Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The Sugar Mommas remind us that what we do in the kitchen has value. Baking cookies for the holidays or making each birthday special with a cake creates memories that will be carried in our children's hearts for years to come. The stories remind us that a recipe is like a family snapshot, capturing memories of a time and place, and the people that made it special.

- Brooke Burke,
Co-Host Dancing with the Stars, Co-CEO ModernMom.com, Author "The Naked Mom"

Kimberly and Jenna are dessert historians. These Sugar Mommas take the stories of our favorite desserts, as well as some hidden gems and reveal a sweeter side of history.

-Rochelle Huppin,

The food turns to you know what in 24 hours but the relationships last a lifetime! It is all 'bout relationships!

With sassy wit and a modern voice, the Sugar Mommas make baking fun! Recipes such as Candy Cane and Princess Cut-out Cookies are simple to make with our children. The quick tips and short cuts mean even the baking challenged can whip up treats the entire family will enjoy. A ModernMom must have!

About the Author

Kimberly "Momma" Reiner and Jenna Sanz-Agero have dubbed themselves the "Sugar Mommas" because of a shared love of all things sweet. Kimberly, the founder of Momma Reiner's Fudge, gained national acclaim when her treats were selected as one of Oprah's Favorite Things for O, the Oprah Magazine and also featured on Rachael Ray. Momma Reiner even appeared on The Martha Stewart Show, making fudge alongside Martha. Kimberly's law school classmate Jenna, who spent her days toiling as a high-powered entertainment attorney and her nights rocking as the lead singer of the band Vixen, now works alongside Kimberly to spread the love of sugar. Together, they are the confectionery queens on ModernMom.com, and they have their own site at sugarsugarrecipes.com. They live near Los Angeles.

I'm buying more to give as gifts, and I NEVER give a cookbook, and tend not to buy them now that so many recipes can be found on-line. This one is different though, the stories behind the recipes make you feel honored to own them and try them out. I've never laughed and cried at a cookbook until this one. Beyond the recipes the authors add tips and their experience modifying the recipe-very insightful, and written in a style that reminds me of my favorite female fiction authors. I want to sit and have a cup of coffee with these ladies, and the cookbook makes you feel as if you are.

I love Sugar Sugar! As an avid reader, it is fun to pick up this book and browse thru the recipes, but even more fun to read the history behind each one. This is like opening a "time capsule" from the past...it is all about the history. I am not a baker nor do I really eat much sugar, but that does not stop me from enjoying this treasure. I have purchased this book for gifts this year....and I am confident they will be well received by my family.

I was always admiring my friends who had baking skills. I would admire from afar. I bought this book...baking has never been easier..I have made the truffles (so easy that my kids helped the second time around)...delicious. The princess sugar cookies made great holiday cookies and the blueberry pie..delicious. I will never have to buy the pillsbury premade crust dough again. I am ordering more for gifts. I ran out of the first 5 I purchased!

Yes, I have had the good fortune to enjoy almost every recipe in this book prepared by my lovely wife and one of her very best friends. Although I found them all to be DELICIOUS, my favorite is the Cape Cod Blueberry Pie recipe on page 93 and it has left me asking, 'May I have another please!' :)

The recipes in this book will help make sure you always have something delicious to serve whether for dinner at home or your next bake sale. We love the apple crisp recipe and all the bar cookies have been super delicious and easy to make.

Format: Hardcover
We've often heard the expression, "Sweets to the sweet." Well, in this originally conceived book there's are more than enough sweets not just for the sweet but for everyone. Further, remember how good grandma's fudge was? Just the best you've ever tasted, but you don't have the time in the kitchen that grandma had - not to worry the authors provide tips for modern variations of time tested and family loved sweets.

Plus, these sugar aficionados firmly believe that every recipe has a story - indeed, they do and they come from all across our land. For instance there's Aunt Bunny in Sweetwater Texas who not only sends her recipe for Scrumdilliumptious White Chocolate Cake but a story about her twin brothers and the surprise that occurred in the middle of the night. Sweets and stories cannot be beat.

After tasting the recipes and reading their stories readers will feel they've made a host of new friends. Gorgeous full color photos are found throughout as are places for notes and an invitation to share a recipe and share your story with the Sugar Mommas.

Enjoy - we know you will!

- Gail Cooke
