A REALLY exciting new cookbook

I can see some of you rolling your eyes at the title of this post. . . "Sure, Sherry, you think every cookbook is exciting". . . witness my collection that numbers well into the three figures.

But this one is special.  It is American Cake by Anne Byrn.  It is divided into periods of our country's history beginning in colonial times, showcasing cakes from each period.  Some you have heard of - Boston Cream Pie, for example.  Others were new to me, at least.  I chose to make the Hummingbird Cake first and OH, is it out of this world delicious!

With over 125 recipes, this one will keep me occupied for awhile!

Seriously, there are certain things I do when the pressures of life seem overwhelming.  One of those stress busters is baking.  It is a creative outlet for me and over the years, I've become quite good at it.

If you are a serious baker, check out this one.  You won't be disappointed!
