5.0 out of 5 stars Great book to let your kids cook in the kitchen! Feb. 27 2013
By Canadianladybug TOP 50 REVIEWER
I'm blessed. My kids enjoy learning about cooking and my oldest loves to prepare a special meal. One day after this book has entered the house, he came to me and asked me if we could have pizza for supper.

"Pizza? HummmM! We might not have all we need. "

But he had it all figured out...

"I'll make the dough from this book (and he proceeded to show me the Cook It book we had just received) and we could put ground chicken, green pepper and bacon."

"That sounds interesting - sure go ahead!" And my son left me grinning to prepare the supper.

He proceeded to make the dough from the recipe found in the Light Bites section.

Ingedients

3 2/3 cups white bread flour
1/4 oz active dry yeast
1 pinch of salt
1 cup warm water
1/4 cup olive oil.

You will also need the following equipment: strainer, large glass bowl, wooden spoon, plastic wrap, baking sheet or pan, and a rolling pin.

Shift the flour into a bowl and add the yeast and salt. Make a well in the center, then slowly add the warm water.
Mix with a wooden spoon until all the ingredients come together. Add the olive oil and continue to mix until you have a soft dough.
Knead firmly using the heel of your hand, folding the dough over as you go. Do this until the dough becomes soft and spongy.
Put the dough in a bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and let stand in a warm place for 30-40 minutes, or until the dough has doubled in size.
Pull the dough out on a floured surface, and knead with your knuckles to punch down the air. Fold the dough over and knead again. It will become elastic and stretchy.
Divide the dough into four balls. Roll each ball out onto a floured surface until it is about 1/2 inch thick.

Bought this for both my nieces, they're both 8, and they both loved it and started picking out what they were going to make! Pictures were awesome and I loved the photo glossary!
4.0 out of 5 stars Kids can cook it! June 25 2013

This is a very good cookbook for children because it has been thoughtfully put together for them to be successful right away. The book is a masterful primer that illustrates the basic but essential kitchen tools, explains fundamental techniques of cooking and provides clear, simple instructions for the beginning repertoire of recipes that all competent cooks will employ on a daily basis and explanatory photographs of the transitional segments of recipe steps which help ensure success. In addition, the book provides sound nutritional advice and healthy eating priniciples.
The range of recipes is completely adequate to take the child from third grade tea party to college survival meals. For example pg. 18 smoothies and pg. 44 sandwiches to pg. 42's four ways with pizzas and 90-93 roasted chicken and vegetables. Breakfast, snack, appetizer, main dish and dessert dishes are plentiful.

We had a yummy meal that night! And I know for sure that we will explore other recipes from this book. Already we would like to do the Mashed Potato Pies and the Sunflower Loaves.

The book contains over 100 easy recipes that your kids can explore and experiment to make a meal for you. It's a great way to prepare them for life so that they can cook when they leave home. There are four main sections in the book:

Breakfast Bites: French toast, four ways with eggs, fruity cereals, fruit smoothies, fruit bars.
Light Bites: Tomato and couscous salad, tuna and bean salad, picnic salad, tomato soup, butternut squash soup, basic bread, Italian bread, sunflower loaves, cornbread, pizza dough, four ways with pizzas, club sandwich, pita pockets, vegetable platters, four ways with appetizers.
Main Meals: Lamp hotpot, sausage hotpot, beef pasta, fresh tomato pasta, vegetable lasagna, rice balls, jambalaya, potato salad, fishcakes, mashed potato pies, chili corn carne, mini burgers, BBQ chicken, four ways with kebabs, vegetable tart, tomato and eggplant layers, four ways with sauces, mixed beans stir-fry, rainbow beef, marinated chicken, four ways with roasted vegetables, roast chicken, grilled chicken.
Sweet Things: strawberry tarts, four ways with cookies, cupcakes, sponge cake, gingerbread, brownies, carrot and orange muffins, frozen yogurt, mint chocolate pots, fridge cake, meringues, blueberry cheesecake, oat crumble.
Then at the end of the book, your child can learn how to plan a party, a three-course meal and a picnic.

I find it important to prepare our children to be able to cook and be wise in the food that they take. It is our responsibility as parents to equip them in being young adults who can do more than just boil some water. That's why when my kids were younger we used to go to cooking class together and why I still think it is great for them to be able to explore new tastes. My kids are used to explore new flavors. One way of doing so is to let them cook themselves. Sure it takes supervision at first but it will come one day that they can do it themselves. Why not let them have fun in the kitchen during March Break and prepare something different for a change.
