over the internet. A couple of the recipes didn't turn out as I would have liked and I had to adjust the ingredients. But overall the recipes are fun to make and taste pretty good.
The book comes with 3 measuring spoons a dash, smidgen, and pinch. For the other measurments you'll have to use your own
I would have liked to have seen pictures of the finished products. Children are picture oriented. I have been making the recipes and taking pictures of the finished results and adding them to the recipe pages. When my granddaughter wants to bake, she will be able to see what the finished result will be.
While making a recipes I would advise that you turn to the page you want (the book has a spiral binder which makes it convenient) then stick the book into a clear plastic food bag to keep the pages from becoming soiled. The pages are a very absorbant type of paper. By putting it into a plastic bag, you will be able to follow the recipe and avoid getting any of the food on the page .
The book is small and thin, spiral-bound which makes it easy to lay flat. The tiny measuring spoons are attached by a ring which is easy to remove and reattach.
The pages look like recycled paper, so I second the suggestion of putting the book in a Ziploc bag to protect the pages. In fact, I did do that.
The author mentions in her introductory pages to fill the pans no more than halfway. I wish she'd put a yield for each recipe. I have no idea how much each batch will make. I also don't know how big the cookie dough balls should be or how many cookies to put in a pan or how many pans I should expect to use. I think maybe each batch will yield two pans worth of food, but I will have to try them all out to see.
Included are recipes for individual batches of bakery goods and then there are recipes for mixes. I was really more interested in making the mixes to make the baking go by faster. I just want to scoop, mix and bake. That's all my daughter needs to feel like she's baking. There are nine such mix recipes included and one frosting mix recipe.
We tried making a tub of the cocoa mocha brownie mix yesterday. I'm not sure how many batches it will make, but I'm guessing it will make about 12 batches. We made one batch out of it and my son loved it. He said it was very good. I tried a tiny piece and it was chewy, not bad at all. For the record, when you scoop 1/3 cup out of the mix and follow the instructions, the brownie mix will yield 2 pans of brownies per batch.

My daughter has found we need to add more water or butter to every recipe she has used. They will not form spoonfuls or balls as noted in the recipe otherwise. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Working4two
