It's kids' cooking night--and they're in charge of making dinner!

This selection of 25 easy, budget-friendly dinner recipes from the best-selling Cooking Class series teaches kids how to make tasty, healthy meals with easy-to-follow step-by-step photos. With instructions on basic cooking skills, like chopping vegetables and stir-frying, grocery shopping, and kitchen safety, Kids Cook Dinner offers aspiring chefs ages 8 to 12 everything they need to know to successfully put a healthy, homecooked meal on the table that the whole family will love. 

Our Thoughts:

Kids Cook Dinner is perfect for those apt children who love helping in the kitchen and have their minds set on making dinner ALL BY THEMSELVES!

My own Little has been helping us in the kitchen for years and is always thinking up new meals she can make for us and asking to cook alone. We've browsed so many children's cookbooks and have tried so many recipes but nearly all of them require the help of a parent.
Kids Cook Dinner not only shares twenty-five easy-to-make, budget-friendly meals, but it starts out teaching and showing kids everything they need to know about getting started, kitchen safety, food safety, how to budget for and buy groceries at the best price, how to build a nutritional meal, and more so that they can confidently create a meal for themselves or their family. 

This cookbook includes a fantastic array of recipes for delicious snacks and meals that are loved by many. Photographs paired with step-by-step instructions help kids successfully maneuver cooking on their own.
The 'Think Spring Rolls' are perfect for this time of year but our favorite from this book (and the Cooking Class series altogether) is the beef empanadas! Sooo good! 

I personally loved how much great "adulting" information there is in this book! If you want your children to grow up well-rounded and independent enough to safely cook for themselves and others, this is the perfect addition to your household library!
