From the foreword by James A. Nassikas, former president of Deer Valley Resort

 [Y]ou will find truly American recipes here that cut away from the time-honored traditions of home baking, yet fit comfortably with the skill and available equipment of the home baker. Home bakers will benefit from the author’s clarity of instructions and descriptions. Added bonuses in this book are twofold: the technical directions given for the unpredictable aspects of high-altitude baking and the inclusion of timely recipes that are fat-free alternatives. As a good cookbook should, this one motivates and conveys trust. The author instills confidence as she guides you every step of the way, often with numerous pointers and trade secrets she includes as sidebars to a range of selected recipes.
