"Treat Yourself" by Jennifer Steinhauer

I received a copy of this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review.

I love cookbooks!  Seriously.  I'm a cookbook addict!  So I was thrilled to receive this book for review!  And it didn't disappoint!  Great recipes.  Great pictures.  Its the whole package!  

And I love a "uniquely themed" cookbook - which this one definitely is! Not your regular baking cookbook, this book gives you recipes to create some of your favorite store-bought treats right at home!  I love that it contains recipes for some very well-known treats - like oreos and nilla wafers.  But I also love that it has some less-recognizable treats - like TastyCakes (something you probably aren't familiar with if you haven't lived in the NorthEast) and Star Crunch.  That means I can make some of my favorites and also try some totally new treats!  Yippee!!!  

One pet peeve of mine is cookbooks without pictures.  I want to see something before I cook or bake it.  That's usually how I pick new recipes - by seeing a picture that looks delish.  This cookbook is NOT lacking in beautiful, delicious pics of the treats!  Major score!  All-in-all, I'd say this is a fantastic book!  Can't wait to start baking!!!  :)
