While I love making desserts, one of my biggest issues is that too often, most of them go to waste in our household. It isn’t that no one likes them; it is that there is only so much two people can (or should) eat. It feels like many times that I make something about quarter to half of what I make goes to waste, leaving me making desserts rarely. Since many of my recipes haven’t converted well to small batches, that leaves me making desserts rarely or only when we have company. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a way for couples to have their favorite desserts without the hassle? Recently, I learned about the perfect cookbook for couples like us – 175 Best Small-Batch Baking Recipes from Jill Snider. When I heard about this cookbook, I knew we had to try it! Luckily, I got a chance to review a complimentary copy of this cookbook, which I couldn’t wait to tell all of you about!
