Just in case you don't want to take the time to search, when the recipe calls for "8 Tbsps (1 stick)" that's equal to 1/2 a cup of butter. When it calls for "1/2 a pound (2 sticks)" that's one cup. etc etc.
Worth every penny.
The book begins with a forward by celebrity chef Paula Deen, who loves the bakery so much that she rented it for her niece's bridal shower, and continues with chapters such as Breakfast, Cupcakes and Cakes, Cookies, Brownies and Bars and Savories. It also contains a useful section aimed at novice bakers covering everything from creaming butter to working with eggs. For visual appeal, the Days include appetite-inducing photos of baked goods on antique china.
Southern staples take centre stage ('Nana Cream Pie, Peach Cobbler Muffins, etc) but unexpected international fare like Guava Sweet-Cheese Turnovers and Bacon-Jam Empanadas broaden the book's repertoire. Most charmingly, the Days have injected the spirit of the bakery right into the cookbook; they interrupt recipes with tales about Savannah and anecdotes describing both the sweetness and the bitterness that accompany following your dreams.
