I bought a 6 mo gift subscription for my father, who is 77 and has never really baked, Ever. Well, Sunday pancakes as we were kids, and the annual Boy Scout cake bake-off...but otherwise, nothing. Got him the Chocolate Lovers and he did love it! Directions were easy to follow and he said everything was delicious (he lives on the opposite coast so we got pictures of each creation). Portions were a good size -- enough for him and my mom to indulge and then freeze or even share with neighbors (in a covid-safe way)! Definitely glad we tried it!
This was a gift - I never laid eyes on it but the gift recipient said it was just ok... one book was really not in good shape the and the little "extras" could be kind kitchy... she was not interested in having it renewed after 3 months.
