Overview


It’s time for some family fun with creative crafts and out-of-this-world meals, and you might even learn something, too! Take the whole gang on a trip through the imagination with food and activities for all ages, any old Friday night.

This cookbook offers up 20 different dinners and over 100 recipes to make dinnertime fun again! Have a meal under the sea, in the park, on the moon, or back in time; there are jobs for kids and adults, and every meal includes appetizers, main courses, side dishes, and a fun dessert. Take your teddy bears on a picnic in the back yard, talk like pirates, or be pop stars with stylin’ shades. Each menu is completely customizable; you can begin preparation the night before, or you can add in shortcuts that work for your family. Crafts, games, and sometimes, special dinner get-ups round out a night of giggling to kick off the weekend.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Busy cooks with a houseful of hungry kids will appreciate this selection of 20 themed dinners from author Berman's (Little Black Book of Coffee, Little Black Book of Hors d'Oeuvres), emphasizing fun and family togetherness. Each menu-with titles like Silly Hat Night, Home on the Range, Under the Sea-consists of a handful of complementary dishes (Chuck Wagon Chicken Fried Steak, Chicken A La King in a Pastry Crown) that lean heavily toward kid-friendly favorites. Still, there's enough variety to keep things interesting and challenge adventurous eaters: roe or caviar dressing for a salad on Dress-Up Night, or a Vegsicle Salad, in which lettuce and frozen mixed vegetables are served with a vinaigrette. Parents will appreciate the crafts that accompany each menu-including antique treasure maps, magic wands and homemade placemats-to keep little hands busy while the adults focus on dinner. Most dishes are to-the-point and fairly easy to replicate, though a few, such as Berman's elaborate Castle Cupcakes and Under the Sea Shadowboxes may take a more time. Still, this is a fun and imaginative collection parents and kids should enjoy together.
