Baking became a form of therapy for Julie Jones when her mother, who taught her to bake, was diagnosed with dementia. They began baking together again, and Julie started her Instagram account as a way to document this precious time and now her delicious recipes are available for the first time as a sumptuous cookbook that would make an inspired addition to any kitchen bookshelf!
Learn to cook crafted, beautifully styled pies, tarts, cakes and bakes, but be sure to cook with Julie’s secret ingredient – love.

This is the ideal Christmas present for the baker in your life – regardless of their skill level they will find something in this recipe book that they can conquer and share with those they love, because isn’t that what baking is, sharing food made with love, for those you love? That’s how it works for me anyway. 🙂
And this book is gorgeous! I love the images (even if you don’t bake you can sit and ohh and ahh at the wonderful creations within this book), and creations/work of arts they are! Buy this for yourself or for someone you love and get baking today 🙂
**I look forward to sharing a few of the recipes and the glorious art that is the finished product, with you soon.
Oh, that sounds great, Carol! Of course, a book like that would probably add w-a-y too many kilos to my frame… 😉
