Kids Around the World Celebrate!: The Best Feasts and Festivals from Many Lands (Kids Around the World) Dec 20, 2007
My daughter and I just made date nut cookies from a recipe in this book. They ended up being disasterous and a rather expensive mistake to make. The ingredient proportions and the oven temperature we obviously incorrect.
Fun for you and the kids Feb 9, 2000
We were looking for something to do with our twins the other night and made a recipe for Chinese new year from this book. It was delicious and lots of fun to do together. Plus the kids loved doing the activities. Highly reccomended.
