About the Author

Kelly Lambrakis lives in Southern California with her husband George and three boys, Kyle, Jake, and Nick. Her mother taught her how to cook at a very young age. As a little girl she and her mother loved making favorite recipes together, including homemade treats for their friends and family to enjoy. Years later, she continued that tradition, making it a priority to include her children in the kitchen like her mother did, in hopes that her boys would enjoy cooking too.

I have a 12 year old boy who loves hockey and baseball. This year in school he is starting to cook and comes home excited about the things he's made in school. I thought it would be great if there was a cookbook geared for kids with easy recipes. I found Boys Can Cook Too, when researching books on your site. What I love about the book is the way everything is explained. The recipes are not hard to follow and the ingredients are easy to purchase at the grocery store. However, my son loves the quotes at the bottom of the recipes the best. I'm looking forward to spending more time in the kitchen with my son and hopefully he'll have a better understanding about what's involved in cooking his favorite things. I will be purchasing more of Boys Can Cook Too for my family and friends and I highly recommend it to other sports loving family's like ours.

I was really pleased to see a book that not only encourages boys to cook but makes it "cool" to cook. My boys, ages 7 and 11, were both very eager to read the book and pick out recipes that appealed to them. The sport angle really attracted them, I've never seen them excited to cook until now. What a wonderful idea and I can't wait to start giving them as gifts to my other families with sport lovin boys. Great way to spend quality time with your boys.

This great idea--to bring boys into a working knowledge of cooking and baking--should have been around when I was growing up. Fortunately, I was trained in the kitchen by my Sicilian mother and grandmother. This easy to read book is more than just a rudimentary compilation of recipes. It starts with washing hands and ends with a thorough kitchen cleanup. The main idea is to bring sports-minded boys into the big leagues of some real fun food preparation. A great gift item for any time of the year. The recipes are easy, to the point, and--most importantly, delicious for the whole team to enjoy.

My sister purchases the books for my 6 year old son for Christmas. They are a HUGE hit! He loves to cook, they are super easy to follow, quick and taste wonderful. We made lunch today using two recipes out of the book, and he's already supercharged about what we are going to cook next, later on today. Thank you!!!

I purchased all three of the Boys Can Cook Too cookbooks for my 10 year old nephew for Christmas and was quite disappointed. I had expected pictures or graphics to help him understand the steps he needed to take. I did not expect so much of the content to be puzzles, games, and blank pages for 'notes' and 'my own personal recipes' within cookbooks with less than 100 pages. The recipes had fun names for the most part but several of them required further reading to understand what the end product would actually be.

When I purchased these books, I also purchased three books for my nieces from another author - those included many pictures of the recipe while in process and the finished products so that kids knew what they should be doing and what it should look like as they went step-by-step. I really didn't find any pictures in any of the Boys Can Cook Too cookbooks and that was a big disappointment for the price I paid for each cookbook. Because of the number of pages used for the 'games' within the book, the actual number of recipes was far less than I expected. Some of the recipes had more ingredients and steps than I would have expected for a child or young adult. The glossary of terms was helpful to a learning cook however I also thought more could have been done to make it more interesting. Within the actual recipe, the child is instructed to 'chop' or 'toast' or 'mix' but there is really no explanation of what that means or with what tool. The serving size and nutritional facts was nice but most current cookbooks have this information today.

At Christmas, he was more interested in looking through the cookbooks I bought for my nieces because of the pictures rather than any of the three Boys Can Cook Too! cookbooks. Overall, for the price I paid per cookbook, I think there were other options out there for the price that would have offered a better value and a better solution for a learning cook such as a 10 year old boy.
