Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3–6—This colorful and slick offering is divided into nine chapters, most focusing on dishes for specific events like bake sales, family picnics, and sleepovers. Brief general cooking tips are also included, along with advice on manners relating to various foods (as Deen notes in a foreword, "In the South, manners have always been important…."). This old-fashioned tone prevails, and Deen's many fans will eat it up. Recipes range from easy (German Chocolate Pies involve no more than assembling ingredients in a prepared pie shell) to difficult (Pumpkin Roll with Cream Cheese Icing involves carefully rolling a thin baked cake). Many of the savory dishes are hearty and rich, like the Bacon-Cheddar Meatloaf. This book excels at having wonderfully complete safety precautions. Each recipe is accompanied by a pictured list of ingredients and utensils needed, but nutritional information is not provided. The illustrations show a multicultural cast of characters, yet Deen suggests wearing Santa hats for a "holiday bake sale," with nary a mention of Hanukkah or Kwanzaa. So while this won't be for everyone, it will go over well in many communities, especially where the author's TV show is popular.—Lauralyn Persson, Wilmette Public Library, IL

From the eye-popping end papers of this lay-flat (internal coil bindings are pretty spiffy if you ask me) cookbook, kids will savor each page right up to the index at the end. Every double page spread has a graphic border that will entice young cooks to sample the recipes with their eyes while cooking up delicious treats. From the same team that produced Paula Deen's My First Cookbook, this handsome hardcover volume is sure to get lots of use. Starting with Cooking Tips, and a Glossary (how sensible to put it at the front of the book!) and a nifty section on how to measure different kinds of ingredients (sounds trivial but the little pictures are really great instructional tools to show kids how to deal with liquids, spices, flour, brown sugar and butter) the chapters each include seven or eight recipes. Chapter One: Morning Muffins encourages kids to make different kinds of breakfast muffins to swap and enjoy. Chapter Two: The Bake Sale has best-selling goodies most kids will be able to manage. Chapter Three: Pool Party is a Mexican fiesta with salsa, enchiladas, chili, even sopapillas. Chapter Four: What's New for Lunch features salad, pasta primavera, wraps, quiche and sandwiches. Chapter Five: A Sleepover offers fondues, smoothies, and breakfast cheesecake. Chapter Six: The Family Cooking Night introduces a new tradition that Deen feels very passionate about. Chapter Seven: Christmas Cooking Party includes cookies, truffles, breads. Chapter Eight: The Family Picnic Menu features deviled eggs, potato salad, sandwiches, brownies and cookies. Chapter Nine: Mother's Day and Father's Day offers popovers, meatloaf, biscuits, frittata and more. Every chapter starts with a section on Manners because Deen feels that kids want to know how to be the best they can be.Read more ›

After getting her other cookbook, "Paula Deen's My First Cookbook" and finding it rather ho-hum and blah, I really expected very little from this cookbook. However, many of the problems with the first cookbook have been fixed making a far better and more clearly defined cookbook. While there are still flaws and frustrations, this cookbook is far more enjoyable.

The first cookbook had recipes that varied from overly basic to fairly complex (Ants on a Log followed by a bread recipe requiring yeast... Stone Soup and then a few pages away a recipe for sirloin beef kabobs and grilled pineapple) making it hard to figure out what the age range was the book was trying to appeal to, and while a few of the recipes were pretty creative, most were homestyle standards that don't really require recipes to complete and can become boring. This cookbook, however, the complexity of the recipes are all about the same so the book appeals to a standard skill set, which is really nice. It makes the book less choppy, easier to use, and frankly more appealing to read. And by shortening the recipe instructions which, in the first book were overly detailed to the point of being too complicated, it's just a far easier read. The overall creativity of the recipes is far better than in the first book, reflecting more the style of Paula Deen and giving the book a personality that the first one just didn't have, making this a cookbook you're actually likely to refer to far more often because the recipes are something to get excited about. It also is a great way to get kids who are eager to cook to think "outside of the box," putting together flavors and meals that are more interesting to make and eat than Sloppy Joe's and Vegetables with Magic Cheese Sauce.

Ok. We love Paula. We love her Gooey cakes. We love every dish (other than the recipe for prime rib that ruined a holiday) - butter all the way - calories, yes... but taste is over the top. NOT HERE! I knew it was not a healthy cookbook. I have those, too. I was just looking for some fun recipes for my kids to make with gift / food ideas they could share at the holidays to make them understand giving from the heart (of the house ;) ) . We made the meatloaf - more like a big hamburger patty - tasty but as my friend said, "What with bacon in it isn't." I just thought good way to use leftover bacon. Everything else was a disaster! And the topper was - my kids picked the stained glass cookies to give as xmas presents to loved ones. They copied it by hand, measured, shopped for the ingredients, did everything. The dough was a sticky ucky mess. It stuck to everything regardless of additional flour. It makes one 1/2 of her yield quote given with a depends on - mostly because the dough "melts" within five minutes of being outside the fridge. I broke it into three parts for my kids to take turns. Didn't have time to use the cutters before the SHORTENING and TWO STICKS OF BUTTER made it a pool of sticky goop unable to be cut TWICE for the window shapes inside... Many far better recipes for sugar cookies out there - heck - go for the tubes in the store - they are even better and you add some lemon extract - no one can tell and you get raves. Really with the pimento loaf? Who do you give that to? And what kid eats that? Does her grandson? I doubt it - or that his mom would feed him this on a regular basis. Lastly - nada to go into a lunchbox! Just saying.
