    I received this book as a Goodreads Giveaway, and I am so very happy I did.This is my new favorite cookbook. The recipes are clear with easily available and affordable ingredients. The pictures are beautiful, and unlike many cookbooks, achievable. But that's just the basics that would make a good cookbook.This cookbook is fantastic. The author has wonderful introductions both to the cookbook and to each recipe. The introductions are informative a...

    This was a freebie through Goodreads.I love to cook, eat, collect and read cookbooks, watch cooking shows, all of it. This is my first cookbook from Lei Shishak. It is a lovely book with beautiful color photos of the dishes as well as beach scenes. Beyond baked goods there are some beverages, freezer pops, and ice cream sandwiches included (granted, the sandwiches have you baking the cookie part). In addition to desserts there are some breakfast ...

    I won Beach House Baking: An Endless Summer of Delicious Desserts through goodreads and has happy to find a really good basic dessert recipe book one of the best I have seen in a long time. Lei Shishak has taken a lot of the old time favourite recipes that have been passed down through the generations and combined it into one book. I like that it has lots of recipes that my grandmother and her friends used to make but never gave up there take on ...

    I received this book as part of the First Reads Giveaways.The good:The book is gorgeous - beautifully illustrated, with VERY tempting recipes and clear instructions. I am not a hugely experienced baker, but even I can see myself turning out many of these recipes without too much difficulty. The recipes don't look boring at all - in fact, I like how she takes a pretty standard recipe and adds a twist that makes me think, "wow, I really want to try...

    I love to bake. I fell in love with baking long before I fell in love with cooking, so this book was definitely calling my name!! Now, I love sweets like most people, but I have to admit that I'm definitely more of a savory-type person. I really appreciated the savory side of this book as well as the sweet. The Aged Cheddar, Bacon and Scallion Biscuits were the first to call out my name (Oh, my! You have to try these!), and the blueberry scones a...

    First reads winner.I am SO excited about this book!!! I love baking and I'm weird because I will only cook recipes that have photos. I am happy to say that this book covers BOTH of those! I just got this book and while I haven't made anything yet (but I surely will be starting tomorrow!!), I do not doubt that these recipes are amazing. They LOOK amazing! What I like a lot about this book, which I haven't seen in others, is in the beginning Lei gi...

    Disclaimer: I won a copy of this book as part of goodreads first reads, I was not compensated for my review.This is a beautifully written cookbook - exactly what I like in these with a picture for very recipe, ingredients nicely placed on the edge of the page and concise, easy to follow directions. A fun little bonus is that each recipe starts with a fun little story kind of a "behind the recipe" idea.I haven't had a chance to make any of the rec...

    I have enjoyed this cookbook. I plan to make many of the desserts like the peanut butter cookies, lemon recipes, and many more. The only thing I did not like is that the cupcake pan recipes did not state if we need to use a specific size pan for the recipe. The recipe may say there are 8 servings but not mention if the servings are the small, medium or larger cupcake pans. This was my only dislike. I think it is a great cookbook overall. I will u...

    Just checked this out from the library, read it cover to cover and added it to my amazon list. I loved this book not only for the recipes, but also for the beach information and pairing. I can't wait to try the recipes. The photos and presentation of this book are well done. From the coffee table to the kitchen, this book will be a welcome addition to our house.

    I won this book through goodreads giveaway and I'm glad that I did. It has many scrumptious recipes and I can't wait to try them out this summer. My girls were also looking through it with me and they can't wait to bake (and eat) some cookies, cupcakes and all the many things they saw.Beautil pictures and easy to follow recipes. If you like to bake it would make a nice addition.
