Life Is What You Bake It

Life is What You Bake It: Recipes, Stories, and Inspiration to Bake Your Way to the Top (Clarkson Potter, 2021) by Vallery Lomas was destined to be one of the best cookbooks of 2021, even before it was released. After winning The Great American Baking Show but never seeing it aired, this 100-recipe collection became her well-deserved trophy. Finding inspiration from her family recipes back in Louisiana, her travels to Paris and her new adopted hometown of New York City, there are flavorful options for any taste. Chocolate mint moon pies, clafoutis, one-bowl blueberry buckle, banoffee pie — every recipe is a page turner and sure to be enjoyed for years to come.
