1.0 out of 5 stars Money Is In The Mix...along with High Sodium October 21, 2013
After previewing this in a local bookstore, my impression is this "cookbook" was nothing more than a money-making vehicle for Ms Gosselin that was hastily churned out, as there are several sloppy editing errors, along with mismatched photos. The premise for a Kate Gosselin "cookbook" lacks credibility--I've read articles where she has been quoted as saying she feeds only organic foods to her kids, so for me to believe her kids have eaten these recipes filled with non-organic, high-sodium, MSG-laced ingredients is difficult to swallow. No pun intended...

Many of the recipes require high-sodium ingredients such as canned soup or shoyu, which I would NOT want to feed to my son. Cooking from cans is not my idea of a cookbook, and if I wanted to cook that way, I can order one of Campbell's cookbooks here on Amazon. At least their cookbooks are proofread, the recipes tested, and attractively and professionally presented. If Kate has to rely on high-sodium, MSG-laced ingredients in her recipes for flavoring, I have to question her qualifications to author a cookbook in the first place.

There wasn't anything new, creative or imaginative in this "cookbook", just very basic recipes that you can easily find on the internet; her recipes appear to be copied verbatim from recipe-sharing websites. Some of her recipes were vague on the quantity of ingredients, which indicates how amateurish this publishing endeavor was. I have yet to see a GOOD cookbook where several recipes do not list the exact amount for ingredients, so it appears there was no "testing" of these recipes.

This "cookbook" seems to be rehashed internet recipes along with rehashed old photos of her kids. It is a sordid attempt to stay relevant in the public eye and clearly a last-gasp attempt to cash in on the Gosselin name.

1.0 out of 5 stars Seriously? November 14, 2013
Did Kate get these recipes off soup cans? Save your money and don't bother buying this so called recipe book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Please October 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Honestly I believe that anyone who writes a cookbook should have honest skills and training. This is a celebrity vanity book that happens to have a few non-original recipes. I cooked like this when I was 12 for my large family (under adult supervision).

1.0 out of 5 stars nothing new October 16, 2013
By michele
The book uses a lot of prepared ingredients with a twist or two that all of us have done before. I wouldn't call it healthy at all. I am not sure why Kate Gosselin feels qualified to write a cookbook..... you will find better recipes from ones that churches or school groups put together as fundraisers.

1.0 out of 5 stars LOL, READ REVIEWS FIRST! June 29, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
The Amazon customer reviews of this "cook book" are FAR more entertaining then the book and they are free!!!!!! Read the reviews and don't waste your money, you can see pictures of the kids for free on the web and also get MUCH better, healthier, tastier recipes on the web for free. If you are an Amazon Prime member you can get " Kate Gosselin, How She Fooled The World" for free too! Thank you Amazon reviewers, you have made my day!

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of Money September 29, 2013

Format:Kindle Edition
What a terrible waste of time and money. Recipes seem to be recycled from the back of soup cans and internet recipe sites. You can do much,much better searching the Food Network or for free. Just My Opinion
