The baking binder is done. And in all honesty after this post going to be split in two, it’s way too heavy. After spending the better part of two days weeding through recipes and lovingly giving them this home, you better believe I”m trying one of these babies tonight. This afternoon my Mom, sister and I are FINALLY going to go see Julie & Julia. So in the spirit of all things cooking and baking here is a little contest to have some fun with.
Here’s what you have to do: Guess how many pages are in my completed baking binder, shown above.
And to clarify one page= one sheet protector.
Leave a comment with your guess and next Sunday I will pick the winner, the one who guesses closest without going over wins! Want to know what you are playing for?

This book changed my mind about pie. I have been a pie hater in the past.. Every book or article you read starts out scaring you to death on how difficult it is to make a good pie and I’m a pretty dang good baker if you ask me. So this little cookbook was a library find, then I sucked it up and bought a used library copy from Alibris. Just a note that I do purchase used books as a principle so your copy will be a used copy in very good condition.
Here is the Amazon.com review:
“The simple directions and soothing reassurance in Pie Every Day may single-handedly raise a pie revival. Pat Willard presents easy, convenient techniques. She praises the food processor as an aid to turning out piecrusts with ease. Clear instructions for everything, from the kind of flour to use, to easing the crust into the pan, make this seem truly possible. When time for baking is out of the question, Willard’s stories about her life and pie baking are amusing, calming, and uplifting. Reading this book can be as satisfying as sitting down with a slab of homemade pie and a good cup of coffee”.
