From Publishers Weekly

Yockelson's ( Country Pies ) idea of heaven seems to be a homemade cake in summer, haunted by "frosty goblets of tea." "The smooth, almost rhythmic mixing of a cake batter is one cooking process that never fails to comfort me," she gushes. "Sensual and forthright," "meltingly tender," "easy to devour" and magically "effortless" to bake, her "picture-perfect" specimens are made of equal parts egg yolks and euphoria, whether topped with "billowy white" frosting or "a hazy wash of chopped walnuts, sugar, cinnamon, and butter." The author's hens range free; her back porch beckons to friends and strangers alike; and many of Yockelson's nominees for gustatory rapture--peach upside-down cake, chocolate pound cake, blueberry-walnut-brown sugar buckle--are persuasive. But her organization of recipe ingredients into split columns on double-page spreads may cause eyestrain among mere mortals. Illustrations not seen by PW.
