This volume is not just a cookbook but a family fun guide that delivers a great time in the kitchen; it’s sure to bring families closer together. The recipes detail all steps, from prep to cleanup, along with dozens of activities. Key lessons include seasoning, knife skills, and kitchen safety. The colorful and easy-to-read recipes are categorized as breads, breakfasts, meats, side dishes, main dishes, or desserts. Cheney includes nondairy alternatives for a few recipes, but the text could benefit from being more inclusive of children with dietary issues, a common reason for fussiness.
