Apples For Jam

Apples For Jam

Cooking is not one of my most favourite hobbies but this book does make it easier. Tessa's recipes are delightfully entangled with memories of the energy and excitement of her own childhood and hopes for her daughters. These are recipes that have been passed from friend to friend, through the generations of many families and swapped over garden fences. This joyful and eclectic collection is put together with the grace and honesty of a daisy chain. 400 pages, oozing glorious colour and excitement with evocative text and innovative recipes are complemented by beautiful photographs and illustrations.

But you have to open it to see just HOW cute. Oh. My. God. I've seen a lot of these all-in-one sets and this? By far one of the best ever. First of all, the author's credentials set it apart. Mia Bauer is the lady behind the incredibly successful chain of Crumbs bakeshops- those of you lucky enough to live in L.A., New York or Jersey may be familiar with her delicious creations.... like the FlutterNutter Cupcake- vanilla spongecake with marshmallow buttercream filling, frosted with vanilla buttercream that's mixed with real peanut butter and THEN drizzled with white chocolate and edged with white sprinkles Um... yeah. YUM. So I was so excited to find this kit for kids in a local bookstore. Mia has created an adorable character named Lolly LaCrumb and written a book detailing her many wild adventures. Even better, the book comes complete with wipeable recipe cards that provide easy-to-follow instructions, stencils for decorating (hold the character-inspired designs over your cupcake and sprinkle your topping of choice), kid-friendly measuring tools... oh and so much more. I just can't say enough about it so I'll stop before I try to. Perfect birthday or holiday gift for the little girl in your life- or for yourself. Really, the cover doesn't do it justice. SO much cuter in person!

This book is filled with fun ideas for parties with your friends and kids in the kitchen! Say goodbye to the hot dogs and chips that typically reside at family and friend gatherings, and say hello to cooking parties with age-appropriate activities for kids and parents alike. "With ten themed playdates, 70 delicious recipes, handy menus and activities, this cookbook offers “Kids in the Kitchen” notes with age appropriate tasks for each recipe (try painting with spices or stuffing pizza “snakes”), plus craft ideas for both kids and adults." Sounds like a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon to me!

Photographic guidance for growing garden vegetables in containers, followed by recipes using what has been grown, like carrot and orange muffins. Some of the writing has an even more self-consciously dumbed-down air than that in most how-to books for children. But the instructional photo sequences get down to business sensibly enough, and the whole visual experience implicitly suggests the connection between freshness and flavor.

The recipes are split equally between instructions for adults and numbered-step words-and-pictures summaries for children. Mollie has a good sense of small children’s powers and limitations, and sensibly recommends planning cooking sessions “for in-between times” when no one is hungry enough to get cranky.
