While I have a lot of cookbooks, there are really only a few of them that I use on any really frequent basis. Most of them are for pleasure reading and idea gathering. I simplify my own approach to baking. One plain white bread loaf can take on a whole new demeanor with a simple liquid substitution. For things like Cream Puffs, well, Choux is pretty much Choux no matter how you cut it — you only need one Master Recipe. It’s the filling, icing, and purposeful presentation that make your own dish unique. For my Savory Spinach Pies, the crust is a plain pie crust mix with cream cheese substituted for some of the fat component. As I’ve said before, we’re not talking rocket science here. Challenge yourself to think, create, and experiment.
So, Recipe Collectors be forewarned, you won’t find that many here. What you will find are the basics along with hints and techniques that you can master and improve upon. Because really, otherwise you’re just collecting Lists of Stuff.
