Review: Milk Bar Life

Of all the cookbooks I have in my collection, it surprises me that I don't own the original Momofuku
cookbook. Who knows how that one has slipped by me... Anyway, I don't think it's necessary to own the original Momofuku cookbook to enjoy this one. 

This cookbook had such a cool vibe to it from the funky photos to the party-ready recipes. Many of the recipes seem simple to prepare and remind me of the comfort and party food that I've enjoyed throughout my life. What would a gathering be without cocktail meatballs? I can't wait to prepare the chicken puffs for my next social event. 

Don't worry, cookie lovers! There are plenty of recipes to satisfy your sweet tooth. In addition to the classics, you'll find unique recipes such as Hijacked Biscoff Cookies, Ritz Cookies, and Salt-and-Pepper Cookies. 

Again, this is a cool cookbook to have if you want to find familiar recipes that have been kicked up a notch with a quirky ingredient here and there. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and can't wait to try out these recipes on my family.
