If You Give a Moose a Muffin
Laura Numeroff
0060244054
January 1991
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
"If you give a moose a muffin, he'll want some jam to go with it." So begins the most logical silliness to be found anywhere--at least since Laura Joffe Numeroff and illustrator Felicia Bond's If You Give a Mouse a Cookie. Readers will follow a young boy and his voracious visitor through a series of antlered antics: jam reveries and puppet shows and big messes. It all makes perfect sense, really, once you stop to think about it. What moose wouldn't want to borrow a sweater when it's cold outside? And why shouldn't the loose button on the sweater remind him of his grandmother? Bond's cleverly detailed, witty illustrations perfectly complement Numeroff's deadpan style. Through just a few deft words and brush strokes, the reader gets a real sense of the unique personalities of the two characters. Children will relate easily to...


Kathleen's Bake Shop Cookbook : The Best Recipes from Southhampton's Favorite Bakery for Homestyle Cookies, Cakes, Pies, Muffins, and Breads
Kathleen King
0312038534


·
 
From Publishers Weekly
These basic recipes will not challenge an experienced baker, but they will frustrate the novice. King, proprietor of a Southampton, N.Y., bakery, presumes a thorough understanding of the terminology and techniques essential to her craft. Instructions are minimal, with no glossary to advise the uninitiated: woe betide the beginner who does not know how to stir the muffin batter without destroying the texture of the finished product or how to knead bread dough. The already skilled, on the other hand, may not be tempted by what are primarily King's versions of classics--brownies, chocolate-chip cookies, French bread, pound cake, etc. (An exception is the more innovative chapter devoted to "Healthy Goodies," which introduces several oat-bran breads and low-fat treats.) Connoisseurs, however--those for whom variations...

From Publishers Weekly
In her no-fuss, straightforward style, Hensperger (The Bread Bible, etc.) expertly lays out the basics for making quick breads in this exhaustive, offbeat book. She offers 150 recipes in all: 100 from her now out-of-print The Art of Quick Breads and 50 brand new. Classic loaves, such as Lemon-Poppy Seed Bread, appear alongside innovative items like Fresh Orange-Oatmeal Bread and Amaretto Nut Bead. Standout muffins include Rye Muffins with Orange and Fennel, Zucchini-Basil Baby Cakes and Orange Chocolate Chip Muffins. Gingerbreads are redolent with spices and unusual ingredients such as stout and peaches. This is not to imply that all of Hensperger's recipes rely on wacky ingredient combinations. She includes plenty of staid recipes like Fresh Apple Coffee Cake and Chicken-and-Mushroom-Filled Cr?pes with b?chamel....

Book Description

King's previous book, Kathleen's Bake Shop Cookbook, is one of the most solid baking books out there; its no-frills—and no-fail—recipes were inspired by the mouthwatering fare served at the author's old Southampton, N.Y., bakery, Kathleen's Bake Shop. Now that King has moved on to Tate's Bake Shop, the treats she's whipping up haven't much changed, as the 100 recipes in this solid work demonstrate. The two books have a lot in common (including identical subtitles); standards like Orange–Poppy Seed Muffins, Ginger Hearts, Chocolate-Chip Cookies and Peanut Butter Squares appear in both. This new work includes some slightly fancier recipes, like Nutella Shortbread Sandwich Cookies, Warm Individual Chocolate Cakes, Mocha Pecan Muffins and Fresh Blueberry and White Chocolate Tart.
