Sweet & Savory Baking at 5000 Feet and Above
- Nicole’s recipes help high altitude bakers succeed! At altitudes, preparation of food requires changes in time, temperature or recipe because lower atmospheric pressure due to a thinner blanket of air above decreases pressure. This affects food preparation in two ways: liquids evaporate faster and boil at lower temperatures and leavening expands more quickly.
- Recipes include a wide variety of savory and sweet favorites for breakfast.
- Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming all have cities and towns located above 5000 ft elevation.
- Colorado's population is the second fastest growing state in the nation and newcomers to Colorado are often surprised when favorite recipes fail at higher elevation.

- From the author "The first thing that drew me to writing a book on breakfast is that I just love eating breakfast food! It's always been my favorite meal, and my favorite genre of food. Growing up, weekend breakfasts were a big deal--my parents made big morning meals for us at least once every weekend, and it's really become one of my defining childhood memories of home. I love that there's breakfast options for any style of cooking, and I've been known to eat any and all baked goods as breakfast, so it feels like a natural fit for me. I love the idea of being able to make homemade English muffins, and then turn those into a super yummy breakfast sandwich that is entirely from scratch, and that's the idea behind this book!"
