4 out of 5 stars on GoodReads


This colorful book of recipes for children has clear instructions for simple food made from scratch. Each recipe includes a little blurb from the authors about why they love the food and how their parents or grandparents taught them to cook.

The photographs are beautiful, with bright colors and mouth-watering food on every page.
This cookbook includes recipes for Breakfast, Lunch, Appetizers, Main Dishes, Sides, and Desserts. With easy recipes for pancakes, omelettes, grilled cheese sandwiches, hummus, breaded chicken, pizza, potatoes and veggies, chocolate cake, apple pie, and many more, this cookbook is simple enough for children or teens to learn to cook on their own or with the help of an adult.

As long as the child is old enough (and responsible enough) to use a knife and an oven, they will enjoy cooking these recipes for their family and friends! The book includes warnings about using a knife properly, how to clean your cutting board, how to handle raw meat and avoid bacteria, and how to be careful using an oven or skillet.

I tried the recipe for Crispiest Breaded Chicken and it was delicious!
