“I love this book because it’s so easy to use and recipes are really fun. I’ve already made like five things from it but I want to make A LOT more. I’ll probably make everything from the Sweet chapter.”
— Jo Saltz’s daughter, Everett, Age 8
"Wow this looks good, I want to make all of these! The recipes I most want to try are the FamousChocolate Chip Cookies, the Mango Lassi Smoothie Bowl, the Perfect Pizza (but not the green leaves) and Captain’s Cookie Cake because it looks cool! Everything looks so good I want to eat the book!"
—Jonah, Age 5
"Yes! I want my mom to make a lot of this. For the Waffle Iron Grilled Cheese I would fill the holes with tomato soup. I think I can make the Edible Cookie Dough by myself so I could eat it all by myself! And the Sugar Cookie Truffles look too good to leave out for Santa.”
—Milo, Age 9
"The Leprechaun Shake looks way yummier than the green smoothies my mom makes, and I can tell the Perfect Pizza is good because of the blobs of cheese."
—Elliot, Age 7
"SOUR. PATCH. GRAPES. ‘Mom, we just need some sugar and we're gonna make this today.’ (Sigh) I wanna make allll of it."
—Viola, Age 8
"FRUITY PEBBLES! The Fruity Pebbles French Toast with whipped cream looks so delicious. I need to make it for my birthday. We need to get all the ingredients for the Banana Split Oatmeal someday cause we need to make that! Oh and Chocolate Chip Muffins ... yesyesyesyes!"
—Lillian, Age 5
"The recipes are really easy to follow. I wouldn’t have thought of some of these on my own.”
—Jack, Age 11
“The cover is very fun and it draws you in. I love the chapter titles made with foods. I like the beginner to pro scale – it’s super helpful and it makes it very fun. My first impression of the recipes is that they’re awesome! I love the non-over complicated instruction format. It’s super easy for kids to quickly understand. I like the history segments because I like learning random facts. Peanut butter pancakes? OMG!!! English Muffin Pizzas – oh my gosh! Cinnamon Sugar Chips?! YUM! These recipes are so clever. Edible Cookie Dough?! OMG!!! Mason Jar Ice Cream sounds amazing – I’ve always wanted to make ice cream but it’s never been easy enough. The recipes are super clever and enticing."
