Today: Food52 photographer, James Ransom, shares his favorite shots from the Food52 Baking Cookbook (available for pre-order now!).


Chosing my favorite shots from Food52's Baking Cookbook is like deciding between cake and cookies: It's an impossible job, but someone has to do it.

More: Meet the cookbook's brownie cover girl.

The book's sixty, back-pocket recipes mean no occasion's needed for breaking out the butter and sugar. I ate every single one of these recipes and would do so again—any day of the week. This doesn't mean they're not worthy of a celebration, though. Heck, let's do so right now. Here are my 5 favorite photographs:


Olive Oil Ricotta Cake with Plums


Brown Butter Cupcake Brownies 


Blueberry Cream Torte 


Honey Pecan Cake


Six-Ingredient Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies
