For a little while now I have been searching for the ideal cookbook As a self confessed foodie I am always keeping an a sharp eye out for cookbooks that can deliver a large range of recipes that are not only simple enough to make, contain ingredients that are easy enough for me to find in my small town, but also can deliver recipes that are delicious I can honestly say that without a doubt Ovenly was that cookbook for me When I was offered to review this title I immediately said yes because for [...]
Two women meet at a book club and end up developing one of the best sweet shops in the country Sounds unreal but that is how these two began They worked, baked, and honed their dishes until they felt it was time to start selling One of them loves salty the other sweet, the mixing of the two perfection in your mouth They started out as home cooks and fumbled along the steep learning curve known as the restaurant industry, which is not known for it s successes Their story is amazing and fun to rea [...]
Ovenly is a baking fiend s best fried in the kitchen I ve been using this cookbook for a few weeks now and have nothing but good things to say.Let s start with the structure of the book PHENOMENAL The book starts off with the tools and ingredients you should have in your kitchen, the beauty of a baking plan, and some handy conversion charts The recipes themselves are broken down into the categories 1 scones and biscuits, 2 quick breads and coffee cakes, 3 muffins, 4 cookies and shortbreads, 5 pi [...]
This was a great book Their recipes are really unique and creative, and I liked that the book included a range of sweet and savory Their hot tarts are an incredible idea The goat cheese quiche is great, and I was really impressed by their brownies and cookies If you re a serious baker, you ve got to check this book out.The only issue I had and it s not really a problem this isn t an everyday book Most of the recipes had several steps, and to really make them worthwhile might require special ingr [...]
I was SO happy I won this book from a giveaway I love baking, even though I rarely have time to do it I usually work off of old standbys, like Joy of Cooking and Southern Sideboards, but I don t really have any modern cookbooks I love the combinations of sweet and salty in this book A lot of the recipes give instructions on making a base and then you can add your own combinations This past weekend, I made the coffee cake base and used apple butter, pecans, and walnuts as my filling The coffee ca [...]
I love the way this book is structured The tools and ingredients section was very helpful, and the way it is divided into types of recipes made a lot of sense While I would like to have seen pictures of every recipe which I find is the best part of any recipe book most of them did have pictures, and the step by step process pages were genius.I would normally skip past the about the author sections in similar books, but in this case, Erin and Agatha s personal histories and anecdotes from their y [...]
Won this in a GoodReads giveaway Not only is it a great cookbook, but it s BEAUTIFUL I could just stare at the pictures all day.
Meh The only thing I liked about this one was the cover Personally, I find the whole layout boring and uninviting for someone who wants to grab a cookbook and get to baking in their kitchen No bueno.
A lot of great instructions and tips for inexperienced bakers and a lot of unique tasty recipes.
Amazing book with wonderfully creative recipes with clear directions Great fun to read and tons of things that are going to be cooked up in my kitchen in the near future.
Previous to getting my hands on this cookbook, I had never heard of Ovenly, an award winning bakery in Greenpoint, Brooklyn USA since I haven t been to New York since I was a kid But flipping through their cookbook, I know that it would be a place that I would love to visit, and visit often.Self taught cooks Agatha and Erin first met through their food focused book club in April 2009 They obviously connected on than just a shared love of books and were soon swapping ideas, testing recipes and r [...]
One thing I learned from a trip to New York City a few years ago is that New Yorkers or maybe it s just the tourists go overboard about bakeries One that might be making a legitimate bid to be the next big NY bakery is Ovenly in Brooklyn A couple of friends, Agatha Kulaga and Erin Patinkin, got together and have turned their passion into what sounds like a very popular place And I was fortunate enough to receive their hot off the presses cookbook from the GoodReads FirstReads program And their s [...]

I won this book in a First Reads contest.This book is really well done Interesting and extensive backstory on the owners of the bakery, great descriptions of baking basics, measurement conversions, etc and fantastic pictures of the finished products I was a little afraid that the recipes would be beyond my level, since they re a famous bakery While I haven t tried any out yet, I read through several of them and, while probably not for beginners, they re easily manageable for novice and higher le [...]

Wonderful recipes, photos and information This is definitely a recipe book you will want to keep on hand The photos are great and drool worthy Not filled with over the top information that the home baker has trouble understanding Just a fabulous recipe book that will be a favorite for years and years to come One of those fabulous books that will end up covered in flour, butter stains and sticky with sugary specks of yummy I received the book for free through First Reads and boy am I glad.
I want to love this book so bad But one line in the introduction is holding me back They had metric weight equivalents for all of the recipes and then didn t include them when their test bakers said they didn t use them WHY WHY WHY.Why would you get rid of something like that Just keep it in, it s not like it would have taken extra page space and they had already done the work to figure them out.Otherwise the recipes are inventive and delicious But ugh cups and tablespoons and teaspoons are not [...]
The first time I leafed through this book I was kind of ho hum about it scones and quick breads and cookies whatever But honestly the recipes are so spot on it doesn t matter that you ve seen these same items a thousand times before These are the ones that should be the standards Don t look for low fat or healthy but there is some damned fine baking in this book Salted chocolate chip cookies alone make this a five star book Pumpkin olive oil loaf backs it up.
I love the combination of sweet and savory, as well as the addition of unusual ingredients The cookbook is also a lot of fun to read There are some slight errors in the book e.g the Savory Rosemary Popcorn refers to bacon fat in the instructions, but bacon fat is not listed in the ingredients Also, it would be helpful to include the cold water test rather than checking color if you don t have a candy thermometer All in all, a very creative and interesting cookbook.
I love this book and the unexpected twists to the recipes The photos are beautiful and the recipes are really simply As a seasoned cook with a chef caterer for a mom, it s nice to have luxurious style recipes that are simply, require few ingredients and can be put together in no time yet look like they took all day.
So many great recipes in this one, and lots of inspiration too The Salted Dark Chocolate Pudding is a crowd pleaser and very easy We ve also loved the Black Chocolate Stout Cake with Salted Caramel Cream Cheese Buttercream Oh, and the Blue Cheese Apple Pie with Toasted Walnuts is excellent too I want to try every recipe
Lovely little cookbook Gorgeous photographs, and that s the big thing I want out of a cookbook other than solid and delicious recipes One thing I like is that they have base recipes for things like quick breads and scones so it s very easy to put your own spin on it So far I ve only made the harvest muffins, but they are excellent and I can t wait to make all the other recipes
I like how this cook book was done The break downs make sense, and the base recipes to start off with are great This is not and easy book, but for those who have some knowledge of the kitchen and how the tools work My one problem my galley was in black and white, and I hope the real print edition is is color at least the pictures of the food.
I did not love this I did not hate it either Generally there are pictures with most of the recipes I did find about three recipes that I wanted to try to make Almost all of the recipes I would LOVE to eat, but as far as making this stuff myself There are too many ingredients and too many steps for an average person to enjoy making these.
The Ovenly cookbook is than a collection of wonderful bakery recipes It is also the story of how two women came together and followed their hearts As I am at such a crossroads myself, it was this story that spoke to me It is not the opening of an awesome bakery that is calling me, but their story gives me courage as retire from one career and seek my next path.
