Kids in the kitchen don’t have to make a
mess—as long as they know what they’re doing! Teaching your children how
to cook can be daunting, especially when you don’t know where to start.
Wipe away your worries with this cookbook made specifically for kids.
Inside you’ll find tips for a variety of
cooking techniques, a glossary for common cooking terms, and a book
boiling over with recipes written for children such as Peanut Butter
Morning Cake, Bobby’s Pork Chops, Pirate Eggs, and Banana Tacos. Along
with interesting trivia and a section for needed tools, each recipe
outlines which stages require adult help, and each process is broken
down into simple, easy-to-follow steps.
Author of 101 Things to Do with Popcorn,
Christina Dymock knows the adventures kids can find in the kitchen.
Spending cooking time together can only help family relationships. So
teach your children the skills found in Young Chefs, and be amazed that
your new favorite meals came from the smallest hands.


About the Author:

Christina Dymock graduated from the University of Utah with a B.S. in
Public Relations. She has been published in Woman’s World Magazine and
several Chicken Soup for the Soul books, and she is the author of 101
Things to do With Popcorn. She resides in Central Utah with her husband
and four children. You can follow their cooking adventures at

My Thoughts:

This is a great cookbook for elementary aged children. My kids are too
young, so I didn’t try making any of the recipes with them, but each
recipe is simple, with clear, easy to understand instructions. The design of the book is visually pleasing while the layout keeps the ingredients and instructions easy to navigate. This
is the kind of cookbook I will give to my kids once they are
old enough to read and follow written instructions.

Just so you know, some of the recipes use knives or kitchen scissors and require adult help. Most of the recipes are simple enough that kids can do them without adult help, but occasionally, a slightly more complex recipe pops up.

    This looks very cool. We aren't quite there but I have lately been contemplating when Gigi decides to dominate the kitchen so this book would be so helpful. Thanks for linking it in to the Kid Lit Blog Hop

    I wish I had this cookbook when I was younger! Now is when I would like to learn how to cook but unfortunately I don't really know much. Great giveaway. If only I were a kid again… (;

      Me too! Actually, my parents did buy me a children's cookbook when I was about 10. I made every recipe in it and loved it to pieces.

    Both my kids love cooking and I have such fond memories of cooking with my Mum when I was little. We have some lovely kids cook books and this would be a great addition to our little collection 🙂 Also, a BIG thank you for linking up to Keeping it Real: A Nonfiction Reading Adventure.
