Kathy Morrison of The Sacramento Bee has a nice review of the Cook's Illustrated family baking book, complete with a very yummy-sounding recipe that's low-fat as well, along with these oatmeal fudge bars photographed by The Bee's Anne Chadwick Williams. Find the review here; the recipe for the fudge bars is on the second page of the review.
Elsewhere in the Food & Wine section -- DING-DONG! -- Gina Kim notes several Sacramento restaurants that have adult versions of my favorite Hostess snack. Gina recently started doing food-related video for Sacbee and she's very good on camera as well.
