An honest cookbook

It was pretty frustrating looking for a kids' cookbook for my nephew. After looking at a few, I had seen about eight recipes for peanut butter on celery, and not a lot else. Then I found this book. I agree with its premise, that children are not all idiots. This is the only book I found treats the young reader with respect. It's about real food, the kind that has a place at the supper table. My nephew knew the difference, too. We made a few of the recipes, and had to scold his mother for eating too many of the cupcakes. Most telling, his grandparents visited the week after I gave him the book. He insisted on making breakfast for them - pancakes from this book - by himself. They were impressed, and so was I when I heard about it. Not bad for age 7.

Great cookbook

I'm an 11 year old kid. You might think I'd not like cooking, but I do. This cookbook is great. I love it. Great for any kid.

Great Fun-

I decided to have my son (5) help with the cooking. Each week I let him choose one recipe from this (or Pretend Soup) and we cook together. He is eating much better, has learned a few kitchen skills, and tried new dishes. Her pictures are easy for even the younger kids to understand, but adults will still have to help with these recipes for the little ones. We now make pizza from scratch, and have more fun in the kitchen than we ever did before.

Wonderful Recipes & Fun Times

My 9-year-old daughter and I love this cookbook! Here's the review in her words: The recipes are outstanding and not one has gone wrong. The instructions are easy to read and to understand and her writing style is nice (for kids and adults). My mom likes the recipes because they're pretty healthy. My favorite recipe is Spaghetti Pie - I've made it a few times and it's always great. I also like the Little Pizzas and the Pita Spirals (that we make with tortillas). This is a great book and every family should have it.

My son reads this book in bed at night

Most 7-year old boys probably wouldn't consider a cookbook to be good bedtime reading. But I'm convinced my son dreams about what he wants to cook next.He's made several of the recipies already, and seems to have the rest on file in his head -- He offered his book for a shortcake recipie when we had fresh strawberries.The directions are simple and easy to follow, with helpful illustrations. They describe how to measure things carefully - for example, using a measuring cup for dry ingredients and a glass pitcher for liquids. The kid-friendly techniques, such as separating eggs with a funnel, really work. And, there are careful notes about when an adult should help.
