THE VANILLA BEAN BAKING BOOK BY SARAH KIEFFER IS FULL OF RECIPES THAT CAN SIMPLIFY RECIPES. CONGRATULATIONS ON THE BOOK, YOUR BLOG AND INSTAGRAM, IT’S SUCCESSFUL. I TRY TO FOCUS ON THE BAKED GOODS. MY SHOPS, PHOTOGRAPHS ARE ALL ABOUT THE BAKERY. YOU DO THE PHOTOGRAPHS YOURSELF. SELF-TAUGHT THERE AS WELL? I HAD TWO LITTLE KIDS, SO I STAYED HOME FROM WORK AND GOT BORED, NOT BORED FROM THE KIDS. NO MOTHERS ARE BORED. THAT’S FOR SURE. BUT LOOKING FOR ANOTHER THING. I MISSED BAKING. I BAKED AT A COFFEE SHOP ALL THROUGH COLLEGE. THAT’S WHERE I LEARNED TO BAKE. IF YOU FOLLOW THE RECIPE IT’S FINE BUT IF YOU MIX IT UP A LITTLE BIT IT CAN BE CATASTROPHIC. IF YOU KNOW YOUR BASE RECIPES REALLY WELL, THEN THAT’S WHEN YOU CAN PLAY. BAKING IS FOR — BAKING IS BEST FOR THE SCIENCE INCLINED AND OCD. YOU’LL MAKE GRANOLA FOR US. YES. IN MY BOWL I HAVE FIVE CUPS OF OATS, BROWN SUGAR, SUGAR AND SALT. IT’S VEGETABLE OIL, MAPLE SYRUP AND VANILLA AND YOU COMBINE IT. I NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT MAKING MY OWN GRANOLA LIKE THIS. IT’S NICE TO MAKE ON — TO MAKE AT HOME. MY KIDS LOVE. IT YOU CRAN ADD WHATEVER YOU WANT TO IT. NUTS, DRIED FRUIT. GRANOLA IS EXPENSIVE. YOU HAVE TO STIR IT UNTIL IT’S COMBINED PRESIDENT THEN YOU DIVIDE IT INTO TWO BAKING SHEETS AND SPREAD IT OUT EVENLY. WILL IT BAKE INTO THE BIGGER CLUMPS? YES. I LIKE THIS LOOSE SO I STIR IT THE WHOLE TIME IT’S BAKING BUT IF YOU LIKE THE CLUMPS, STIR IT MAYBE ONCE OR TWICE. AWESOME. TALK US THROUGH SOME OF THIS. LET’S START OVER HERE. IS THIS THE SCONE THAT ALI ATE? RECIPES ARE IN THE BOOK. YES. I LOVE THAT LITTLE BIT OF. YOU PIPE IT ON. CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES. ORANGE CRANBERRY POUND CAKE. OH, MY GOODNESS. MINT CHOCOLATE BARS AND CLASSIC CHOCOLATE CAKE. I SPENT A LOT OF TIME ON THAT. IF YOU COULD BAKE ONLY ONE THING, WHAT WOULD IT BE? I LOVEMAKING SCONES. THOSE ARE TOUGH, TOO. SO VERY GOOD. WELL, CONGRATULATIONS. THE BOOK IS AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE? TOMORROW ELECTION DAY. SO YOU AN EITHER COMFORT BAKE OR — I LOVE. THIS SARAH’S VANILLA BEAN BOOK, VERY EASY TO FOLLOW.
