Format: Hardcover
So far, I have used two recipes out of this book (Pumpkin Pie and Pumpkin & Raisin Muffins) and both needed tweaking. The Pumpkin Pie recipe should have called for evaporated milk instead of regular milk (pie took 1.5 hours to bake instead of the book's recommendation of 45 mins), and I ended up cutting the sugar (Maple Syrup) in half because it was still too much. It's fine to eat "natural" foods, but the sugar content in some of these recipes is still too much for my family. The Pumpkin & Raisin Muffins recipe was alright, but I ended up soaking the raisins in rum for two nights instead of soaking them in boiling water (this is a quick fix). I have yet to try other recipes in this book.

I enjoy having this book as a resource as I adapt various favourite recipes to sugar-free baking. I haven't found that every recipe turns out perfectly, but for the most part these are good recipes and the book helped me to develop a 'feel' for adapting other recipes as well. Several recipes I have tried are excellent and delicious!

HASH(0x9c51e684) out of 5 stars Excellent everyday baking book Jan. 22 2011
By Wendy Hammond - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
When the publisher of Green Market Baking Book: 100 Delicious Recipes for Naturally Sweet & Savory Treats asked if I'd be willing to review their book, I was super excited. I've been on sort of a baking kick lately and was looking for something seasonal, and that used mainly natural sugars. I found it!

Laura Martin has curated over 100 recipes from some of the best chefs and bakers in the slow food movement. Many are gluten or dairy free (or she explains how you can use that option).
The introductory chapters are quite informative and includes
- why eat local, seasonal, organic, and natural
- description and explanation of ingredients
- pantry list
- substitution guidelines for flours and sugars

The recipes themselves are divided into spring, summer, fall, and winter and includes an introduction on choosing produce. Unfortunately, with baking a lot of the recipes don't quite fit into those categories, so I think it could have been organized in a more helpful manner. Especially since at least in Michigan the seasons are so short that fruits (especially berries) are frozen for baking later anyway.

I found myself marking several of the recipes to try, and did make Energy Bars, Blueberry and Corn Skillet Bread, and Honey Wheat Bread. All of them turned out, although somehow the oven temp was omitted in the Honey Wheat Bread recipe. I figured it out by checking other bread recipes to see what temps those were baked at.

Concluding the book are chapters on
- preserving the harvest
- growing your own
- sample menus
- contributor biographies

which were nice but not necessary as the star really is the recipes. Oh, and the index is nice and thorough-something I've come to appreciate as I've added to my cookbook collection.
If you're looking for an everyday sort of baking book, this is one to consider.

HASH(0x9c51e4bc) out of 5 stars Beautiful, inspiring! Jan. 10 2011
By Elizabeth Nix - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I'm very conscious of what and how I eat, but most cookbooks of this type read as boring nutritional primers. Finally a bok about fine cooking and dining that validates my choices. I really love the emphasis on quality ingredients, and appreciate the wealth of knowledge Ms. Martin has brought together. The book itself is a work of art, and makes a wonderful gift (I gave copies to several people this holiday season). Highly recommended for the discriminating and intelligent palate.

HASH(0x9c5173a8) out of 5 stars Delicious & Beautiful. Jan. 21 2011
By Jennifer S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is filled recipes simple to make, yet delectable to the palate. It is a visually beautiful book, with an easy to read format. It encourages and informs the reader to shop locally and seasonally. I appreciate the introduction to alternative flours and sweeteners: truly an excellent guide to start altering other recipes. The Chocolate Coconut Cookies in this book are unbelievably decadent for the quick time it took to make. The Green Market Baking Book is a delightful treat not to be missed by anyone who loves to bake. You will certainly have your eaters ooo-ing, ahh-ing, and yumming for more. Enjoy!

HASH(0x9c55b8e8) out of 5 stars A beautiful book Jan. 10 2011
By Palm Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a well organized, beautifully illustrated cook book. The recipes are segregated by season so that you are able to use only the freshest ingredients. I purchased this book as a gift for my college age son, who is a budding chef. After reading the book, I had to make a few of the recipes before I gave the book away and am very glad that I did. Don't miss the Figgy Pudding.

HASH(0x9c55b90c) out of 5 stars Delicious, easy and the way we should be eating April 1 2011
By Kat Lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
A friend loaned me this book last week and we have already made the Veggie Frittata, Blueberry muffins, and Chocolate Tofu Pudding. Everything is free of processed sugar and I have made all of mine dairy free as well and my 4 year old son gobbled everything up. I love how easy the recipes are, and yet how delicious they are. She makes it very easy to use substitutes if you do not have a particular ingredient on hand. Love it!
