We also have Emeril's books and a few Cooking with Mickey books. In Emeril's books the one thing I have noticed is the amount of time it can take to make some of the recipes. On a Saturday, I would think nothing of preparing a four course meal that takes three or four hours, but my kids don't have the patience for that yet. The Mickey books, although they are some of my favorites, are rather complex. Rachel Ray's book is simple and yet fun for the beginning cook. The results while not immediate, are tasty and don't require a lot of patience to reproduce.
If you have kids and they show ANY interest at all in cooking or just helping you out...I highly recommend this book.
(One tip though- as with any cookbook, you may want to cut back on some of the butter, oil and salt used in some of the recipes. A few of them are a little salty or oily for my taste)
This book provides a good foundation in cooking and healthy eating in the future. It teaches the basic methods in cooking, and introduces your child to different fresh herbs and healthy veggies, such as cilantro and arugula. In a world where many young adults don't know how to cook, Rachael does our kids a big service by teaching them how to cook restaurant-quality meals at home.
The spiral-bound format makes it easy to use, and you can't beat the price!
One thing, I can't imagine anyone eating the portion sizes as they are listed. My kids made the "Pasta and Trees" in the 4-6 section. It calls for 1lb of pasta and says it makes 4 servings. We cut it down to 1/2 lb., and had more than enough for 2 adults and 3 kids (7, 5, & 2). Use common sense, but if you use the amounts listed for pasta, be prepared to have leftovers.
1. There are no pictures of the finished product to see what it should look like.
2. Some of the recipes need more detail. Use marshmallows, okay, which size??? Just little things like that so you then have to experiment.

Disappointed in format. Not a kid friendly book, no pictures for kids to see the recipe item. Would not buy had I been able to page through it first.Published 9 months ago by Deanne C.
Perfect for a beginning chef! The recipes are based on age group and it gets more advanced as you go along. But nothing a kid can't handle!Published 11 months ago by Amanda
