Although we haven't tried too many recipes in this book yet, the ones we have tried were surprisingly good. Last night's dinner for example was Rosita's Beefy Enchilada Pie -- YUM!
Although there are steps that adults have to complete, the steps that are kid appropriate are clearly identified and are fun. For example last night's dinner had my son pushing a crust in the bottom of a pie pan and stirring various times. He also stayed to watch me dicing onions and peppers and shredding cheese. Lots of learning about food was happening. i also appreciate that the recipes are not full of "junky" foods and good ingredients are used. It is a book about BAKING so there are certainly lots of sweets recipes, but there are also main dishes and side dishes in the book as well.
It also features spiral binding to allow the pages to lie flat, a nice feature on any cookbook.
All in all, though, I was disappointed.
The pages are very, very thin, and I don't think they will hold up well to being turned by little, less-coordinated fingers. They certainly won't hold up to any drips or spatters during cooking.
Also, not one, single recipe features pictures of any of the steps of the recipe. Photos are of the final product, and the steps are awfully complex for little ones. For example, step 3 of one recipe reads, "In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, ricotta cheese, yogurt, sugar, and cinnamon, With a wooden spoon, stir in the drained noodles and raisins. Spoon the mixture into the oiled baking dish." That's all one step.
While I imagine that this was done to limit each recipe to a few "easy" steps, that's a lot to process. With preschoolers, draining the noodles is a step. Stirring is a step. Spooning is a step, and so on.
I would have loved to have see the Sesame puppets used to model and teach safety tips and baking techniques that the littlest kids can manage, such as how to use a whisk, how to measure with a measuring cup, or how to spoon cookie dough onto a cookie sheet. Instead, there are only drawings of the characters with speech bubbles saying things like "Count the different noodles you see in your pantry." or "Most eggs have just one yolk inside, but every once in awhile, there are two. And that's no yoke!". Not terrible, but not as strong as it could be.Read more ›
I am positive that who ever buys this book, grandparents, moms, dads, aunts, who ever, will not only have fun baking, but will find that it is a great way to spend time with the children and when the final product is done, share with the family, as the children gloat over what the final product is. easy instructions.
