Food trucks are all the rage these days and author/food truck owner Kim Ima, reinforces the belief that if you are passionate about something and can visualize it, you can make it happen and be successful.
“I want to make it real,” I told my friend. It was love. And when it’s love, what else can you do? Find a truck, learn how to drive in the city, learn how to make your favorite brownie recipe, times ten, and open for business.” ~ Kim Ima, The Treats Truck Baking Book
This is a great little book, especially for beginner bakers. I really like the Tips, Tools & Measurements page. It gives a quick outline of the basic essentials you should have in your kitchen, of course some baking tips and the most useful, at least for me, are the measurement conversions that she provides at a glance. Some recipes suggest “variations”, like adding chocolate chips to the banana cake recipe to make it into a chocolate chip banana cake. Another cool thing in the book is “Mix & Match” recipes, taking a basic recipe from one page and mixing it with a component from another recipe (ie. a different filling or frosting).
It’s a fun book to read, suitable for any young baker. The recipes are simple to follow, no fancy ingredients required, and each recipe fits on one page (this is a “mini” cookbook, so smaller than a “regular” cookbook). Although this may seem like a very basic and “homey” type baking book, it leaves the door wide open for you to explore your own baking creativity using the easy-to-make recipes as a base for your own!
