Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito want to make baking a cool venture. Grandma’s cookie recipe is swapped for witty alternatives, like Malt Ball Cake and Chipotle Cheddar Biscuits. Though Lewis and Poliafito are certainly trend-setters, they play loving tribute to classics as well as their new-age confections.

This was one of my first Spotlight Reviews on Amazon, and still my favorite baking book in my collection. With fun, tongue-in-cheek twists on classic comfort bakes, I’ve made at least half the recipes in this book and people always beg for the secret! From the addictive pumpkin chocolate chip bread, lemon lemon loaf, and swoon-worthy Baked brownie to diner-style pies, icebox cakes, ice cream and fudgesicles, cookies and bar cookies, and even boozy milkshakes, these gems are sure to bring a smile to your face. Have plenty of napkins on hand, you’ll need them!
