Yummy recipes, great photos Jun 1, 2008
This cookbook has a lot of fun and easy recipes for kids. It also has great photos and step-by-step instructions. Many appealing recipes for children and adults.
pleases all Apr 26, 2008
We all love this cook book. The photos are beautiful and recipes easy to follow. A few are difficult for younger cooks, but just looking at those recipes makes you want to grow up faster! Recipes cover breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, and desserts. Healthy, international recipes that kids and adults will want to make and eat. This one is a winner.
I was incredibly impressed with this book! Apr 14, 2008
I think this is the perfect cookbook for a child who has mastered the extremely basic parts of preparing food (such as peanut butter and jelly sandwiches), and wants to learn more. I recommend it for any child who is mature enough to use sharp knives and cooking over heat without injuring him or herself.
The best thing about this book is that the step-by-step instructions are clear and easy to follow. I got this book as a newly married adult because it contains many recipes which I assume are difficult, but which I am confident that I can make using this cookbook. (For example: chicken nuggets made from chicken breast pieces; and chocolate truffles). I wish I had discovered this book years ago, because I believe that with it I could have learned these recipes as a child.
For Older Children Mar 3, 2008
This cookbook is not what I could call your basic kids' cookbook. I feel it would be good for older children or for children who have a flair for the gourmet. The recipes have more ingredients and more steps than the usual children's recipe, and a few of the recipes are for dishes that most kids wouldn't touch with a ten-foot pole, such as "Salade Nicoise" with anchovies and black olives. Of course you could always modify the recipe. The good thing about it is that it has nice pictures of the finished item and several of the steps. All in all, I am not sorry I bought this book, and like every cookbook, it is "hit and miss" recipes, but we rely more on "The Everything Kids' Cookbook," for more basic recipes, even though it doesn't have nice pictures like the DK book does.
