Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Busy cooks with a houseful of hungry kids will appreciate this selection of 20 themed dinners from author Berman's (Little Black Book of Coffee, Little Black Book of Hors d'Oeuvres), emphasizing fun and family togetherness. Each menu-with titles like Silly Hat Night, Home on the Range, Under the Sea-consists of a handful of complementary dishes (Chuck Wagon Chicken Fried Steak, Chicken A La King in a Pastry Crown) that lean heavily toward kid-friendly favorites. Still, there's enough variety to keep things interesting and challenge adventurous eaters: roe or caviar dressing for a salad on Dress-Up Night, or a Vegsicle Salad, in which lettuce and frozen mixed vegetables are served with a vinaigrette. Parents will appreciate the crafts that accompany each menu-including antique treasure maps, magic wands and homemade placemats-to keep little hands busy while the adults focus on dinner. Most dishes are to-the-point and fairly easy to replicate, though a few, such as Berman's elaborate Castle Cupcakes and Under the Sea Shadowboxes may take a more time. Still, this is a fun and imaginative collection parents and kids should enjoy together.

I never liked cooking until I found Friday Night Bites. Now my boy and I have fun and bond when we cook together every other Friday night. We like the High Speed Baked Alaska and the Toad in the Hole recipes. Native American Fry Bread spurred a long conversation about a Native American tribe in our area and further Internet research. I'd definetly recommend this book to parents of children in pre-school or elementary school.

What a fabulous book!!! It helped me create a fun environment for my 8-year old daughter and I to cook together. The crafts are an added bonus that my litte one loves. When Emily and I are finished preparing a meal, we share the fruits of our labor with her father. Now Friday evenings are Friday Night Family Bite Nights in our house.

I have 2 young children and my wife and I work and aren't great cooks. I bought this book hoping to learn a little more about cooking and have a fun family activity. It's worked. This cook book is great and I recommend it.
