    In her introduction to “Kid Chef Bakes, The Kids Cookbook For Aspiring Bakers“, author Lisa Huff explains the goal of this book. With it, she hopes you will be able to learn more about the Kitchen Tools and Appliances you will need for baking. You will also master baking skills like Measuring, Mixing, and so on, and discover a world of Sweet and Savory Baking Recipes. After that very brief introduction, the book is then divided into two basic parts. Part One is “Welcome To Baking School“ and Part In her introduction to “Kid Chef Bakes, The Kids Cookbook For Aspiring Bakers“, author Lisa Huff explains the goal of this book. With it, she hopes you will be able to learn more about the Kitchen Tools and Appliances you will need for baking. You will also master baking skills like Measuring, Mixing, and so on, and discover a world of Sweet and Savory Baking Recipes. After that very brief introduction, the book is then divided into two basic parts. Part One is “Welcome To Baking School“ and Part Two is all Recipes. The first section in part one is “In The Baker’s Kitchen“. Here kitchen rules are explained along with details about what is included in a “Baker’s Pantry”, complete with a list of “Seasonal Ingredients”. “Baking Equipment”, such as “Cookware and Bakeware” and “Other Tools and Utensils”, is also described. Another section covers “Knives and Other Sharp Tools”. This includes a description of various “Cutting Styles”, “How To Use A Knife”, and the all-important “Knife Safety”. “Using A Stove” and “Using An Oven” are explained followed by a “Baker’s Dozen Tips”. Chapter 2 covers “Baking Skills”. Starting with “Lesson One“ the basics like measuring liquids and dried ingredients are covered, also butter, when to use and at what temperature, and greasing pans. The lesson ends with a recipe tutorial for “Very Berry Granola Bars“ which uses your newly acquired skills. “Lesson Two“ starts with “Cracking And Separating Eggs”. This is a not to be ignored skill which everyone must master, and covers everything from the temperature of the egg to the best techniques on how to separate eggs. The lesson ends with a recipe tutorial for “Little Meringue Clouds“. “Lesson Three” covers “Mixing And Folding”. It describes the various types of mixing, like beating, creaming, folding, etc. as well as mixing wet and dry ingredients separately. Lesson Four ends with a recipe tutorial for “Cinnamon Buttermilk Muffins”. With “Lesson Four”, you will learn “Creaming Butter And Sugar”. This is an important step for anybody who wants to make cookies. This lesson also includes information on how you can tell if your baked goods are done. The recipe tutorial here is “Vanilla Cupcakes With Chocolate Fudge Frosting”. The How To Frost And Decorate details are covered after the recipe. “Lesson Five” is “Making Dough”. Starting with cutting in the butter, it goes on to include information on rolling dough and tips for baking crusts. It even includes a small section on pie fluting. Not surprisingly the recipe tutorial for Lesson Five is Pie Dough. “Lesson Six” covers “Yeast Dough”. From water temperature, through to kneading, rising and proofing, everything is covered. There is a section explaining what yeast is and how it works and another on storing baked goods. The recipe tutorial includes the first non-dessert recipe “Homemade Pizza Dough“. “Melting Chocolate” is “Lesson Seven”. Starting with how to use a double boiler, it even covers how to make your own double boiler and using bars of chocolate. A small section on microwaving chocolate is included as well. “Brownie Bites” are the recipe tutorial included. That concludes the lessons section and brings us to the recipes section. Chapter 1 of recipes covers “Muffins And Breads“. As with all of the recipes in the tutorials, they each contain Prep Time, Cook Time, Yield and a list of tools or equipment needed along with very easy to follow instructions. “Cakes And Cupcakes” are the next series of recipes, starting off with a recipe for Sprinkle Cake Pops that looks like a lot of fun. Next is “Cookies And Bars”. Some of the options here will be pretty impressive when you feed them to your friends and family. With “Pies, Tarts, And Pastries” you’ll be able to make full-size pies and even little key lime pie bites. There is even a profiterole recipe which would only take about 1/2 hour. The last set of recipes covers “Savory Baked Goods”. These are your non-dessert recipes including a Breakfast Strada, Cheese Puffs, Garlic Knots and much more. About half of the recipes include a picture, many full-page. Where applicable the recipes will be noted as nut free, and some include Tips or Substitutions To Try, as well as Helpful Hints, Pro Tips, or Troubleshooting Tips to keep you on your path. Appendix A at the back of the book is “Baking For Every Occasion“. This gives inspiration for which recipes might work best for particular occasions, like a Bake Sale, Mothers or Father’s Day etc. Appendix B includes Conversion Charts for Volume Equivalents (both liquid and dry), Oven Temperatures, and Weight Equivalents. A Glossary of terms follows, with a Resource List (complete with website addresses), and both a Recipe Index and Full Index with ingredient cross-references. Anyone Can Become A Baker I would not recommend jumping straight to the recipes and diving in. After carefully reviewing each lesson and trying the lessen tutorial recipe, anybody could learn to become a baker with this book. The lesson tutorials are well detailed, without being overwhelming. They each give you enough information without overloading. See the full review and the recipe for Thick And Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies at The RecipesNow! Reviews And Recipes Magazine. This review is written in response to a complimentary hard copy of the book provided by the publisher in hopes of an honest review.

    Kid Chef Bakes by Lisa Huff is our new favorite cookbook! We love it - we learned from it, made delicious food and enjoyed reading it. As a parent of two kids (10 and 14), it is hard to find a great cookbook that does it all: - Has recipes the kids can’t wait to try, and then are happy they did - Is laid out in a way that supports their self-sufficiency in the kitchen with clear directions including what tools will be needed - Encourages experimentation with “Things to Try” - And teaches them (ok, te Kid Chef Bakes by Lisa Huff is our new favorite cookbook!

The language is clear and easy to understand for my ten year old. The Baking School is covers a wide array of topics concisely. And the knowledge there was very empowering to my younger baker as it helped her know more than her mom (how to cream butter and sugar most effectively!). I love that it makes baking an accessible adventure / experiment without talking down to the kids. My one wish, as a parent, is to understand the nutritionals or calorie count as that is part of the kitchen education I hope to impart to them - but they can also figure it out from the ingredients The pictures and layout are bright, engaging and readable. It is a cookbook my daughter was happy to curl up with and read through like a book. And the recipes we’ve tried have come out wonderfully! Pecan Tassies, S’mores Bars and Yogurt Banana Bread. We also like the Buttermilk Chive Biscuits - They would be amazing with chili on a brisk fall day. Next up, we are looking to try a quiche. And the best part is - I get to coach from the sidelines and enjoy their hard work. Great addition to anyone’s bookshelf! Note, I received an electronic advanced reader’s copy in the hopes that I would review the book honestly. I loved it so much I purchased a paperback copy.

    I'm really impressed with this cookbook! My nine year-old was able to understand a lot of the recipes with minimal help. It boosted her confidence that she could create her own delicious dishes by following instructions, and have fun doing it! I'm really impressed with this cookbook!
