Home cooks will find a wealth of useful baking tips and techniques with clear instructions and simple steps for every recipe. This is the kind of cookbook that both beginners and experienced bakers will use endlessly.

My Take on the Book
This was an amazing book with every kind of muffin that you could ever imagine. I was amazed to find muffins that I knew to ones that I thought were very obscure. My family has already made a strawberry and vanilla muffin which was very good. The crazy thing about this is that you could make one new muffin a day for over two years with this book (talk abut crazy).

I have to say that the recipes were easy to follow and I loved the images that were included as they gave you a good picture of what to expect your muffin to look like.

The best part of this book is how vast the recipes are and how different the muffins were in comparison to ones I have seen or tried before.

So pick up this book today and surprise the people in your family, your work or wherever you spend your time with great, homemade treats - you and they will thank you in the end!
