I heard about this book in a newspaper article, and since I have a young son who always wants to help cook, it seemed a natural purchase.

Although we haven't tried too many recipes in this book yet, the ones we have tried were surprisingly good. Last night's dinner for example was Rosita's Beefy Enchilada Pie -- YUM!

Although there are steps that adults have to complete, the steps that are kid appropriate are clearly identified and are fun. For example last night's dinner had my son pushing a crust in the bottom of a pie pan and stirring various times. He also stayed to watch me dicing onions and peppers and shredding cheese. Lots of learning about food was happening. i also appreciate that the recipes are not full of "junky" foods and good ingredients are used. It is a book about BAKING so there are certainly lots of sweets recipes, but there are also main dishes and side dishes in the book as well.

This is a cute book, with lots of cheerful, colorful drawings of the Sesame Street characters. In that sense, it is appealing to preschoolers.
It also features spiral binding to allow the pages to lie flat, a nice feature on any cookbook.

All in all, though, I was disappointed.
The pages are very, very thin, and I don't think they will hold up well to being turned by little, less-coordinated fingers. They certainly won't hold up to any drips or spatters during cooking.

Also, not one, single recipe features pictures of any of the steps of the recipe. Photos are of the final product, and the steps are awfully complex for little ones. For example, step 3 of one recipe reads, "In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, ricotta cheese, yogurt, sugar, and cinnamon, With a wooden spoon, stir in the drained noodles and raisins. Spoon the mixture into the oiled baking dish." That's all one step.
While I imagine that this was done to limit each recipe to a few "easy" steps, that's a lot to process. With preschoolers, draining the noodles is a step. Stirring is a step. Spooning is a step, and so on.

I would have loved to have see the Sesame puppets used to model and teach safety tips and baking techniques that the littlest kids can manage, such as how to use a whisk, how to measure with a measuring cup, or how to spoon cookie dough onto a cookie sheet. Instead, there are only drawings of the characters with speech bubbles saying things like "Count the different noodles you see in your pantry." or "Most eggs have just one yolk inside, but every once in awhile, there are two. And that's no yoke!". Not terrible, but not as strong as it could be.

Terrific yummy recipes for way more than the desserts you are expecting baking represent. Great photos for each recipe. Clear step by step directions. Bought this for my young nephew and as soon as I looked at it I knew I wanted to try some recipes myself. Another adult relative saw it before I got it wrapped and said "This looks perfect for me. I'm like I kid when it comes to my kitchen skills. Can I have it for my birthday too?" Looks like I'll be buying a few more copies, lol.

After seeing this cookbook highlighted on Good Morning America I knew we had to have it! They were making Red Velvet Cupcakes. They used beets for red instead of food coloring. We made them and guess what? You CAN NOT taste the beets. So pleasantly surprised. We also got the "C is for Cooking" book. The recipes have kid friendly tasks and this Mom loves all the ways of including healthy food items, that wouldn't otherwise get eaten, in the recipes!

Bought this for my 3 year old nephew who loves to help his mom bake. He loves it!! I also got him a little chefs outfit to go along with it. The recipes are simple enough and have his favorite Sesame Street characters. I would definitely recommend as a gift for any budding chef.

We already had the C is for Cooking book and loved that so I thought we could give this a try.

My 4 year old loves to help in the kitchen and loves Sesame Street so why not pair the 2 and learn about healthy foods, measuring, counting, and putting snacks and meals together in a fun and innovative way?!

We love this book. We got it to help my preschool kiddos embrace more options for food. They pull it out when we meal plan and have asked to make items over again! It has brought variety to our table which is a welcome change for this mom.

This book is so much fun to do with the grandchildren no matter what age. I have a 4 year old, 9 year old and a 14 year old, all who enjoy baking with me from this book. Not to mention eating also. This is a book that I hope will be passed down.. it is fun and who doesn't love the characters? The really rotten banana bread is very very good.. ask my family..I have collected all of the books and this was the last one I had to add to the collection.

I am positive that who ever buys this book, grandparents, moms, dads, aunts, who ever, will not only have fun baking, but will find that it is a great way to spend time with the children and when the final product is done, share with the family, as the children gloat over what the final product is. easy instructions.
