Oh my...I have all three, and love them all.  Since I haven't made anything yet from the Greenspan book, I would have to put it in third place.  I guess Abigail Dodge's book in second, and Flo Braker's book in first, simply because I have had it the longest and have used it more.  They're all good.

That's like choosing which of your triplets you love the most. :)
You need them all.

I have all three.  I hardly use the Flo Braker one.  I've just recently purchased the Dorie Greenspan, but have to say that I've made more out of it in the past couple of weeks than I have of the Abigail Dodge, which I thought I made a lot out of.  LOL


So, you need the Abigail and the Dorie one, Dorie most of all.

I made Dorie Greenspan's banana cream pie a week ago and her apple pie this past weekend.  They were both TDF.  I love her all purpose pie crust, it's the best I have ever made.  I love that book!!!  I don't have the other two, but that will probably change.  ;o)

I picked up Flo Braker's book on the weekend for $10 CDN at Chapters. Can't go wrong there.

Well thanks to all the enablers I just ordered Tartine, Small Batch Baking and Visions of Chocolate not that I really needed them or needed any prompting to order them!

Picked it up today, $9 with membership discount! Now I have to make a cup of tea and go decide what to make. Son is bringing a friend home for a sleepover, exams are finished today. Never mind that I restarted WW.......

$10??? Was it in the discount area? I'm surprised to see Chapters selling it for that price!

Great deal!
