Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up-An easy-to-use, attractive cookbook. The section "Get in the Kitchen!" explains using a recipe, making a grocery list, how to measure accurately, mixing, and learning the rules of the kitchen. "Are You Ready?" shows preparation techniques. Food safety and handling are also stressed. Cooking terms such as broil, boil, simmer, microwave, and bake are defined in "What's Cooking?" The recipes themselves are organized according to how the snacks and meals are eaten: "Finger-Lickin' Good," "By the Handful," "Fork It Over," and "Lovin' Every Spoonful." The directions are clearly written; sidebars explain needed equipment or give helpful comments and suggestions. Color photographs illustrate each recipe and also show relevant techniques. The snacks are visually appealing and promoted as being healthier than prepared or packaged foods.-Kathleen A.
