Baked Occasions: A Review of the ENTIRE Cookbook

Starting in January of 2015, I had the idea to make all of the recipes in the Baked Occasions cookbook.  And to make them all in one year! So here I am sitting on December 31st, 2015 and can say that as of today, I have made all 75 recipes!  That comes out to 1.44 recipes each week.  I can say that my family, friends and co-workers have enjoyed many treats this year.

So, now that I have made all the recipes, I thought an overall post was in order.  I enjoyed the concept of this book.  Having go-to recipes for each holiday is exciting - even the little holidays like World Nutella Day.  One thing I really wished the book had for each recipes is a "Time to Make".  A lot of the recipes would require prep work and would need to set overnight.  I would not realize this until I read through all of the steps. Knowing if each recipe was a quick one or a 2 day one would be helpful.  As for the recipes: some of these were AMAZING...and others were not good... I expected them to all be fantastic, so when some were less than enjoyable, I was a bit saddened.

Now, let's break these recipes down!

All The Recipes:

Color Coding: Green (AWESOME), Yellow (Nothing Special), Red (Never Again), (*** favorite)

Looking for a 2016 challenge?  Pick up the Baked Occasions book today!  :)

Happy New Year!

p.s. my 2016 goal is to give up sugar ;)
