My thoughts: I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book because of the picture on the bottom right of the cover, Chocolate Raspberry Eclair Cake! I have not tried it yet because I am afraid of what will happen if I do. It looks amazing and the recipe looks easy to follow.

My attempt at the Vanilla Sugar
Cookies.  Not as pretty, but tasty.
I have made the Nutella Brownies, Vanilla Sugar Cookies, and Mint Oreo Brownies. All three were easy to make and tasty. I couldn't get my topping to look as fluffy on the Mint Oreo Brownies as it looks in the picture, but it was delicious.

I work as a lunch lady and so I had a couple of my co-workers try out a recipe or two. One made the Rocky Road Popcorn and brought it in to share. It was addicting. I am not a big fan of marshmallows, but I really liked the whole package together. Another made the Brown Sugar Bars. She said that it was an easy recipe to do, but it was a little too sweet for her taste. Her son loved it though.

The pictures in the book are beautiful. The recipes are easy to follow and for the times when my sweet tooth needs a little attention, this is a great recipe book to go to.
