My Rating: 4 stars

My Review: When the publisher sent me a copy of this cookbook to review I'll admit that I hadn't heard of Tanya Burr. Apparently, I live under a rock ... or maybe it's because I'm not well-versed on YouTube stars. Be that as it may, I now know that Tanya Burr has a popular YouTube channel where she showcases her inner fashionista as well as her talent in the kitchen.

This book is a stunner. The cover art is eye-catching, and the photography highlights the beautiful and diverse recipes that will entice readers. Little blurbs are added throughout which give the book a personal feel as Burr chats about her inspirations in the kitchen which help readers get to know a bit about the author herself. 

Burr has included a variety of options for different tastes and skill levels. Readers will be enticed with delicious dishes like Salted Caramel Cheesecake, Bailey's Tiramisu (I'm in love!), Lemon Drizzle Loaf (my fav!) and unique and tempting Earl Grey Tea Loaf!

My only issue is that for North American audiences, who aren't as well versed in the metric system (yes, I'm Canadian but still bake with imperial measurements), figuring out the measurements may be a little time consuming until you get the hang of it.

Overall, this is an impressive and beautiful cookbook that has a down-to-earth feel to it as Burr shares her love of food, cooking and sharing well-loved recipes
