” Sugar, Sugar offers 100 of the best cake, pie, cookie, bar, and candy recipes from two sassy Sugar Mommas, Kimberly Reiner and Jenna Sanz-Agero, who are on a mission to preserve America’s best sweet treat recipes and the even sweeter stories behind them. As the Sugar Mommas explain, “We drove down memory lane to discover our sugar inheritance, and then dug into everyone else’s past to find their dusty, torn, and butter-crusted index cards.” What the Sugar Mommas found was that every recipe has a story. From desserts that accompanied families through good and bad times, to treats perfected by domestic help, to never-before-transcribed sugar concoctions developed from wild imaginations, each recipe conveys the unique personality of the friend or family member who created it. With plenty of pies worth the lie, cakes to diet for, and better-than-nooky cookies, as well as an assortment of cobblers, crisps, bars, and other decadent confections, Sugar, Sugar is sure to satisfy any sweet tooth.” ––Cooks & Books & Recipes http://bit.ly/JnuaRX
“Fear not sugar lovers! The “Sugar Mommas” are on a mission to make sure sugar recipes stay available to everyone, all the time, in their new cookbook, Sugar, Sugar: Every Recipe Has a Story. Kimberly Reiner and Jenna Sanz-Agero (the Sugar Mommas) have added an interesting twist to their cookbook which makes it unique. As the title mentions, every recipe has a story and these stories breathe life into each instruction. Many stories tell of past generations making the same sugary creations that cooks make today. The Sugar Mommas have captured the magic behind the recipes included in the cookbook.” ––Portland Book Review http://bit.ly/AzE7DL
“The mission of the ‘Sugar Mommas’…is to bring readers vintage treats and the stories behind them. The result is a book filled with tempting cakes, pies, cookies, and candies. These ladies don’t always follow the rules, and it’s refreshing to see that their approach to baking comes with a sense of humor.” –The Philadelphia Inquirer
“We all have stories about food and family. Cookbook authors Kimberly “Momma” Reiner and Jenna Sanz-Agero understand that. They understand that while a good story won’t turn a bad recipe into a good one, it will make a good recipe live on. They also understand that food connects us because of the stories connected to it. What is tradition but a story handed down – like a recipe – from one generation to another? Reiner and Sanz-Agero have collected a pile of sweet recipes – and even sweeter stories – in their new cookbook, “Sugar, Sugar: Every Recipe Has a Story” ” ––The Rocky Mountain Telegram http://bit.ly/nkCZs2
