Book Review: One More Slice


One More Slice is the second book from author Leila Lindholm. Her first book, Piece of Cake, was all about baking. Her new book is concentrated on bread, pancakes, waffles and pizza and pasta from scratch. There are also a few sweets such as brownies, blondies and ice cream.

I enjoyed the rustic feel of this book. It’s printed in matte rather than all shiny and glossy. There are plenty of photos to accompany each dish. The recipes are all clearly laid out and easy to follow. I’ve made three recipes from the book already and I’m definitely feeling brave enough now to try making my own pizza dough or even some bread (which if you know me is my nemesis)!

Blueberry & Blackberry Crumble

I made a Poppy Blueberry Crumble which was fantastic. Summertime is making me crave more fruit and this really hit the spot. I don’t typically like oats in my crumble as it can get quite soggy but the topping on this was lovely and crisp.
Lime & Coconut Blondies

These were supposed to be Lime and Coconut Blondies adapted from Leila’s recipe for Raspberry Blondies. They tasted more like cake than a Blondie but they were still moist and delicious.
In the book there is a recipe for brownies and then there are eight recipes for brownie variations using the first basic recipe. The same format is used for pizzas, ravioli and baguettes. In the case of pizza you can make double the portion of dough and save half for later. This is pretty useful for me since I don’t have a lot of time on weeknights but I still want to cook.
I also made the Sage Sauce with Vanilla with spaghetti for dinner one night which was nice and tasty. I really enjoyed this book and I’ll be using it again for dinner inspiration.
