Segal, Mindy. With Leahy, Kate. Cookie Love: More than 60 Recipes and Techniques for turning the Ordinary into the Extraordinary. USA: Ten Speed Press. 2015.
Switching paths and following her true passion…cookies…Mindy Segal shares her talent, recipes, personal experiences and delicious outcomes in Cookie Love. Owner of an urban bakery in Chicago, Hot Chocolate, this cookie cookbook is full of exquisite pictures, product information, baking skills and followable directions for making absolutely scrumptious cookies. So inspirational, artistic and motivating!
A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
What a beautiful book from an artistic chef who decided to follow her dreams! Though I was a bit intimidated upon first opening this cookbook, I soon applauded Mindy Segal for pursuing her passion of baking to be truly successful and obviously happy. Though not a book for everyone due to the depth of it (some specialized ingredients, piping of cookies, fancier shapes), I found the recipes were easily adaptable to a home-kitchen baker like me. Seriously, there are some great recipes in here…Hot Fudge Thumbprints, Blondie Butterscotch S’Mores, Shortbread…and even Pumpkin cookies for dogs! So glad I did not gloss over this cookbook and dismiss it too quickly, I actually thoroughly appreciated the story behind the book as well as everything contained within this wonderful cookbook.
