Even though I've been baking for a long while, this book has a lot of great recipes and helpful pointers. Little things that I have never thought of like where to place a pan in the oven and what to use to grease a pan. I have changed some bad habits. This book has a great variety of baked goods and am thinking seriously about purchasing this one. Already renewed it 3x!
