  1. Just got this book for my birthday and I can't wait to bake out of it. Today I made carmel for the first time based on a recipe I saw demonstrated on Kelsey's Essentials along with David Lebovitz' guidelines. The other day I tried this same recipe without consulting DL's guidelines and my carmel was blond, grainy, and very thick. Today, based on his tips, I got perfect results. Yeah!!
