Product Description:

Wow, how weird is it when you AND your mother learn to cook out of the same "classic" kid's cooking book and then they republish it, in all its original trimmings? I remember Mom pulling this out when I was younger and excited to learn how to cook "all by myself." And yes, the book looks hauntingly familiar and decidedly retro, with its two-toned illustrations of perky-looking girls in their frocks with aprons and the boys with their hair all slicked back or neatly combed. Of course, all the 245+ recipes are the same too, running the gamut from cakes and other "party" recipes to breakfasts, lunches, dinners, "campfire" cooking, and more. Lists of helps and tips are also included, such as cakemaking tips, cooking "rules", lists of how to measure common ingredients, pictures of common cooking utensils, definitions of cooking terms, and of course, important kitchen manners. Each recipe is simple and kid-friendly (even today!) with necessary ingredients listed in separate boxes, step-by-step directions linked to the ingredients they use, and serving directions. Full-color photos are included of some of the recipes, and a helpful index is found at the back. The whole book is, like the original, spiral-bound in a hardcover jacket, built to stand up to years of kitchen abuse. Destined to be a kitchen "classic" for your home as well. - Jess

I remember this cookbook growing up - I now have granddaughters who are learning to cook and I am going to give this to them as a gift.

I have had Betty Crocker cookbooks for over 60 years. Wanted to start my grandchild off right.

At age 10 my mother left and I had to learn how to cook for my father and younger siblings ages 8 & 4. I learned from this book. I am now 70 and I have been thinking about this cookbook and want it for rememberance. Thank you for re-publishing it.

Is this in large print?
Peggy C on Dec 13, 2020
BEST ANSWER: No, the print is not particularly large - however there is a good amount of white space. The 4th thumbnail shows a sample recipe page.
what year is the cookbook and what is the condition? Sheila from De.
A shopper on Dec 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The cookbook is a new printing. It does not have the nostalgia feel in your hands. That fact is noticeable in the type of paper selected, it feels new and bit more photocopied than printed. Today's kids don't notice its "new" feel.
The entire content, type print, graphics and photographs are exactly as originally printed in 1957. Nothing of the content is changed. For example there is a camping chapter that references mixing in a coffee can and making a new dessert "smores". While that is a bit out dated for today's kids, it is really a good starter cookbook for kids.
It is written directly to boys and girls with the boys and girls test cooks interviewed and commenting throughout the book. The recipes use a lot of Bisquick and canned food but will give them a sense of ownership.
