Welcome to A Librarian Bakes! This blog series will celebrate all of the many cookbooks the library has to offer on our shelves. We will feature a monthly post on a recipe within the library collection, which is then baked and reviewed by the staff at Georgetown. We will focus specifically on baking since, lets be honest, many of us at Georgetown enjoy our dessert! The recipes will be brought in to share at our branch where we’ve got a variety of hungry taste testers! This month we went vegan with a new acquisition on the library shelves Isa Does It!
