Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Sort of the children's version of Newman and Hotchner's Newman's Own Cookbook (LJ 10/15/98), also published this month, this includes recipes like Tic-Tac-Toe Quesadillas, Bagelroonies, Baked Hamburger Pasta Casserole, and others designed for kid appeal. In fact, many of the recipes are from elementary school classes, winners in the kids category of Newman's annual Good Housekeeping recipe contest. The Hole in the Wall Gang refers to the camps Newman has established (the first one in Connecticut; now there are six in all, with two in Europe) for children with cancer and other serious blood diseases; all profits from the book will benefit the camps. For most collections.

I am a loyal user of Newman's Own and Newman's Own Organics. This is a fun cookbook. My daughter and I enjoyed making the Jack in the Beanstalk Soup. It is nice to have a cookbook including so many of the Newman products. Lemonade Chicken Wings? Very tasty and a nice variety from the spicy.
Congratualtions Mr Newman. I hope this book makes the kids a lot of money!

I love Paul Newman. He does so much for kids and other charitable organizations. It's hard to believe an actor like Paul Newman would be so active in non-profit organizations. It's also nice that he does it through offering awesome products that help your family out too.

This cookbook is an awesome example of that. They contain mostly healthy recipes that contribute to a well-balanced and nutritious meal. While this cookbook isn't for cooking with the youngest of children, it is perfect for children over 5, even up to teenagers. One of the things that I love about this book is that it has a Vegetables/Sides category that is packed with vege meals for kids, along with suggestions on what to add to make even the ickiest vegetables appealing to the most of... ahem... Discriminating palates. :) The "Ten Tips for food and Kitchen Safety" tips are great for parents who're teaching kitchen safety.

The book is filled with anecdotal stores and letters from children and other people impacted by Paul Newman's "Hole in the Wall Gang" group. Some of the stories are hilarious (my favorite was the one from the 13 year old who said she likes Paul Newman's Dressing because it doesn't give her dad "the squirts").

For charitable purposes alone, that makes this book worth the investment. But something about knowing you've bought a cookbook that helps reinforce good eating, where you can teach your kids how to cook anything from Chicken Soup and Stone Soup, Tic-Tac-Toe Quesadillas, Peace Pasta, Three-Cheese Potato Gratin, Cheddar Muffins, and other great, family friendly meals... I don't know... It just makes you feel really good. :) I don't know what's best about this book...

The books recipes are fun and easy. Some of My family members will not eat beef, and the Turkey meatballs and spaghetti was an excellent sub for beef meatballs.
