What a sweet, sweet book,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Cookies for Kids' Cancer: Best Bake Sale Cookbook (Hardcover-spiral)
If you just read the intro to the book, you'll want to buy it, if for nothing else than the help the wonderful Cookies for Kids' Cancer organization. But don't let that be the only reason. Sure, you should read the story of how this amazing mom simply would NOT accept the harsh reality that pediatric cancer research gets virtually NO funding. You could get mad, but instead, you should be inspired. Inspired by her example, and the example set by literally thousands of others, to do something about it, and hold a bake sale. And that's where the book really comes in handy. It showcases some of the great bake sales this charity has inspired, both big and small (and no bake sale is small!) and gives invaluable tips and ideas. But the real gems are the recipes, which are foolproof and wonderful. There's something for everyone, from chocoholics to sugar cookie lovers.
Just on a practical level, love the spiral binding so the book stays open while baking.
The book also makes a great gift for the baker in your life. How many books inspire, do good (proceeds to charity) and give you awesome recipes? Not many!
