“Shelly's signature genius creativity for mouth watering breakfast treats, easy family-friendly dinners, and indulgent desserts shines through in her new cookbook! Packed with photos for each recipe, she teaches us that food should always be approachable and fun, and dessert should definitely come first. Somehow she always knows just what you'rein the mood for, be it warm brown sugar cinnamon bread, a huge slice of toffee banana cream pie, or a plate packed with ranch-style mac & cheese.”

– Sally McKenney, owner of Sally's Baking Addiction

"The Cookies and Cups Cookbook is my new go-to book for every decadent dessert imaginable. I was instantly hooked with one peek at the Hot Fudge Sundae Cake. It’s like Shelly is inside my head, coming up with every fabulous flavor combination that I never even knew that I wanted! This book will live in my kitchen until the pages are splattered with melted butter and drizzled in chocolate."

– Jessica Merchant, author of Seriously Delish

"Jaronsky, the creator of the website Cookies & Cups, presents over 125 selections with sweets in the front... Basics such as chocolate chip cookies and an all-butter pie dough are offset with her unique throw-caution-to-the-wind selections such as Junk Food Marshmallow Squares (complete with potato chips) and Fruity Pebbles Cake... This is a fun selection and one for which it's probably best not to include the nutritional breakdown."

– Publishers Weekly

"The Cookies and Cups Cookbook is a joyous celebration of easy-to-make, over-the-top treats. These recipes are perfect for bake sales, sleepovers, or special gatherings...If you like decadent desserts that aren’t hard to make, this is the cookbook for you."
