Review: Treat Yourself: You Classic Snacks You Loved as a Kid (And Still Love Today) by Jennifer Steinhauser

This is such a fun book, and a fantastic concept.  Jennifer Steinhauser has created an adorable cookbook full of recipes for all of the junk food you loved as a kid.  To be honest, I'm not sure if I would ever actually make any of these treats, but it's because the recipes are too hard or anything.  I'm not in fact a big baker, but I love reading cookbooks, and this one is great fun.  I could imagine this would work well as a coffee table book...only those with no souls will not be charmed by this one.  I especially like that the author includes savory snacks, as well as the more popular sweet ones.  I also really like that the book uses the actual names of the treats, rather than just descriptive titles.  Steinhauer provides recipes for Fruit Roll-Ups, Twix Bars, Girl Scout cookies, Fritos, Ritz Crackers, Cheetos, and way more.  The book also has lovely photos of many of the snacks, and in general, the book is very nicely designed and attractive.  Check it out over here.

(I received this book from the Blogging for Books program in exchange for this review.)
