Baked to Order Cookbook

My first cookbook, Baked to Order, comes out November 17, 2020!

Pinch me — I wrote a cookbook! I’m so excited to share this collection of 60 sweet and savory recipes, each with multiple variations to satisfy every craving.

Baked to Order includes 60 recipes ranging from quick and simple bakes like buttermilk biscuits and spelt and honey oatmeal raisin cookies to ambitious weekend projects like mushroom diamond pastries and sourdough cinnamon rolls. Each recipe also includes variations—flour swaps, filling and frosting alternatives, different shaping techniques, flavor profile tweaks, and mix-in suggestions—to whet your creativity. There’s even a chapter on repurposing leftovers so that nothing goes to waste.

The book also includes color photos for each recipe (beautifully captured by photographer Diana Muresan), in addition to step-by-step photos for some of the more intricate processes.

From chewy snickerdoodle cookies to savory chicken pot pie to decadent chocolate raspberry cake to playful birthday profiteroles, there’s something in this cookbook for every mood and occasion.
