Finally, there’s an excuse to put off doing necessary chores and bake instead. Erin Gardner helps procrastinators find excuses to skip the work and bake, bake, bake in Procrastibaking: 100 Recipes for Getting Nothing Done in the Most Delicious Way PossibleGardner has a great sense of humor and it comes through beautifully when reading this book. Not only does the prose make readers smile, but it makes them feel okay about procrastinating (which most of us are good at anyway.

This fun cookbook is full of mouthwatering treats – both sweet and savory, most baked, but also some candy and no-bake treats. A favorite recipe is the French Onion Gougères – little puffs of heaven that go perfectly with soups and salad. Other excellent recipes include Double-Chocolate Mint Cookies, Boston Cream Tart, Salty Sailor Blondies, and Giant Cinnamon Roll Scone. There are literally dozens of great recipes to keep everyone working in the kitchen on excellent treats rather than doing what they should be doing. The queue for new recipes to try is getting longer, since when picking up the book, new recipes jump out and must be prepared.

The only drawback to this cookbook is the lack of photographs. There are so many delectable baked goods and treats included, it is really unfortunate that none are pictured. There are dozens of cute illustrations, but they are no substitute for colored photographs when cooks are trying to decide what to prepare.

For those who love to bake and work in the kitchen, this is an excellent cookbook. Those who insist on cookbooks with photographs will want to skip this one.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
