A local author is "sticking" her claim on a tasty, sugary treat.Eileen Talanian is one of those cooks who would rather make it herself than buy it. And she hopes you'll feel the same once you try her new cookbook.

It is called "Marshmallows: Homemade Gourmet Treats." It is all about making your own marshmallows.

It takes just minutes, with very little equipment.

First, you will need a candy thermometer of some sort. After a few minutes on the stove, you switch to a mixer to whip in that fluffy goodness.

Unlike the bagful from the supermarket, you can cut your marshmallows any way you like.

Making your own allows you enjoy marshmallows any way you like, and you'll find yourself in good company.
