Everything is so beautifully put together in appearance as well as flavors and textures. Her second cookbook, Sea Salt Sweet excited me because of my obsession with sweet and salty desserts. I’ve bookmarked several items to make in the near future!

Quick-Shop-&-Prep 5 Ingredient Baking: Cookies, Cakes, Bars & More that are Easier than Ever to Make by Jennifer McHenry

Jennifer’s cookbook is a great creative use of pantry ingredients. There are so many dessert variations she has for you with a basic few and then even more when you add one, two, three, four or five more ingredients to that list. I still think about the peanut butter snack cake I made a couple of months ago.
