I expected simple to follow recipes - not the case. Also limited number of pictures - not a picture for each dish.
My daughter was excited to buy this book and try her hand at cooking for her school project. The first two which were a peanut butter cookie and a chocolate sauce were great. The second two were completely wrong and untested. I knew that the buttermilk pancake recipe was not going to work based on the ratio of measurements (2.5 cups of buttermilk to 1 cup of flour) but we tried it as her school project required this. They were inedible. The second was a butterscotch sauce. It turned out tasting good but was the recipe described would happen. The butter and brown sugar were supposed to turn bubbly and syrupy and instead was as dense as wet sand. We completed the recipe and it still came out tasty, but it was not as described.
So far my daughter (6 years old) and I have tried 5 recipes. While I thought they tasted good, my daughter didn't care for any of them. I think the recipes might be a little too grown up for a child's palate.
