Stir, Laugh, Repeat - Review by Holli Castillo

Perfect for cooking with little ones, July 28, 2009
Review By - Holli Castillo, Author of "Gumbo Justice"

I hate to cook. I'll admit it. I don't mind baking cakes or cookies, but cooking is not my thing. My kids, however, love it. Being that they're only 7 and 10, if they want to cook, I have to do it with them. Enter Stir, Laugh, Repeat.

This cook book is simple enough that I can supervise while my kids do all the work. They have a good time, I have a good time, we all get fed something homemade. It's a win win.

We have tried over half the recipes in this book, and so far they are all easy to make and taste great. The best part is that, with a very few exceptions, most of the ingredients are normal things we have in the kitchen anyway. There is no special shopping trip or big ordeal involved. We just go to the kitchen, open the book, and start cooking.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone with children who have an interest in cooking. Not only do you get together time with the little ones and an excellent meal, the kids also develop a sense of pride and self-confidence knowing they did most of the work themselves. All that from one book is amazing!
