The Treats Truck Baking Book By Kim Ima Review and Giveaway Holiday Gift Guide

I am so jealous of the lucky New Yorkers that get to eat all the treats that are offered daily from Kim Ima's treats truck. Kim and her retro-chic bakery truck named Sugar, make their way through Manhattan and Brooklyn neighborhoods offering cookies, cakes, brownies, pies and more. Since we all don't live in New York City, the next best thing is Kims' new book, The Treats Truck Baking Book. This book is just adorable, the recipes are easy to follow, and would make a lovely gift for the baker on your Christmas list. But you just might end up keeping it for yourself. Unlike a lot of baking books, most of the recipes here can be made by inexperienced cooks, and still come out tasting yummy. All directions are easy to follow and most recipes don't have a long ingredients list. From Chocolate Pie to Oatmeal Jammys, there is something for everyone to bake and enjoy. I really liked the chapter on easy frostings and glazes for cakes and cupcakes.

I made the Coconut Macaroons with chocolate chips and they were so delicious. They looked like I put a lot more effort into them than I actually did, but they were so easy. I also made the Lemon Cake with Lemon Glaze, and that was a big hit with my family. Again, the recipe was not at all difficult to follow. I look forward to making more treats from The Treats Truck Baking Book in the next couple of weeks for the holidays. I would recommend this charming little book for any cook to use and enjoy.

You can purchase The Treats Truck Baking Book online at Barnes and Noble and Books A Million.
