It’s the definitive book on cookies—and so much fun to use!Crazy for Cookies, Brownies, and Bars
This one surprised me with all the colors and the pictures it was so fun to actually navigate through all the instructions when you can see the results.
One thing that could maybe make me sad was the amount of chocolate in this because sadly i’m allergic to it, but I do think that I could easily replace chocolate for maybe other things maybe coconut or vanilla or fruits so not so downer.
Loved that this even has recipes for your dog I mean it was so awesome, you will have a lot of fun with this book if you like to cook and ty new things and dessert it’s always a good stop.
