So go ahead, find your favorite recipe, and start baking. Your family and friends will thank you for these wonderful home-baked masterpieces.

I was so excited to meet Wendy Paul at one of her book signings! She is a beautiful, talented, sweet woman. I even got to sample some of the YUMMY recipes from these two books. I am craving them just thinking about how good they were.

My b-day is coming soon and I am going to have my hubby make something out of these cookbooks for me :) I love that the recipes are not only super easy but really fast to whip up as well.

These would be perfect with a baking pan for a Wedding present. Or to give as gifts anytime of the year. The recipes are so easy and delicious!
