Fire up your oven with recipes from what Paula Deen calls one of the "must-eat-at-places" in Savannah

Nationally recognized and locally adored for its decadent homespun desserts and delicious rustic breads, Back in the Day Bakery is a Savannah landmark. As Paula Deen says in her foreword, Cheryl and Griff Day "bake decadent treats, but they also bake wonderful memories that stay with you forever."

To celebrate the bakery's tenth anniversary, this duo has written a book filled with customers' favorite recipes. It's packed with Cheryl and Griff's baking know-how plus recipes for their famous Buttermilk Biscones, Old-Fashioned Cupcakes, Chocolate Bread, Cinnamon Sticky Buns, S'more Pie, Almond Crunchies, Drunk Blondies, Pinkies Chocolate Lunch-Box Treats, Rustic Cheddar Pecan Rounds, and much more. Irresistible full-color photographs of food and behind-the-scenes bakery shots will give readers a glimpse into the sweet daily life at the bakeshop. Celebrating family traditions, scratch baking, and quality ingredients, The Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook is like a down-home bake sale in a book.

About the author (2012)

Cheryl Day and her husband, Griffith, founded Back in the Day Bakery in Savannah, Georgia, in 2002. They're both self-taught bakers; Cheryl honed her skills in her mother's and grandmother's kitchens. Her enthusiasm for enriching lives through the time-honored art of scratch baking is one of her most endearing qualities, along with a few dance moves she picked up in her days as a Soul Train dancer. Together, she and her husband comprise a sweet and savory tour de force!

Griffith Day and his wife, Cheryl, founded Back in the Day Bakery in Savannah, Georgia, in 2002. They're both self-taught bakers; Griff's interest in baking was piqued by the magical sourdough starter that his mother kept in the family kitchen when he was a child. He is the master behind the flavorful breads and the creative savory menu at the bakery, and his pioneering spirit complement's Cheryl's enthusiasm to create Back in the Day's unique atmosphere. Together they comprise a sweet and savory tour de force!
