Since October, 2000, we are a COMPLETE ONLINE step-by-step COOKBOOK with color photos, recipes that work, up-to-date baking tips and techniques for those who bake daily or occasionally. Our goal is to help bakers of all skill levels and ages to "Be a Better Baker".

"I learn something new every time I visit your site and know why my premium membership is so worth it. For pennies a day I get the greatest advice and recipes available."

"I am kind of new to the site, and have found it EXTREMELY helpful. I've tried a bunch of the recipes and they've turned out really well."

"Just want to say that I've tried several recipes from this site and they all have turned out AMAZING!!!"

"...from the very beginning, your immediate and exemplary customer service far surpassed the norm."

"Sarah, I want let you know that your website is great. I am a novice baker who almost gave up on baking because I had met with so many problems with my cakes and I had wasted so much time and money. Thanks to your website (which is so informative)... and your always prompt and wonderful responses."

"Once again I am amazed at the vast (infinite) amount of knowledge available on I could spend every day baking for the rest of my life and never need another book or website. How fortunate I was to have found your site."

"Love love....this website. I wanted to take a baking class at a community college, but I don't have the time because I have a 9 month old daughter and ready for another this year. This website makes me feel like I am in baking school without having to go to school."

I trust Sarah and her adaptations as well as all the recipes on her site and have never had a problem with any of her recipes."
