    I had read great things about this author's other cookbook and thought I would give the newest one a try. 2 stars for the Beautiful book, pictures and easy to read recipes. I am just not a fan of using old processed food in an attempt to be creative? They lost me at Fruity Pebble Merin...

    this is a review-in-progress that's going to be reposted as i (and maybe kelly) try more recipes in it. do not be alarmed if you see it more than once on your feed; i promise this is not groundhog day. this cookbook is full of many tasty-looking treats that i want to try. i mean tas...

    funny, accessible, tasty, and CRAZY unhealthy. the apple dumplings are AMAZING. and the recipe is very, very forgiving. i'm a super shitty baker, but i still managed to pull these together -- dough crumbling everywhere, more of it on my torso and the floor than in anything resemblin...

    More savory recipes this time, following Tosi's theme in her first book by citing kitschy, "regular"ingredients and turning them into something creative and fun. He tone and style of writing are accessible, charming, and empowering, much like her recipes. Jerk chicken wings and apple d...

    I enjoy reading the Milk Bar books, but the likelihood of me making anything from this book is not very high. Some very questionable things in here. I bookmarked a couple of things, we?ll see. ...

    It's a bit... weird. But the chicken fat biscuits will absolutely happen. ...

    Some of the recipes (stoner food with velveeta) look revolting, but this one earns love anyway for cookies and baking tips. Strong "voice, " but quite a bit too hipster for me! ...

    The sweet recipes are all decent and I might try some of them, but nearly every other recipe in the book looks or sounds disgusting, or like something a broke college student with an empty fridge and a cast iron stomach would throw together. ...

    Love her first cookbook, love Milk Bar. Bought this after seeing her really enjoyable episode on Chef's Table. Disappointing isn't an adequate word for this follow-up book, with recipes for concoctions such as Tang Toast, and a sandwich with Spaghettios, sausage links, and white bread....

    If you love the Momofuku Milk Barbook, Milk Bar Life is not for you. Momofuku Milk Bar changed how I bake, no word of a lie, so I was really excited when I heard Christina Tosi was writing another book. But Momofuku Milk Bar 2 this is not. Which is fine, but not what I was expecting...

    This book really devastated me. Momofuku Milk Bar (MMB) is literally my favorite cookbook. It not only changed the way I bake--it taught me how to bake from scratch. I used to love a Funfetti cake, but now I won't touch a cake mix. So imagine my shock when I see recipes in Christina To...

    I picked up this book at the library because Christina Tosi seems cool and I wanted to learn more about her. I did not get it for the recipes and have not tried the recipes - though pickled strawberry jam sounds too good to not try. I am amused, grossed out and slightly curious about t...

    Unfortunately I spent my early years in Catholic school taught by honest to goodness nuns wearing habits and wimples. This shapes a person in odd ways, leaving me permanently feeling a sense of unspecified guilt and the need to be clear when I am skating corners as the weekly confessio...

    My goal, every recipe! I love the different perspective on tried and true recipes. Also reviving regional recipes that I've never heard of. I hope I can find my corn cookie recipe, it's not in this book. ...

    I checked this book out from the library by accident when I was looking for the Momofuku cook book, but I remembered hearing good things about Christina's Tosi's first book, Momfuku Milk Bar. Milk Bar Life, however, was terrible. The first recipe, an oatmeal cookie recipe from her gran...

    This book makes me so happy. Yes, it is junk food, and yes, it is stuff she cooks at home for herself and no, it's not as fancy as Momofuku Milk Bar but you know what, I don't even care. There are lots of classic recipes in here like Apple Dumplings (which I tried in Philly and love...

    I copied one recipe out of this book so I gave the book 2 stars instead of 1. I've never been to the author's restaurant and if I based my decision to dine there solely on this cookbook, I wouldn't go. Where to begin? How about with the Spaghettios sandwich? 1 can Spaghettios 4 ma...

    This book is a whole lot of fun, nostalgia and love. I think people are easily dismayed from this book because it's not like momofuku milk bar, that is because this book was intended to bring a totally different purpose to readers. Christina tells stories of growing up, everyday life a...

    Have you read Momofuku? You know how that?s so advanced, yet made accessible enough for a home-kitchen? Well, that?s how this is, except in regards to sweets. Definitely worth the buy/read, but expect a challenge. ...

    Inspiring, motivating, and full of recipes that I want to prepare, good to mention that I made some cookies and they were amazing. I hope someday visit the Milk Bar in NY. ...

    As is the case with many other reviewers, I loved Momofuku Milk Bar, Christina Tosi's first book. It smashed through the walls of conventional baking books to bring a radical, fresh take that has the substance to back its weirdness up. Tosi's passion bleeds from every page. Some called...

    there was nothing spectacular in this cookbook. I will try the three marinade recipes in it but that's it...happy I just got it from the library and didn't go out and purchase it. ...
