I have watched John Barricelli's appearances on the Martha Stewart Show many times, and on Everyday Food and Everyday Baking. He is a good teacher, and his receipes seem very do-able. Thrilled when his first cookbook was published, I bought it immediately. So far the Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Coconut Cookies is the only recipe I have tried, but they all look delicious.
OMG this book simple in its look without fancy bells and whistles is like a little gem . This person really knows how to bake and you know these recipes are tried ,tested and yummy. So far everything has turned out wonderful , his brownies taste like a brownie but better.
