Reviewed by Emily-Jane Hills Orford for Readers' Favorite Here’s to a trip down Memory Lane! Remember those little cook stoves/ovens that every young girl wanted? I know I did and I enjoyed baking and cooking on it (under strict supervision, of course). But once the pre-packaged mixes were gone, it was difficult to replace and baking for such a small quantity is, believe it or not, a bit of a challenge. Consequently, these childhood treasures were often left relatively unused. Susan Berry Eberhardt’s Tiny Bites: Scratch Recipes for the Toy Oven helps young cooks and bakers resurrect these toy cooking/baking devices and make food that is both delicious and healthy without the inevitable additives found in the pre-packaged mixes. And there are some ingenious ways to measure the seemingly un-measurable, like measuring a tiny fraction of an egg without having to waste the rest of the egg. The author gives the reader a brief but fascinating look at the history of the toy stove/oven, beginning with, yes, a wood stove version. She outlines important safety issues as these stoves tend to get very hot and one can burn themselves easily, not to mention that they could be a fire hazard if left unattended. She outlines the major ingredients, explaining what they are, how to measure them and what alternatives can be used, such as adding baking soda to all-purpose flour when the recipe calls for self-rising flour. Then comes the recipes and there are quite a few. The instructions are easily outlined and most are accompanied by mouth watering illustrations. This book is a real treasure, a complement to the delightful children’s toy, the toy stove/oven.
