Short & Sweet | Release Day Review: The New Sugar and Spice by Samantha Seneviratne

Hello friends of the interwebz!
I am back with a Release-Day Review of The New Sugar & Spice by Samantha Seneviratne.

The New Sugar & Spice is a fantastic cookbook blending the flavors of sweet and salty along with - you guessed it - sugar and spice. The chapters are divided by spice so that each chapter is focused on a specific flavor; the first chapter is centered around peppercorns and chiles and the second chapter is centered on cinnamon. This is definitely a sweet/baking and pastry cookbook with just a savory and salty twist. Honestly, I have so many tabs on these pages that I have no idea where to start baking, first. You can definitely expect a recipe adaptation coming up soon on either Maple Sticky Buns, Mango Lime Sorbet, or Pistachio & Chocolate Butter Cake.

I would say that I even recommend this book more for people that are slightly more adventurous in their meals and are looking to explore new flavor combinations. Granted, not everything in this cookbook is crazy adventurous. You will also find classic combinations like a delicious S'mores Pie I will be adding to my Thanksgiving menu this year.

All in all, it is a fantastic addition to my cookbook bookshelf. The pages are full with bright pictures on almost every single recipe which is an automatic win for me. If any of you have glimpsed the pages and/or already tried a recipe, let me know which one and how it turned out; I can't wait to get started.
