As a former resident of NYC, and a former weekly visitor to Sugar (a.k.a. the Treats Truck) I've been waiting impatiently for this book to come out. While baking Kim's treats myself will never be as fun as compulsively checking her location on Twitter and bouncing up to the truck's counter, it's the next best thing.

First and foremost, the recipes are spot-on. I'm not an accomplished baker, so I appreciate the tips sprinkled throughout the book. She clearly states which ingredients she uses, like unsalted butter, dark brown sugar, whole milk and large eggs. This is helpful as I don't know, for example, the difference between light brown sugar and dark brown sugar, and I find these distinctions are not always specified in other cookbooks. To date, I've made my three favorite treats: oatmeal jammies (with apricot jam), coconut macaroons, and cran-almond crispies. Prep was quick and uncomplicated, the recipe lists straightforward, and most importantly, all three turned out perfectly. I like the approach to baking as something that should be fun, simple and delicious. I also see a lot of mix-and-match options riffing off the basic recipes, which I think gives a lot of bang for your buck.

Second, the design is just terrific. Echoing a previous reviewer, props to Harper Collins for publishing a cookbook that clearly breaks through a sea of sameness in an over-saturated cookbook market. It is Kim's and the Treats Truck's philosophy to the core; anything less colorful, less quirky or less fun would have been an injustice to the Treats Truck brand. It's well laid out and the print is easy-to-read and follow. The illustrations are particularly charming; clearly the designer put a lot of love into this book and it shows.

I had a lot of expectations for this cookbook and they've all been surpassed. I plan to give out copies of this book, accompanied by a batch of oatmeal jammies, as holiday hostess gifts.

With bright colors, cute illustrations and charming names, this is a fun book to peruse.

As you can see in the list of recipes below, the book features classic desserts such as chocolate chip cookies, devil's food cake and apple pie. As the author did not add new or inventive updates or tweaks to these classics, the cookbook is probably best for people who don't already have many other baking cookbooks.

There are fewer recipes than it appears at first glance since there are base recipes that are combined with mix-ins and/or frostings and given a new name. For example, the second chapter had only one recipe; the rest were cookies from the first chapter with frosting from the fourth chapter.

While there are whimsical graphics throughout the book, there are photos of only a few of the finished treats.

The first chapter, Cookies, includes recipes for:
* Chocolate Chippers
* Peanut Butter Cookies
* Sugar Dot Sugar Cookies
* Lemony Lemon Dot Cookies
* Oatmeal Cookies: Old Fashioned, Plain Jane, and Oatmeal Chocolate Chippers
* Oatmeal Jammys
* Chocolate Cookies and Chocolate Chocolate Chippers
* Coconut Macaroons
* Cinnamon Cookies
* Pumpkin Swirl Cookies
* Gingersnaps
* Gingerbread Cookies
The author encourages readers to mix and match frostings with the cookies and offers tips about frosting and decorating.

The next chapter, Sandwich Cookies, really only includes one recipe (Caramel Crème Sanwich Cookies). The rest refer to cookies from the first chapter and frosting from the fourth chapter.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I love recipe books as it is a great opportunity for my fiance and I to spend some quality time in the kitchen cooking together. It's a great bonding experience and nothing makes it better than a good recipe and The Treats Truck, in all it's cute little glory, certainly provides that part.

The first thing I noticed when I got the book was how the book bore a striking resemblance to The Hungry Caterpillar and I thought, "this is cute." I quickly began flipping through the book and the first thing I had to try was the "desert nachos" on page 136. Sure it was as fat free as the $1 menu at McDonald's but darn it tasted good and my guests asked for seconds, thirds, and so forth. I've tried other recipes that I tried and loves, but nothing beats the desert nachos with cookie chips as the chips. :)

I haven't tried any of the baking yet, but with Thanksgiving only a few days away I cannot wait to try the banana cake with my fiance's grandparents (wish me luck, haven't met them yet!).

I gotta admit, I had my reservations about this one because of the kiddie-like style but the recipes are genuine and the layout is comprehensive. My only complaint is that the sub-table of contents is placed in their respective chapters rather than the front of the book. This makes finding recipes a little more difficult, but it's only a 150 page book with an index so it's not that bad. No star dock here.

All in all, this recipe book is a good one. I recommend it to anyone wanting fun little treats to make whether you're a parent or, like me, you just like to cook for others.
