Premise: "Do you love the taste of from-scratch treats, but lack the time to slave over dozens of ingredients? Popular food blogger Lizzy Early has the sure fire solution, as she demonstrates that even the most elaborate desserts can be created from a simple cake mix. With dozens of recipes that ensure all of the flavor and none of the fuss, the bestselling author of Your Cup of Cake proves that you don't have to be a professional chef to create bakery-worthy sweets in your own kitchen. From luscious lemon cookies to rich red velvet doughnuts, family and friends will never believe that these gourmet goodies came from a box!" (
Opinions: OH MY HEAVEN!!!!  I loved Lizzy Early's first book, Your Cup of Cake, which I got for Mother's Day a few years back and have received rave reviews from many people when I make them any of those recipes.  Then, last week while volunteering at my local library, I saw that she had a new book out. Flipping through the glorious images of her creations my mouth started to drool.  Not only does she provide new cupcakes like S'Mores Cupcakes and Strawberry Red Velvet Cupcakes, but she has expanded her creations. Make It With A Cake Mix also includes such delectable recipes for Red Velvet S'Mores Bars, Chocolate Waffles, Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Whoopie Pies, Carrot Cake Whoopies Pies, Ultimate Grasshopper Cookies, and Rocky Road Cake. And that's just that start. Everything sounds so amazing and looks completely incredible that I've already put it on my wish list for this Mother's Day.  So if you like to try new things and want to expand your baking options, then you must try out this cookbook.
