Cookbook Review 
"Treat Yourself"
Jennifer Steinhauer

 This is a unique cookbook that is full of awesome recipes of classic snacks.  There are 70 different recipes, including, Nutter Butter cookies, Oreos, Twinkies, Tagalongs, those really good Hostess cupcakes and tons more!  

The author spent lots of trial and error trying to recreate this tasty treats.  She tells the story of what gave her the idea to do this and her experience while testing her recipes.  Before each recipe she includes a little summary of why she likes this treat or a memory she has regarding it.

Throughout the cookbook the author gives little tips to make things easier for the one baking.  Also included is a list of supplies you'll need and what they're for.  She also gives a few notes about techniques too.  

This was my first time doing a cookbook review and I wasn't quite sure how to do it.   So I tried one of the recipes.  Only, as usual, I didn't exactly follow it.  Not because I didn't like it, but I didn't want to make all of the things from scratch.  So I improvised.  

My sis and I made the Pizza Pockets.  They were delish!  We didn't make the full amount.  We cut the recipe in half and just used spaghetti sauce from a can, instead of making the sauce because we didn't have the ingredients.

This cookbook is easy to follow and the instructions are very well written and not confusing like some cookbooks can be.  If you love to bake and love the classic sweet treats you need to get this book!
