Clear step by step directions.

Although the reason why it did not get 5 stars is because some of the recipes are for dishes that little kiddos would not normally eat and enjoy.

I have a 4 year old, 9 year old and a 14 year old, all who enjoy baking with me from this book.

I heard about this book in a newspaper article, and since I have a young son who always wants to help cook, it seemed a natural purchase.

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.

Terrific yummy recipes for way more than the desserts you are expecting baking represent. Great photos for each recipe. Clear step by step directions. Bought this for my young nephew and as soon as I looked at it I knew I wanted to try some recipes myself. Another adult relative saw it before I got it wrapped and said "This looks perfect for me. I'm like I kid when it comes to my kitchen skills. Can I have it for my birthday too?" Looks like I'll be buying a few more copies, lol.

After seeing this cookbook highlighted on Good Morning America I knew we had to have it! They were making Red Velvet Cupcakes. They used beets for red instead of food coloring. We made them and guess what? You CAN NOT taste the beets. So pleasantly surprised. We also got the "C is for Cooking" book. The recipes have kid friendly tasks and this Mom loves all the ways of including healthy food items, that wouldn't otherwise get eaten, in the recipes!

This is a cute book, with lots of cheerful, colorful drawings of the Sesame Street characters. In that sense, it is appealing to preschoolers.
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.

Haven't tried many recipes yet. Have used my daughter's copy, very nice recipes.
Looking forward to trying more, plus few new added ones.

Though the copy I have has some writing inside it lukas should still be able to use it to some degree.
The majority of the book is still readable so he should be able to use it with help from Maggie (my sister).
I hope that he will like it.

Why?

Some of the recipes are pretty gross (onions, eggplant, and sliced tomatoes in a pie??? I myself WOULD pass, yuck!)

I know how parents want to encourage kids to eat healthy and more veggies, but gosh, let them enjoy hotdogs, chicken fingers, and mac-n-cheese now and then, too.

And some of the recipes do sound pretty good enough to make for myself (I have no kids; I found that colorful book in a library, BTW!) like strawberry muffins, carrot puff, and these delicious-looking brownies (at least the author didn't suggest carob chips, thank goodness.) Too bad some of the ingredients are a bit pricey for me to get in one sitting, though (like whole wheat flour, ground almonds, and wheat germ, for one thing.)

Oh, and Abby Cadabby and the girl monsters are CUTE, too! :D
