Sugar, Sugar

Every Recipe Has a Story

I am so happy to get the chance to review this cookbook because I just love the variety of recipes for the cakes, pies, cookies, candies and other treats these two ladies offer their readers. There were so many recipes I wanted to try before I wrote this review, but I just didn't have the time to try the very long list of ones that I had picked out. So, I picked a few instead and had wonderful results with them. This book will make a great gift for any baker in your life no matter what time of the year it is. I'm definitely adding this to my cookbook library and will be trying out some more recipes as the holiday parties come closer. Don't pass this book up!


Book Blurb for Sugar, Sugar

Sugar, Sugar offers 100 of the best cake, pie, cookie, bar, and candy recipes from two sassy Sugar Mommas, Kimberly Reiner and Jenna Sanz-Agero, who are on a mission to preserve America's best sweet treat recipes and the even sweeter stories behind them. As the Sugar Mommas explain, "We drove down memory lane to discover our sugar inheritance, and then dug into everyone else's past to find their dusty, torn, and butter-crusted index cards."

What the Sugar Mommas found was that every recipe has a story. From desserts that accompanied families through good and bad times, to treats perfected by domestic help, to never-before-transcribed sugar concoctions developed from wild imaginations, each recipe conveys the unique personality of the friend or family member who created it.

With plenty of pies worth the lie, cakes to diet for, and better-than-nooky cookies, as well as an assortment of cobblers, crisps, bars, and other decadent confections, Sugar, Sugar is sure to satisfy any sweet tooth.
