- I never really paid attention to this book when we got it, I don't even know how we got it, but a few months ago our 8-year old brought it out and now we've enjoyed several dinners and treats cooked by her (with some supervision of course). Last night she did the Chocolate Bombs, and they were excellent.The recipes are very simple but if you follow them closely, it seems every dish is a success.
- My kids are not yet old enough to handle these recipes completely on their own, but they enjoy helping me. Even when they're not around I appreciate these quick, easy recipes.
- My 10 yr old grandson is interested in cooking and always wants to help in the kitchen. He occasionally makes a meal for the family. He loved this as a gift and was excited to get started cooking! I liked the illlustrations and the size of the pages and text.
- The book is ok. We haven't really tried the recipes yet, but the ones I've looked through look like they wouldn't be too flavorful or had weird ingredients. It would be nice if there was a kids cookbook out there that had easy basic recipes, like macaroni and cheese made with Velveeta or Cheez Whiz.Update - we have now tried two recipes out of this cookbook. One was for a chocolate muffin and the other was for chocolate mousse. The chocolate muffin had way too much cocoa in it and there was no baking soda or powder in it, so the muffin never rose. They were pretty dry too, might as well have just ate some straight cocoa. The chocolate mousse used dark chocolate and very little sugar, so the end result was incredibly bitter. Probably ok if you like dark chocolate, but most kids don't and even the dark chocolate lover in the house thought it was too bitter. Not impressed with this cookbook at all.
- Until this purchase, the "no argument foods" were sausages, unsauced pasta and salad vegetables. With this, there is now a more varied menu as well as less trauma for Mum!
- This is an amazing book! It has wonderful pictures and simple yet fun recipies.
