      This book is the reason I am obsessed with cooking today! As a kid I would spend hours pouring over the recipies, mezmerized by the pictures. I would beg my mom to let me cook all the cool things I would see, like the "Juciy Hamburgers" with the smiley faces on them or my fave "Ghost Cake with flaming eyes". By todays standards this book may come off as cheesey to some, but the everlasting memories it help build are beyond priceless. My mom recently found a copy at a yard sale and gave it to me [...]

      Oh, my God, this reproduction cookbook is a trip down memory lane, and not always in a good way. I admit the cover drawing is charming, but delve inside this 1957 time-capsule (intended for boys and girls, mind you) and you'll find:Some recipes that involve "Big G" products that no longer exist, like "Sugar Jets" cereal.Some recipes that are just plain wack, such as the mock chocolate shake that involves a chocolate sauce made with the help of Betty Crocker Chocolate Fudge Frosting Mix (also obs [...]

      Happy, happy memories of cooking when I was growing up.

      This cookbook is extremely fun. Lots of colorful, cute cartoon illustrations show children very simple recipes they can make to enjoy at home. I have made most of the recipes in here while growing up as a kid, and when I got older and moved out of my parents home, I had to buy my own copy because I was using my mothers originally! It has a lot of cute, vintage party ideas that you can do as an adult, and I love the way to dress up cereal bowls with fun characters!If you don't know how to cook, t [...]

      I am in no way wanting to endorse this as a cookbook. Many of the recipes appear unappetizing and use Bisquick as an ingredient to maddening amounts. Steer clear of the "Candle Salad" recipe which consists of half a banana set upright with a pineapple ring around the base and a maraschino cherry on top.well, let's just say there is an illustrated picture in case you are wondering about that.Short quotes from the boy and girl taste testers are included to make your cooking experience more pleasur [...]

      It's a facisimile of the original 1951 cookbook. Got it when I got a proper oven. Love the cute little illustrations of the 12 boys and girls who tried out all of the recipes. It's interesting how in those days, food photography was not an art yet. The photos are not delicious or glamourous. Everythng looks very high fat and the recipes use lots of butter, buttermilk, sugar, and eggs. But I liked the chocolate fudge cake. It turned out pretty nice.It was quite innovative for its time because it [...]

      This is a great book. A friend of my mother's got it for me when I was 4-5 years old & I STILL have it, almost 50 years later. One reviewer gave it 2 stars & said she couldn't endorse it as a cookbook. Well, what would you call it? It is a cookbook & is quite cheesy by today's standards but back before every Tom , Dick & Harry became a foodie it was perfectly fine for the young, learning cook. It still is. I'm not going to give my kids a Martha Stewart or Julia Child publication [...]

      I liked some of it. Kids cookbooks are never perfect due to weird food or cutesy food but, this had several decent recipes. I liked that the kids made comments/critiques of the recipes, it was neat. If I had to buy this again I would search for a hardback version. I don't like the spiral binding. it looks like it was done at home & not by pros. I think the comb they used was too small. Still, it was cheep. I got the matching kids microwave one from Betty too. In AZ you just need real microwa [...]

      Heed my warning, for it is a sad fact: A book bought at a library "discard" sale & a mother's willingness to let her only daughter "experiment" willy-nilly in the kitchen leads down a dangerous path, my friends! I am a hopeless foodie & cookbook collector. There. I said it. And THIS, people, started it all! I blame THIS! To-this-day, 40 yrs. later, I'm still using the Mac & Cheese recipe! OMG, I even bought a reprint on ! The book was originally published in 1957. Someone needs to fi [...]

      I got this book from my grandparents when I was nine years old, so it has nostalgic value, but I probably only have made one or two recipes from it in all the years that I've had it. The recipes are much too difficult for the average boy or girl. And really, the only thing truly "fun" about the recipes is that sometimes you arrange the garnish to form a smiley face or a dog or something. There are much better cookbooks out there for kids now.

    • Kitchengrrl says:

      Probably like many children, this was one of the first cookbooks I read, and it taught me some of the basics of cooking. I read my Aunt's ancient copy from the 50s when I was a child in the 80s and it's tatty pages are still on my shelf all these years later waiting for new little hands. Many of the recipes are not anything people nowadays would actually want to eat, but the photos and quotes from kids are great for vintage nostalgia.

    • Monica Willyard says:

      My brother and I grew up using recipes from this cookbook, baking things with our mom. I was so excited to see it in an updated print version. Our version is old and faded, with little flecks of flour and sugar on the pages. We grew up in the 70s, and I still make many of those recipes that I learned to make back then. I'm going to get a copy of this book for my daughter so she can share it's recipes with my grandsons.

    • Robert says:

      This is another cookbook my mother used in my youth. Interestingly, the inside cover has my sister's name on it. There are hand-written notes from my mother slipped in here.Obviously, this is a keeper.

    • Jennifer says:

      my first cookbook ever! this is a vintage classic and the simple illustrations are cute. I don't know if I ever "made" anything from this and the recipes are quite dated, but it's a keeper for the nostalgia quotient.

    • Kat says:

      My grandmother bought me this cookbook when I was a child. I still use its trusty recipe for Macaroni & Cheese, which has been the basis of many cooking experiments- it's also how I learned to make a roux.

    • Amy says:

      This was my mother in law's cookbook. It's stuffed with her notes and papers.Packing away now as we declutter the house, preparing to put it on the market.

    • Abraham Ray says:

      great collection of recipes for children!

    • Sharon says:

      Well used & loved by my children

    • Mike Evans says:

      Read with grandmother as a teen

    • Christina says:

      Grown-up sloppy joes.

    • Pam says:

      I'm not sure if this is the cookbook I had in the early 1970'sbut it looks close. Some of the foods to make are downright freaky.

    • Mckinley says:

      Fun. Great illustrations - a blast from the past.

    • Dana says:

      This is the cookbook I learned to cook from and I just found a reprint. It's so dated yet very sweet!

    • Joanne Thomson says:

      my first cookbook. I still have it, with notes I made on the various recipes. I loved this book. It still makes me happy to look through it.

    • Jennifer Choisser says:

      This was my Mom's first cookbook purchased for her by my Grandmother, and the first cookbook I was ever introdued to.

    • Meltha says:

      Cute, simple, and dang the chocolate cake is good.

    • Cate says:

      Oh man! What memories. I still make French Toast the way I learned from this book.

    • Jodi says:

      This cookbook has been in the family for who knows how long.
