Recently I've been baking a treat for the week every Saturday morning (a practice I highly recommend). I'm not a particularly skilled baker, but every cake I've tried from this book has been easy and turned out perfectly, no stand mixer required. Arefi offers flavor variations for every recipe so the options are pretty endless - I can't wait to start baking with farmer's market produce in the spring and summer. Favorites so far are the Black- and Blueberry Ricotta Cake (p 36 - I used frozen berries and added some raspberries as well), and Almond Butter Banana Cake (p 87 - better than the best banana bread you've ever had).

This is the book I turn to when I need cheering up. Set in a crumbling English castle populated by a quirky and delightful cast of characters, the diary entries of the witty, charismatic, and "consciously naive" Cassandra Mortmain make up a coming of age story so utterly charming that I couldn't stop smiling while reading.

Full of very accessible but always interesting and flavorful vegetarian recipes. Lately I've been cooking from this book or the author's blog, Cookie and Kate, multiple times per week. My favorites are the sweet potato black bean enchiladas and chickpea tikka masala, both of which use a lot of pantry staples!
