Product Description


Cooking Fun will have mothers fondly recalling their early culinary adventures and will introduce a younger generation to the delights to be had in the kitchen. The title says it all---it's as fun as it is easy, and each recipe will have you turning the page to try the next. (Eileen Goudge, author of Otherwise Engaged and Something Warm from the Oven)

NYC mom Rae Grant embraces a retro sensibility in Cooking Fun: 121 Simple Recipes to Make with Kids, with letterpress and collage illustrations inspired by cookbooks of the 1920s and '30s. Throwback recipes include, in addition to those already mentioned, Ohio Sloppy Joes and Sunny Day Cheese Biscuits. (Time Out New York)

great inspiration for your childs next meal April 21 2009
By Sonoma mom - Published on
Format: Hardcover-spiral Verified Purchase
We have a toddler at home, and this book if a wonderful resource for us, the parents who know how to cook, but who need simple reminders of what little kids actually like to eat.And we were tired of cooking frozen processed food for our baby that he loves but we knew we could do better.So now we can turn to any page and be inspired to fix a wholesome meal for the entire family. Our usual meals were overly complicated for his tastes, but this books offers wonderful ideas that we can very easily embellish to meet our more grown up tastes, although the recipes are very lovable on their own. We couldn't put it down the first night we got it. And the step by step instructions are actually nice reminders of how to get back to basics. Its also a great gift for any family with young kids.

Useful, cool book Oct. 9 2008
By Petithall - Published on
Format: Hardcover-spiral
First off, this book looks great-- visually, all that stuff. Retro, but in the nicest possible way. The recipes start simple, but they offer additions that grow in complexity. There are also unusual ideas we'd never thought of (like avocados on whole wheat bread-- yum) and the things with potatoes are really cool. Well designed, useful, and what kid isn't curious about food?

grea new book! Oct. 10 2008
By J. Harquail - Published on
Format: Hardcover-spiral
I heard about this darling book on the radio and went right out and bought it for my kids. It has everything a beginning cook needs to get started in the kitchen; simple healthy beverages (as well as homemade chocolate sauce for chocolate milk), classic meals, lots of simple veggies, and great quick breads, cakes, and cookies. It even has a "how to measure" and "terms for cooking " in the front section and tips for having a green kitchen. The pictures are vintage and the recipes are clear and simple to read. My kids love being able to make their own snacks. Great idea and great value.

Wonderful gift for a child you love Nov. 4 2008
By C. Ullman - Published on
Format: Hardcover-spiral Verified Purchase
I bought this book as a gift for my 11 year-old daughter. She was initially skeptical, being more inclined to want electronic gadgets, but was quickly captivated and excited by the gift. It is an extraordinarily beautiful book, somehow combining old-fashioned imagery with a modern visual intensity. Once you pick it up and start looking at it, it is hard to put it down. As a cookbook, it is perfect for beginners. The book is spiral bound and lies open on the table while you cook, and the pages are sturdy enough for a young chef's hands. The recipes are simple, appealing, varied, and often nutritious. There is a section at the beginning that explains common cooking terms and techniques in simple language. There is a section at the back where your child can collect additional recipes for her or his collection. The book includes a table of measurement conversions (how many teaspoons in a tablespoon and the like), and another that offers substitutions for various ingredients. In short, everything you need! I highly recommend this cookbook for children from toddlers to early teens, and think that you will enjoy it as much as your child will. My daughter is resolved to make very single recipe in the book (except the peanut butter cookies), and I look forward to helping her with the project. This book explains cooking so clearly, however, that she may not need my help at all!

best cookbook EVER! March 17 2011
By J. Andrews - Published on
Format: Hardcover-spiral Verified Purchase
Not only do my kids love everything we've tried from this book, but, I find myself referring to it more often than my basic Betty Crocker cookbook! I have several "kids" cookbooks, but this one, by far, is the best! The recipes have a classic, old-fashioned feel, are easy to prepare, and all are things my kids would actually eat! You won't be disappointed with this book!
