Sadly, my beloved Borders is one of the locations on the chopping block.  So Stella and I stocked up on books during their closing sale today.  A lot of books had already sold out, especially cookbooks.  Luckily, I spotted one book that was on my list and snapped it up quickly.  Baked Explorations is the second installment from the Brooklyn bakery, Baked.  I find a lot of cookbooks that focus on baking to be very intimidating, however, these guys make it seem so easy.  And it helps that the photography is so beautiful, too. 
I plan on making these whoopie pies first:
Make sure to watch their demonstration video on Amazon, too.

Whoopie Pies are so fantastic. I get them around here at a Mennonite store.

I love Whoopie Pies! I made them once for the teachers at the preschool and they were ridiculously good. I love cookbooks too. LOVE them. I might have to check this one out! So sorry your beloved store is closing. Do you have a Barnes and Noble in the area?
