Love brownies? Who doesn’t? The Brownie Diaries: My recipes for happy times, heartbreak and everything in between
is a love story to brownies, and the author, Leah Hyslop shows her love in delightful vignettes and stories about the brownies featured in this fun cookbook. Even though I think of brownies as chocolate (brown), Hyslop has included recipes for dozens of flavors of brownies and blondies. Actually, there isn’t one recipe that doesn’t appeal, and anyone reading this cookbook will immediately get to work preparing at least one type brownie or blondie every day.

The recipes are written in the traditional way so they are easy to follow, and the recipes are mostly quite easy. There is a recipe included for every day to fancy days. Hyslop has also thought of clever names for the myriad of brownies and blondies, and it is an enjoyable read whether you’re planning to bake or not.

The photographs are beautiful, and there is a photograph of every recipe, which is, as far as I’m concerned, absolutely necessary for those of us who choose our recipes based on visibility.

All told, this is not only an excellent cookbook, but it should be on every cookbook shelf. The recipes can be made easily by both beginning and seasoned bakers, and frankly, there is no excuse to skip making brownies for any occasion. Highly recommended.

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