“Sugar Mommas” Kimberly “Momma” Reiner and Jenna Sanz-Agero, authors of “Sugar, Sugar: Every Recipe Has a Story,” were quick to alleviate the fears expressed by recipe submitter, Kevin Listen, that his mother’s recipe for Magic Marshmallow Puffs weren’t “highbrow” enough for their cookbook. Wrote the authors, “What? Oh, you are so wrong, Mr. Listen! Magic Marshmallow Puffs are a fabulous recipe created by a mom to serve to her babes after a long, cold day snowed in at the ranch. If it makes our eyebrows pop up, it’s highbrow enough for us! This recipe embodies the Sugar, Sugar spirit.” And, so the goodness flows, from one sweet recipe to the next, for tarts and pies, cookies and bars, candy and confections – including one for Momma Reiner’s legendary homemade marshmallows – all chronicled in a cookbook as noteworthy for its rich stories as it is for its recipes. As dessert historians and guardians of some of the most beloved dessert recipes from families across America, Reiner and Sanz-Agero not only celebrate the sweet life, but are actively involved in preserving it, as well.
