Announcing Event: Baking from a Book

I remember the time when I was a little girl pestering my mom to bake cookies and cakes when we did not have an oven. She somehow managed to do so with her tava and cooker turned in to a baking dish! But given the kitchens we have now with built in ovens we all love baking and posting about it don’t we?

In the past few months whenever I want to bake something new or even bake a bread, instead of running over to food network website, I hop to Champa’s blog. You need recipes for no knead breads? She’s got it! Vegan cakes?? Sure! How about cake decorating? Yup, you can find that too, with step by step instruction. So Versatile is her Kitchen, I could only say yes when asked to host the event, baking from a book this month!

The rules:

Bake anything, I mean anything but it has to be from a book. That includes breakfast(cereals, breads, muffins) to pizzas to Naans to Italian (Eggplant Parm/ Baked Pasta/Bisctotti) to Cakes to everyone’s favorites- cookies.

Think about it, any recipe that you saw in a book that you tried successfully for your loved ones? Surprised hubby or daughter? Any recipe that you saw in a book but never had the chance to bake? Or your baking attempt was a disaster but you fixed it on your own the next time and feel proud about it? Great- Then share the story with me :)

The Baking From a Book event runs from today, August 16th to September 16th.

All entries(multiple entries welcome) must include a link to this announcement page as well as champas’s blog along with source of the recipe( feel free to write more about the book if you want to as well)
