie Bakes: Ms. Stewart's cookbook is most welcoming and personable with old pictures of herself and her family. I feel as though when I read her tips and introduction that she really wants me to succeed in baking her cakes. I appreciate her simple instructions and images, and no matter your cooking abilities you'll find plenty to bake in "Stacie Bakes." This is truly one of my favorite new recipes and I cannot wait to get busy recreating the recipes from my family. No matter your cooking skill or how full your recipe book shelf is, you'll want to add this one.
This book was provided to HammockTracks.com for review.
Not being a great viewer of the interminable amount of reality/cooking shows on television, one was ignorant and similarly none-the-wiser to learn that Stacie "... is the judge for the sweet baking category on Simon Cowell's new series Food.glorious.Food" as well as a Masterchef 2010 finalist. Along with other talents, she is also a DJ.
This book starts with the usual kind of welcome and introduction followed by various run-of-the-mill hints and tips. One "feature" that did stand out was a definition of Stacie's baking terms, such as folding and crumb coat - a simple but welcome thing and something more books should do as not everybody is au fait with every single term that can be scattered about in a cook book. Even terms that might sound fairly obvious, such as "drizzle" are not always understood, or perhaps this reviewer has just had bad luck as a dinner guest where one cook's idea of "drizzling oil" was to liberally coat it as if you were painting a wall.
After reading this book one has been left with a bit of a mixed view of things. Whilst many of the recipes do seem interesting and relatively easy to make in a home kitchen, something just doesn't feel right about the overall packaging and compilation. The photography of the dishes are a bit variable, there is a bit of an overly sweet-saccharine in-your-face personalisation style approach to this book, with many pictures of Stacie in action (holding a cake, scowling at the camera and a rather unfortunate picture of lifting a cake with a face that a dog owner may recognise when they discover that their "plastic bag" being used to help clear up after their dog, who had a bit of a loose tummy, had in fact a hole in it!)
But for the price of this book, if you can get over the quirks and the design and just focus on the recipes, you might get a fairly good deal. This is not one of those books that you glance through to gain inspiration in a sort of half-relaxed way - at least to this reviewer. Fortunately there is a very good index at the end that lets you navigate your way around this book and possibly ignore much of the irritating excesses along the way.
The recipes themselves are easy to read and follow, there is a fairly good selection of pies, puddings, cakes and other baked goods. You might be inspired to get baking...
I cook and bake everyday for my kids and so I was so excited to make something from it. Our favorite? The Beehive chocolate cake. It's hands down one of the best chocolate cakes I've ever made. The instructions are easy to follow.
I love how there are pictures of Stacie throughout the book because I feel like they give a glimpse into her life and how she bakes. I would highly recommend this to anyone who loves to bake. You will not be disappointed!
This is a very accessible cookbook. The directions are clear, the cooking tips are helpful for the novice baker, and book is charmingly organized by season. My favorite chapter was The Valentine's Day chapter - it turns out that, in Stacie's universe, love is sweetest chapter of the year.
I will certainly by baking the Red Velvet Cake this coming Valentine's Day!
This is a really great recipe book. Its very easy to follow and is filled with lots of scrumptious cakes I can't wait to try, especially the meringue covered carrot cake ;)
I would definitely recommend this
