Teach 'Em While They're Young!

My good friend and fellow writer, Christina Dymock has created something remarkable.
Okay, yes, there are other children's cook books out there.
But none of them are like this one . . .

Families! Start your ovens!
Or toasters . . . or can openers . . . or waffle irons . . . or blenders . . . or microwaves . . .
Finally a cook book that clearly explains the how, when, where, and why of cooking and baking to the smallest and most inexperienced of cooks, the children. With little tips, pictures and notes of interest to captivate short attention spans. And even a section on each recipe that explains just what adult supervision may be necessary.
From the first page explaining clearly and simply the techniques and processes used in today’s cooking, through the first recipe for super yummy Pink Smoothies and right up to the final recipe for Little Twinkie Trifle these recipes are fun.
Cute.
Sweet.
Simple.
Astoundingly (real word) detailed.
And so complete that I (even I), would be able to use this book to learn how to cook. Something that has been despaired of since the dawn of time . . .
Am I buying a copy of this book for each of my children for the use of their children?
You bet I am!
Am I keeping a copy for myself?
Ditto!
Oh, the gastronomical (another real word) adventures that await!

About the Author:
Christina Dymock was once at a dinner party where her husband was teasing her about the frosting-to-cupcake ratio on her dessert. The woman sitting across from them sniffed her delicate nose and said, "If my husband gave me a hard time about my frosting I'd quit baking. That'd show him." To which Christina's husband replied while pointing at his speechless wife, "Try to stop her!"
Christina divides her time between the kitchen and her computer and books and her family of six. (Naturally, the family gets the biggest share.) Because she reads everything, she also feels compelled to write in several genres.

  1. How cool! Off to check it out because I suck at cooking. Plus? The name Little Twinkie Trifle has me quite curious.
    Thanks!

  2. Sounds good - the earlier kids get comfortable in the kitchen, the better, in my opinion!

  3. I can see how such a book would be useful.
    My kids learned to cook by helping me in the kitchen, they learned to wash the dishes too, (I have photos...)My grandchildren learned to cook the same way. But I know many children who don't know their sink from their stove. Not literally of course, but you know what I mean.

  4. They look fun. And maybe it will teach me how to cook. Doubtful. :)
