Popular food writer Lisa Yockelson—whose articles, essays, and recipes have appeared in the Boston Globe, the Washington Post, and Gastronomica—presents what has fascinated her during a lifetime of baking.

In these pages, she explores bars, hand-formed, and drop cookies; casual tarts; yeast-raised breads; puffs, muffins, and scones; waffles and crepes; tea cakes, breakfast slices, and buttery squares; cakes and cupcakes.
