Having enjoyed Burr's debut, Love, Tanya, the announcement that she would once again be making her foray onto bookshelves everywhere with a cookbook was hugely exciting. If you've seen her videos, you'll know that she loves baking - and she's great at it! I love baking, too, but I never do it because I never know where to go to find new recipes. The Internet is far too big, sometimes. Now, with Tanya Bakes firmly in my possession, I'm hoping to bake a lot more often. This book isn't overwhelming, and it contains recipes for everyone, whether you're a beginner or much more advanced. Plus, each recipe is preceded with a sweet introduction from Tanya, talking about why the recipe was included in the book and what it means to her.
Disappointingly, however, I spotted a ridiculous amount of spelling and grammar mistakes. At points, it didn't even look like it had been edited. I know these errors can be found in every book, and I know there are some in this very post, but I don't expect it (and certainly not so much of it) when a book is by a big name and is receiving way more attention than lots of other books out at the time.
Despite that, I still found the recipes inside to be incredible. I haven't made any yet, but they look amazing, and some of them never would have occurred to me. Like Tanya's salted Nutella cookies, her peanut butter and dark chocolate cookies, and her cookie dough pots. I could go on. (Also, it appears we both have a deep love for cookies.)
Overall, this is a great addition to my kitchen and I'm so excited to get baking. As I said, I don't do it enough, and there are some delicious looking recipes in here. *heart eyes*
