" This is a cute cookbook and well set up with duties divided between mother and daughter. Visually, it's a fun cookbook to use and I like the quotes and history tucked in among the recipes. We still have lots of recipes left to try but have enjoyed it so far! " said.

"This book is not limited to mothers and daughters, but when I wrote it I had them in mind (being a new-ish mother of a daughter). Although it is directed to children, it is not just a children's book. For example, the recipes are divided into 2 roles: one that handles knives, fire and other potentially "dangerous" parts of the recipes; and the other assisting with the rest of the hands-on experience. There is a back-and-forth participation which makes the recipes good for any pair of cooks. A grandmother and child (any gender) is a good example; or an elderly mother and her daughter (son) or grandchild; or two sisters, partners, cousins... Also, the recipes are delicious and fun, but not "childish"." said.

"As a seventeen year old looking back on her past, I recall never baking with my mother. I would always sit at the kitchen table playing with my barbie dolls, while my mother added the chocolate chips to the cookie batter. I never got to help with cooking because my mom didnt know what I could handle or not, so she thought it was easier if she made it and I ate it..ate it all. I wish my mom had this book back then so she could see it's not hard to incorporate a child into cooking, and with this book it's really easy too. I could have added the chocolate chip cookies myself!" said.

"This is a wonderful cookbook to bond with your children and teaching them cooking skills as well,which will be helpful for them in the future. It is so cute, the outlining inside is pink and loaded with tips, safety tips, and alittle fun facts. It is great because it gives instructions listed as what would the mother do and what the daughter will do in sharing to make the recipe together. I want to share a fun fact with you that is in the book because it means something to me since my birthday is April 1 and also this book was published on April 1.

April Fool's Day
This goofy spring holiday, on which we play silly pranks on our friends, is actually about a change in the calendar that occurred many years ago. Ancient cultures used to celebrate New Year's during the week between March 25 and April 1. But, in 1582, the Gregorian calendar was introduced with a new New Year's: January 1. Back then, there was no Internet or TV, so it took many years for everyone to learn about and accept the change. Those who kept celebrating on April 1 would receive foolish gifts and invitions to nonexistent parties!

How awesome is that fact! The book was well written and easy to follow. Nothing like home cooking to make your home smell wonderful and give you such great memories. I would hope that Lynette will consider making a cookbook for mother's and son's.

I was given this book by Zest Books, thank you so much!

"Great idea but seems more directed at the mother. Had hoped to spark interest of daughter. Photos of completed recipes would have been helpful." said.

"Another disappointment. I ordered this for my 12 year old Granddaughter. I expected basic receipes; How to cook eggs, make soup or pancakes etc. Instead it contains silly deserts which are hardly the first items I would teach a young girl.
