School Library Journal Reviews
Gr 3–6— These attractive books emphasize creativity. Each one begins with spreads that show necessary equipment, describe basic cooking terms, and illustrate ingredients. Substitutions are encouraged, and an "Allergy Alert" is included. The pages are as appetizing as the recipes themselves, with many clear photos and colors; the information is well organized and accessible. Meals has recipes for raspberry smoothies, fruit salad, scrambled eggs, baked ham and eggs, cranberry scones, and more. Pizza discusses both using a pan and a pizza stone and gives directions for making a crust and a variety of toppings. Sweets includes directions for dips, no-bake energy bars, frozen fruit pops, apple crisp, chocolate-dipped treats, etc. These titles deserve shelf space in any collection.—Lynda Ritterman, Atco Elementary School, NJ
