Treat Yourself!

Another awesome free book from Blogging For Books! This one is Treat Yourself: 70 Classic Snacks You Loved as a Kid (and Still Love Today) by Jennifer Steinhauer! Available at Amazon here

This book takes me back to being 5 and begging my grandma for Funny Bones, or the teenage walks to the corner store to pick up Hostess cupcakes. There are tons of awesome throwback "junk food" recipes in this book that I want to try, especially the homemade "Cheez Its"! My husband has already requested a few other recipes. The home made Twix bars and Goo Goo clusters will make awesome Christmas gifts!

The photos (which accompany almost every recipe) are beautiful! Some of them really made my mouth water.

The only downside to this book is some of the recipes are a bit of work for everyday, and would be best as a once in awhile surprise treat. Definitely a great cookbook, and a perfect gift for your favorite junkfood junkie!
