About the Author

Griffith Day and his wife, Cheryl, founded Back in the Day Bakery in Savannah, Georgia, in 2002. They're both self-taught bakers; Griff's interest in baking was piqued by the magical sourdough starter that his mother kept in the family kitchen when he was a child. He is the master behind the flavorful breads and the creative savory menu at the bakery, and his pioneering spirit complement's Cheryl's enthusiasm to create Back in the Day's unique atmosphere. Together they comprise a sweet and savory tour de force!

Cheryl’s enthusiasm for enriching lives through the time-honored art of scratch baking is one of her most endearing qualities, along with a few dance moves she picked up in her days as a Soul Train dancer. Griff adds his pioneering spirit to the mix and is the master behind their flavorful breads and creative savory menu. Together they comprise a sweet and savory tour de force!

Cheryl and Griffith Day are the authors of the New York Times bestselling Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook and Back in the Day Bakery Made with Love.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have Dec 17 2012
I've completed so many recipes from this book and they're all fantastic. The Mexican Hot Chocolate Shortbread cookies are perfect with just the right amount of kick. The Cinnamon-Sugar Donut Muffins are to die for! My whole family loved the Chicken Pot Pie Cobbler - my 9 year old son had two helpings which never happens. Oh, how could I foget the Bourbon Peacon Pie!!! My husband says it's the best peacn pie he has ever had. It's my new "go-to" book.

The strawberry cupcakes and the banana chocolate chip cupcakes are FANTASTIC! I first bought this for my Kindle, but after I realized I was smearing the Kindle with flour and butter, I bought the hardcover copy. It is so beautiful! I own a lot of cookbooks but this is one I pull from my shelf all the time. Absolutely love it and highly recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars Baking as it was meant to be! Oct. 31 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I stumbled on this book as I was looking for something else on Amazon and sort I impulsively bought it! I'm really glad I did because its a lovely book filled with good old fashioned baking recipes. The peach muffins were particularly delicious. I will say that for most of the recipes I tried, they tend to go just a bit heavy on the sugar, so I just reduce it a bit. Overall, a lovely book written in a lighthearted style.

I have had this book for about 6 months and have made many of the recipes in it. Every recipe I've tried has been delicious and easy to make. The directions are straight forward, the ingredients are listed in the order they are used and there are lots of photos to entice you try something. It's also nice that the ingredients are easy to find and are probably already in your cupboard/fridge. If you're looking for really tasty food, that people will devour and rave about, this is the book to get. This isn't the book to buy if you're looking for low fat, low calorie, dairy free, and/or health conscience recipes that will help you lose weight.

By Kathy A
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book and found many recipes I can't wait to try. I love the design and flair to the gives you a real cozy down-home feeling. I would like to see some lighter versions of recipes though, but I guess when it comes to comfort food, light isn't really a consideration. I'm sure you'll enjoy this's a keeper!!
