get unplugged.

14 Mar

So your BFF’s birthday is coming up and you want a really great cake for her soirée. Brimming with excitement, you skip down to your local bakery…only to find out that they plan to charge you an arm and a leg for said cake. Haven’t they heard it’s a recession??

Instead of buying over-priced baked goods, why not make them yourself? In her new cookbook, Baking Unplugged, Nicole Rees shows you how to make budget-friendly masterpieces without using expensive kitchen equipment (have you seen how much a  stand mixer is lately? Jeez.) Rees uses only items that would be found in almost any kitchen: bowls, spoons, whisks, rolling pins, and measuring cups. And the book is chock full of easy to make recipes like Maple-Frosted Banana Cupcakes, Caramel Pecan Sticky Buns, Cherry-Berry Pie,  and Classic Tiramisu. So go ahead and let out your inner Betty Crocker…without breaking the bank.
