    The Cookies & Cups Cookbook is a delicious collection of over 125 sweet and savory recipes. This cookbook is divided in two sections – desserts and dinner. As a fan of sweets I loved how the desserts are first in the cookbook. The recipes have a different range of difficulty so readers will find many delicious choices to match their cooking expertise. My family are chocoholics so we selected to try The Fudgiest Brownies recipe. Not only was it because of the chocolate but because our mouth watered from the picture. I confess that I am a lazy cook. I avoid recipes that have too many ingredients or complicated steps. So as soon as I read the recipe I knew I found one that had a good chance for success. And I was right! Each step of the recipe was clear for me to follow; even the amount of time to cook was exact. The recipe and I was a perfect match! And when my family tried the finish product they were speechless. Minutes passed before anyone told me what they thought. They were too preoccupied with eating the brownies. This was so easy to make and tasted so delicious. I will never buy a boxed brownie mix again!
