Growing up as the sensitive, slightly awkward child of three in a race-conscious space, she decided early on that she'd rather spend her time eating cookies and honey buns than taking on the weight of worldly issues. It helped her see that good food is the most powerful way to connect, understand and heal. Inspired by this realization, each one of her recipes tells a story. Orange Peel Pound Cake brings back memories of summer days eating Florida oranges at Big Ma's house, Rosketti cookies reimagine the treats her mother ate growing up in Guam, and Plaited Dukkah Bread parallels the braids worked into her hair as a child. Jerrelle leads you on a sensual baking journey using the five senses, retelling and reinventing food memories while using ingredients that make her feel more in control and more connected to the world and the person she has become. Whole flours, less refined sugar and vegan alternatives make it easier to celebrate those sweet moments that made her who she is today. Escape everyday life and get lost in the aromas, sounds, sights, textures and tastes of Black Girl Baking.About the AuthorJerrelle Guy, founder of the popular food blog Chocolate for Basil, is a foodscholar, award-winning food photographer, recipe contributor and Tastemade Tastemaker.

With Cheryl as your guide, it's like having generations of Southern bakers standing over your shoulder, showing you just how to cream butter and sugar, fold whipped egg whites into batter, adjust for the temperature and humidity in your kitchen, and master those glorious piecrusts by overcoming the thing that experienced bakers know--a pie dough can sense fear!

Homemade Refrigerator Biscuit Mix Makes 10 cups If making several batches of biscuits a month, or one biscuit at a time, make a flour-and-fat base mixture to add the milk to at a later time. It will keep several months in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator. Combine one part milk or buttermilk with two parts mix for any quantity of biscuits from 4 to 40 Once again, more salt and baking powder are added. This dough can also be used in making coffee cakes, pancakes, waffles, and the like. Ingredients: 10 cups self-rising flour 3 teaspoons salt 5 teaspoons cream of tartar 4 teaspoons baking powder 2 cups chilled shortening, lard, or butter, roughly cut into 1/2-inch pieces Directions: Fork-sift or whisk the flour, salt, cream of tartar, and baking powder in a very large bowl. Scatter the shortening over the flour and work in by rubbing fingers with the shortening and flour as if snapping thumb and fingers together (or use two forks or knives, or a pastry cutter) until the mixture looks like well-crumbled feta cheese, with no piece larger than a pea. Shake the bowl occasionally to allow the larger pieces of fat to bounce to the top of the flour, revealing the largest lumps that still need rubbing. Store the mix in the refrigerator in an airtight container until ready to use.Award: Pat Conroy Southern Book Prize - FinalistAbout the AuthorDupree, Nathalie: - Nathalie Dupree has written or coauthored many cookbooks, including the James Beard award winner Nathalie Dupree's Southern Memories and Shrimp and Grits.Graubart, Cynthia Stevens: - Cynthia Stevens Graubart is an author and former television producer who began her culinary television production career with New Southern Cooking with Nathalie Dupree in 1985.

Marketplace Books See You on Sunday: A Cookbook for Family and Friends
Author: Sam SiftonNEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - From the New York Times food editor and former restaurant critic comes a cookbook to help us rediscover the art of Sunday supper and the joy of gathering with friends and family "A book to make home cooks, and those they feed, very happy indeed."--Nigella LawsonNAMED ONE OF THE BEST COOKBOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR - Town & Country - Garden & Gun "People are lonely," Sam Sifton writes. "They want to be part of something, even when they can't identify that longing as a need. They show up. Feed them. It isn't much more complicated than that." Regular dinners with family and friends, he argues, are a metaphor for connection, a space where memories can be shared as easily as salt or hot sauce, where deliciousness reigns. The point of Sunday supper is to gather around a table with good company and eat. From years spent talking to restaurant chefs, cookbook authors, and home cooks in connection with his daily work at The New York Times, Sam Sifton's See You on Sunday is a book to make those dinners possible. It is a guide to preparing meals for groups larger than the average American family (though everything here can be scaled down, or up). The 200 recipes are mostly simple and inexpensive ("You are not a feudal landowner entertaining the serfs"), and they derive from decades spent cooking for family and groups ranging from six to sixty. From big meats to big pots, with a few words on salad, and a diatribe on the needless complexity of desserts, See You on Sunday is an indispensable addition to any home cook's library. From how to shuck an oyster to the perfection of Mallomars with flutes of milk, from the joys of grilled eggplant to those of gumbo and bog, this book is devoted to the preparation of delicious proteins and grains, vegetables and desserts, taco nights and pizza parties.About the AuthorSam Sifton is the food editor of The New York Times, a columnist for The New York Times Magazine, and the founding editor of the Times's Cooking section, an award-winning digital cookbook and cooking school. Formerly the newspaper's national news editor, chief restaurant critic, and culture editor, he is also the author of Thanksgiving: How to Cook It Well. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife and two children.
