Step-by-step instructions for key steps (along with Bella's personal comments about the recipes), inventive variations, and colorful photography complete the book.

So roll up your sleeves, get a little flour on your hands, and warm your stomach with a treat while sharing a smile. Baking Kids Love is baking that both kids and adults will love.

    Excellent resource for kids learning to bake!

    Baking Kids Love has delicious recipes, beautiful photos and lots of tips for helping familiarize children with baking. The author's daughter, Bella, tried out all of the recipes herself to show that children can make them and she also offers interesting tips to the young bakers throughout the book.

    The start of Baking Kids Love walks you through all of the basics for beginning bakers including common ingredients, how to prep them, correct methods for kneading and rolling out dough and more helpful hints.

    There are chapters for Cookies, Pies, Tarts, and Fruit Desserts, Quick Breads, Cakes and Yeast Breads. The authors clearly worked hard to find recipes that would appeal to children and would motivate them to learn how to make the baked goods themselves. Cinnamon Streusel Coffeecake Muffins, Blueberry Swirl Cobbler, Strawberry Shortcake and Pizza are a few of the kid-friendly recipes in Baking Kids Love.

    I really liked how the cookbook gave lots of alternates, so the recipes can be catered to what you have on hand or to your taste. For instance, the Chocolate Chunk Bread Pudding has several scrumptious variations like adding or substituting banana, cherry or cinnamon flavors. There are recipes for everyday like the Perfect Peanut Butter Cookies to the Swirly Milk Chocolate and Caramel Cheesecake for a fancy dessert. Baking Kids Love is beautifully designed and an excellent resource for children wanting to learn how to bake.

    KIDS WILL LOVE THIS BOOK, AND YOU WILL TOO !

    This book is a prime idea if there ever was one! Well remembered are the days when my Mom brought me into the kitchen intent upon my learning the basics of food preparation. Regrettably, little of it took - perhaps because I was assigned to peeling, paring, chopping detail.

    With this bright, fun cookbook young ones take an active part in the total preparation of 30 kid-friendly, tempting recipes. They'll prepare cookies, pies, tarts, fruit desserts, quick bread, cakes, and yeast breads. Now, these aren't just ordinary cookies or cakes. But some cookies are so colorful and shapely you almost hesitate to bite into them. Budding artists may decorate them with sprinkles, sugar pearls, large crystal sugar, dragees plus candies if they wish. Cakes and cupcakes are presented with equal flair - decked out in swirls of frosting, even with cherries on top!

    Especially helpful is an opening "Notes To Adults" - my favorite reminder here is "It's food, not world peace. Memories are made and lessons are learned even when disaster strikes." Kids will enjoy and connect with the comments from Cindy Mushet's 11-year-old daughter, Bella, such as "My favorite part about making cookies is eating them warm." or "I like decorating cakes because I can swipe a taste of frosting when no one is looking."

    Both practical and palate-pleasing Baking Kids Love is spiral bound for easy reading when cooking, recipes are step-by-step numbered, and the book is printed on sturdy paper that sponged off easily when I mislaid a few drops!

    Enjoy!

    - Gail Cooke
