From Goodreads:
Rosemary Bliss’s family has a secret. It’s the Bliss Cookery Booke—an ancient, leather-bound volume of enchanted recipes like Stone Sleep Snickerdoodles and Singing Gingersnaps. Rose and her siblings are supposed to keep the Cookery Booke under lock and whisk-shaped key while their parents are out of town, but then a mysterious stranger shows up. “Aunt” Lily rides a motorcycle, wears purple sequins, and whips up exotic (but delicious) dishes for dinner. Soon boring, nonmagical recipes feel like life before Aunt Lily—a lot less fun.

So Rose and her siblings experi-ment with just a couple of recipes from the forbidden Cookery Booke.

A few Love Muffins and a few dozen Cookies of Truth couldn’t cause too much trouble . . . could they?

Kathryn Littlewood’s culinary caper blends rich emotional flavor with truly magical wit, yielding one heaping portion of hilarious family adventure.

I have never read a book on my phone. I always found it hard to focus and it didn’t feel like reading a book. Not fun.

I was on vacation and not near a light but wanted to read, so I picked up my phone to give it a try. I picked this book to read and it was so good I read it every chance that I had.

So magical!
So sugary! (Yuuuummm.)
So well-written!

I loved it.

After finishing the book, I immediately logged on to my library account to put the next two books on hold. I can’t wait to read them!
