Good morning! The last few days have been all about food and cookbooks and today is going to be no different. I have been sent several cookbooks recently and I really want to share them all with you! I only write about things I love, and cookbooks are one of my favorite things.
I wonder though, do you have the same problem as I do. I am often taken in by one or two recipes and a whole lot of fabulous photos. But then after getting the book home I realize that the book is filled with many things I do not like or eat, or the recipes are way too complicated and call for many ingredients that I don't want to bother with.
Lick the Bowl Good is not one of those books, I promise you that you will want to make everything in it. The classic home-style desserts are the kind that you might remember your mom making; chocolate cake, pound cake, brownies, and sugar cookies to name but a few recipes that you will find in this book.
Written by Monica Holland, a fellow blogger, Lick the Bowl Good is filled with over 60 sweet treats to share with your family and friends, or just to keep for yourself if you like. Each carefully tested and beautifully photographed dessert will have you itching to pull out your baking pans the minute you open the book.
As you can see I marked a few of the pages that I like and am going to make. As a matter of fact since I received the book I have baked several tasty treats.
Chocolate Zucchini Bundt Cake and the Pumpkin Bundt Cake with Browned Butter Glaze.
When you make the Pumpkin Bundt cake, notice I said when not if, be sure to make an extra batch of the Browned Butter Glaze, you will lap it up it is so good. Try not to be impatient like me, I "melted" my glaze a bit so that I could get it to pour over the cake and frankly it poured right over and pooled at the bottom.

It is actually supposed to look like the cake above. No matter, the cake and the glaze as with everything that I have made and shared is easy, delicious and just like the recipes both my grandmother and mother made for me when I was young.
This cookbook is a wonderful gift for beginners or experienced bakers and I think would make a great Christmas present. In fact I have already ordered a few for friends.
Do you know of Monica and her blog Lick the Bowl Good? If not be sure to pop over and check out her recipes, not only from her own book but from baking clubs that she regularly participates in.
Have a great day!
