Most bakers are always searching for mouthwatering dishes that they can make. Unfortunately, many of those dishes are expensive. However, Hormoine Dossou has presented fabulous desserts in her excellent cookbook, The Thrifty Baker: Shop, Bake & Eat on a Budget,for those of us who are budget conscious (and with the economy as bad as it is right now, who isn’t?). In this cookbook Dossou has early chapters with great hints on baking on a budget. After those helpful hints, she presents recipes that are unforgettable. Even though they are lower cost to make, no one will guess, because most bakers will find dozens of recipes that are absolutely appealing. Most of the recipes are for sweet desserts, but there are also a few savory dishes.

The recipes are written in the traditional manner with the ingredients listed first, followed by step-by-step instructions, making it possible for both beginning and advanced bakers to prepare beautiful, picture perfect desserts. Dossou has also added comments at the beginning of each recipe which are helpful and interesting.

One of the best parts of this cookbook is the beautiful, professional photographs that show how fabulous the dessert can actually be. They show how each has been carefully and simply decorated (most home bakers can duplicate it easily).

All told, most bakers will love the ideas in this excellent cookbook. Most of us will want to bake almost everything and it will keep us baking new dishes for months, especially when so many are budget friendly.
