Chris Reynolds is someone who obviously loves his food and that shows in this ebook. I have so many baking books for scones, muffins, breads, cookies and bars which are all going to be redundant since I was given this as a gift, which is a bit gutting. Aswell as hundreds of recipes ther are also so many variations which will please all the members of the family. There are many recipes that do use nuts but I omit the nuts when making a batch for my son. These recipes are "everyday" recipes by which I mean there are no weird ingredients that I know my family will not like or will not eat.

The book is American but most of the items are available in the UK and I have always managed to find substitutions easily and I own a set of US measuring cups and conversions can be done online.

I would like to point out that there are two ways of using the table of contents in this ebook. I am not a techy person so I will explain as best as I can. Firstly when you download this ebook when you tab across to the 4th page it has the contents page you can't select every recipe on this page but you can select the chapters and also sub chapters such as the cookies chapter you can go straight to the Classic shortbread and then tab across all the shortbread cookies, or select the peanut butter cookies and tab through all the various peanut butter cookies and so on.

Or secondly select "go to" and there you will have a full list of the recipes bar the variations which is no big deal. This would have been an excellent cookbook but I am aware that authors can not make any publisher print their books so ebooks are the next best thing in order to get their work out. I think that this ebook is worth every penny and if I had been given this a few weeks back would not have spent money on several baking books.

Some interesting recipes, but it doesn't seem possible to go to the index and select a recipe then go straight to it. Maybe I am missing something, but this is a basic requirement for a recipe book to be of any use. You don't read it like a novel.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too bad it's only kindle 22 Sept. 2012
By Tipper - Published on Amazon.com

Review Update: 2.18.13 HELP!!!
How do I download the new copy that has a TOC?

I discovered this wonderful source a couple of years ago and was eagerly awaiting their release in a print book. I have struggled with high-altitude baking since moving to Boulder, Colorado from the east coast. Every recipe has the high- altitude adjustment and the recipes are actually a higher quality then what I have found with other high-altitude cooking books. The pictures are beautiful and truly show the fine detail you would want in a baking book- for instance, you can tell the crumb of a cake by the picture.

Sadly, no print book yet. I went ahead and bought the Kindle version and downloaded on my iPad. Unfortunately, I cannot give this book 5 stars as it is a nightmare to use. It is a shame that the organization of the book is the detriment because the content is fabulous. But if you are cooking, the function of the material is just as imporatnt as the content.

I am listing the problems here in hopes that the author can read and rectify:

*Please give us a print copy!

*Pages are not indexed according to whether they are cake, cookie, etc. so you have no idea what chapter you are in or how far away you are from another chapter

*No links to a recipe you want

*Difficult to use as you can only see one page at a time so there's no flipping thru fast to find that frosting recipe. This is the worst.

*The picture of the previous recipe shows up on the current page you are cooking. Distracting.

*No way to see all you're the choices you have unless you go all the way back to the cover page which as noted above, has no link

Sign me a fan but this format needs Help!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent - Even for People With Limited Skills (like me) 12 Oct. 2012
By Kevin Waskelis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I wanted to get into baking (since I can't cook - need the precision that baking requires) and a co-worker recommended this book to me. It's excellent. I made my first-ever cake (the fudge bundt cake from the book) and found the directions to be very well written and easy to follow, even for a absolute novice like me - the photos of the finished product helps a lot too.

Also, I live in the mid-Atlantic so it's good for people who don't live in high altitudes as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars High altitude baking and recipes for all 17 Jan. 2013
By A customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Author and trained chef Chris Reynolds has written a beautiful Kindle cookbook filled with numerous color images depicting the various baked goods. He has carefully laid out the cookbook so it is a delight for they eyes to read. I do wish he had put in a complete active table of contents rather than explaining how to search for a recipe in his cookbook. His cookbook is so large it truly would have been better with an active table of contents.

What I do LOVE about this cookbook is how the author has personally tested the recipes at a 5,000 plus elevation. From what I've been told, baking at high altitudes can be a bit tricky. The author does offer general baking tips on how to adapt recipes for high altitude baking while offering a large selection of recipes.

Some of the recipes you will find in his cookbook include:

Maple-Glazed Applesauce Cookies
Peanut Brittle
Spicy-Lowfat Granola
Bacon-Cheddar Dog Bones (a treat for your family dog)
Peanut Butter Bacon Cookies
Rustic Bread
Olive Bread
English Muffin Bread
Cakey Scones
Sunday Morning Pancakes
Summer Fruit Tart
Chocolate Truffle Tart
Pepper Jack Mac and Cheese
"Boulder Blackout" aka Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake with Chocolate or Vanilla Frosting

His cookbook is a good value as there are numerous recipes waiting to be prepared. Four stars given due to the lack of an active table of contents.

Highly recommend with caveats given.

5.0 out of 5 stars a wonderful book 6 Sept. 2012
By jalarson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
high plains sifter is an amazing book for those of us that love delicious, simple, and exciting recipes -- not actually living on the high plains is not a requirement.

the images, the formating for ipad, and the all around attention to detail by the author makes for an enjoyable reading -- as well as working -- use for the book

congrats on a great all around product, the only thing it needs is someone to actually prepare all this for me!

5.0 out of 5 stars These Recipes Work!!! 9 Jan. 2013
By Richard The Buying Hearted - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Unlike 80% of the other high altitude recipes I have tried since moving to Colorado Springs these recipes actually come out the way you want. This book is amazing and I use it every single day. I would highly recommend it to anyone up here in our rarefied air that needs some recipes pre-adjusted to the mile high club. You won't be disappointed.
