Simple, beautiful cakes Didn t get a chance to make any, but I did copy down the recipe for sweet potato cheesecake You know, for when I have nothing to do but cook, mash, and strain a bunch of taters.11 15 13 made the Sweet Potato Cheesecake for my knitting group last week and it was delish Guess who is going to make a carrot pie Also the chocolate cookie recipe looks awesome. A Treasure of Memories This unbelievably heartfelt and beautiful book filled with memories from a African American family that out together their favorite recipes is one of the best cookbooks that I have ever read This book contained within it s pages photos of family accompanied with favorite recipes that I will recommend to anyone who wants to enjoy reading as well as trying out these amazing recipes. A Must Have for Any BakerWhat s not to love Beautiful pictures, beautiful story and family history of beautiful women, beautiful recipes A beautiful book The recipes are formatted well and the over all book is very well written Just keep in mind some of the cake recipes are intended to serve 20 This is a book I must have in hardcover Please take a moment to look this book over, you won t be disappointed, it s a winner. I loved this book, but it s definitely not for the calorie phobic, diabetic, severely lactose intolerant, and also not for the beginning baker It contains mostly recipes for items sold by the Brown Betty Dessert Boutique in Philadelphia, and I came very close to hopping a train Lactaid pills in hand to visit the place It s also just as much a family history as a cookbook, which means double the awesome as far as I m concerned Most of the recipes are named for one of the authors relatives, I loved this book, but it s definitely not for the calorie phobic, diabetic, severely lactose

in hand to visit the place It s also just as much a family history as a cookbook, which means double the awesome as far as I m concerned Most of the recipes are named for one of the authors relatives, and there are short biographies of each honoree, with photos My only complaint is that recipes and biographies should have referred to each other, clearly, in all cases And the thing that really stood out, as I read through them, was the common denominator among all these women work Work outside the home, starting with after school jobs and then every single day, while looking after husbands and raising families, except for Sundays, which were for church In other words, this is not a vintage cookbook that harks back to middle class ladies contentedly perfecting their petit fours while the kids are out of the house I didn t realize how many of those I ve seen until I read this one And I also didn t realize or want to admit how much of a wimp I am The authors of this cookbook started this successful bakery while also holding down full time jobs They make me feel lazy.Anyway, my son picked the Strawberry Letter recipe p 53 for us to make It involves pureeing whole frozen strawberries, and trust me on this one Make the puree the day before It took forever probably because I should ve thawed the berried overnight My son enjoyed the process of reducing the strawberry juice on the stove, though apparently it goes through several stages before it gets hot enough to actually start reducing I was busy with other tasks while he handled that Oh, and further note I havestrawberry puree stashed in the freezer, because the process made about twice as much as we needed The cake part involved a full pound of butter, three cups of sugar, and six eggs plus two egg yolks Yes, and flour too I was also pleased to discover that the batter did fit into my grandmother s three normal sized 9 inch cake pans And it was delicious In fact, while it was still a bit warm, the strawberry flavor was almost too intense, even without the strawberry liqueur it called for couldn t find any The flavor calmed down a lot after the cake overnighted in the fridge, but was still wonderfully strawberry full The strawberry buttercream frosting didn t work very well for me, but then frostings rarely do It s a trial, I tell you, being good at baking but rarely getting the frosting right Altogether, the experiment was a great success, and I may make this again towards the end of the month I need to step away from this book It is January, and like many, I am trying to lose a few pounds The recipes in this book are loaded with sour cream, cream cheese, butter, and sugar Looking at the recipes reminds me of the cooking that I grew up with yummy but not particularly healthy This is definitely comfort food at its very best.I made three recipes from The Brown Betty Cookbook The German Chocolate Cream Cheese Brownies, The Apple Brown Betty, and the Sweet Potato Cake with Spiced V I need to step away from this book It is January, and like many, I am trying to lose a few pounds The recipes in this book are loaded with sour cream, cream cheese, butter, and sugar Looking at the recipes reminds me of the cooking that I grew up with yummy but not particularly healthy This is definitely comfort food at its very best.I made three recipes from The Brown Betty Cookbook The German Chocolate Cream Cheese Brownies, The Apple Brown Betty, and the Sweet Potato Cake with Spiced Vanilla Buttercream All of the recipes were great, but the Sweet Potato Cake with Spiced Vanilla Buttercream was different from any other cake that I have tried, moist, and sublime I m saving this recipe for the next special occasion.Many of the recipes have multiple steps so these recipes take time The instructions are easy to follow I did notice one recipe glitch In the Apple Brown Betty recipe, in step 4, it references melted butter, but doesn t tell you how much butter to melt.If you have a cardiologist, a dietitian, or a physical trainer than this probably isn t the book for you Calories per slice are not given, but anyone making a pound cake or cheese cake, probably finds this a welcome relief I will recommend this book to those who love the rich, celebratory American food of our childhood Not enough frosting Made the sweet potato cake Not sure how they expected me to strain the cooked potatoes ended up throwing in food processor Just frosted it and there s not even enough for a naked cake Tastes good though.
