We have a 5-YO (pre-reader, starting K this week) and an 8-YO. Every recipe has the ingredients listed by name and a little color drawing, so the 5YO can "read" the recipes! It's really cute to watch her interpret the drawings, but she gets them right about 80% of the time.
The book has lots of salad dressings, some dips, sandwiches, drinks, etc. It uses a lot of yogurt (pretty parfaits), tortillas (roll-ups, and for triangular sandwiches), and just lots of regular food ingredients. The back page is an index of recipes by main ingredient, so if you have something on hand, you can search that way.
The ingredients lists are actually split into 2, a list of tools including measuring spoons, plastic knife, cutting board etc. and then food ingredients. Like I mentioned previously, each item (tools and ingredients) has a matching drawing.
We've made a few things (parfaits with crushed cereal because we didn't have granola, and egg cream) and they LOVE making them and then eating them too, of course. I need to get them to try some of the sandwiches...
I would highly recommend this book for age 4.5-10.

It is great that the recipes do not require anything hot or sharp.
