“Complete Cake Mix Magic” by Jill Snider (  is our cookbook pick of the week. Simpled inspired ways (300 of them) to transform a box of simple packaged cake mix into a show-stopping dessert or bakery item your family and friends can ooh and aah over.

No meal is complete without a sweet treat at the end, even breakfast, but those bills for fancy bakery-bought items can sure add up fast. Spend a weekend morning in the kitchen trying out Snider’s creative recipes for such goodies as Chocolate Raspberry Almond Oat Bars, Queen Elizabeth Cake and Pina Colada Torte and you’ll have an assortment of great-tasting and tempting bakery offerings to last you through the week! This book is also a great resource for parents who are fundraising for their children’s schools and need good ideas for bakery items that will just fly off the shelf at bake sales.
