I don t do a lot of baking that s why I am such a fan of Tate s. My husband s favorite sweet treat is the Whole Wheat Dark Chocolate cookies. Tate s is great! I m going to try my hand at a couple of these recipes, probably be too embarrassed to take a photo of them. RACHAEL RAY

Kathleen brings simplicity and grace to everything she bakes. The recipes in this book are utterly delicious and easy to make. I know you will return to many of them time and time again just like an old friend. SARABETH LEVINE
