Awards & Reviews

“Readily available ingredients and simple instructions make this a great starting point for beginning chefs, with black-and-yellow cartoons adding a giggle. Recipes range from basics like scrambled eggs and tacos to more involved undertakings like sushi and tabbouleh. The emphasis is on healthy choices and fresh ingredients, with difficulty rated and prep and cooking times noted. Menus for entire meals are suggested, and tips on cooking safety and meal planning are included.”
