Here are some of my favourite recipe books.

- anything by Canadian Living (everything comes out perfect)
- The Clueless Baker (easy quick treats when you don't have a lot of time)
- Wanda's Pie in the Sky (when you want 'wow' desserts)
- Treasury of Desserts (various desserts...some completely homemade and some that use packaged foods)

I 've been all the Internet and tried lots of different recipes. AllRecipes is too random - people may rate a recipe high but then make all kinds of substitutions that you really wonder if the original recipe was any good. Also, I'm not a big fan of packaged goods so a lot of their recipes don't appeal to me. Canadian sources for baking are amazing...even Rose Reisman's Divine Indulgences is fantastic and it is all low-fat baking. I don't usually bake low-fat but her recipes are sweet. One book I would like to buy is In the Sweet Kitchen by Regan Daly. I know it is reference book but I could read it like a novel.

In The Sweet Kitchen is indeed a reference but its recipes are incredible. She has a knack for interesting flavour combinations. The ingredient lists may be long for some items, but it's worth it. One of my favourite baking books.
