Just look at the illustration below. I look at it again and again and it always makes me smile. It is from Yvette van Boven, baker, cooker and illustrator extraordinaire. Her book, Home Baked, reminds me of a Molly Katzen book, with her whimsical hand-drawn images and relaxed cooking approach. Check out her Whole-Wheat Oatmeal & Honey Cakes as well. The book is huge – tons to look at and recipes to inspire with over 250 images – and will make a great present this year for your baker friends.
