Illustrated Step-by-Step Baking Cookbook for Kids and Teens by Skye Wade
Published June 25th 2021
Genres: Cook Book
Format: E-book ARC
We created this book for children, but we recommend it for adults as well. It’s for those who don’t like to read boring bricks of text but prefer to get right down to business, learning skills as they go.
You won’t find a book easier to use than this one. Not only does it have illustrated recipes for delicious dishes with concise, detailed descriptions, but it also has important information about the basics of baking that we’ve simplified and illustrated.
Easy to make. Recipes are broken down into 3 categories of difficulty, but even the most difficult ones are manageable for a child. Most recipes require 3 to 10 ingredients and don’t require gourmet ingredients. Chances are you already have everything you need, or you can find it at the nearest supermarket, regardless of the country you live in. In addition, there are substitution options for many of the ingredients. Most recipes require only the most basic cooking utensils. And even for those, there are substitution options: no microwave — make a water bath; no mixer — use a whisk.* Received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

For you guys to have an idea of how it looks like:
Doesn’t it make it look A LOT easier for kids? I would have loved something like this when I was about 11-14 when every book seemed so far from my reach. Especially when recipes don’t have photos, I’m still not a fan! Cookbooks should always have pictures accompanying each recipe, right?
The book is all with color and images. It’s simple, appealing, and a lot of fun.
It comes with an index of what each image means, level of difficulty, safety rules, how to measure things, and more.
As for the recipes it has quite many cookies and bars, cakes, cupcakes, muffins, pastries, bread, savory/salty snacks, and how to do some ingredients that you might need if you don’t have.
I loved the cat drawings and I can’t wait to try out some of the recipes!
