More and more kids are in the kitchen, and they want to have fun. What to do? Turn to Betty Crocker, who makes cooking fun as well as delicious and dependable. With Betty, learning the basics was never so painless, and never so tasty. Not only do kids want fun foods such as Squeeze and Scribble Pancakes, Caramel Corn Commotion, Flying Saucer Chicken Quesadillas, Whatever Pizza and Dalmatian Cupcakes-they want to have fun reading the recipes. Every page is lavishly illustrated with characters and icons that appeal to the hip 8-12 set. Great colors and a photo of every recipe make this book jump off the shelf -- it practically boogies through the kitchen. Not only do the recipes look great -- they really work. Why? Because every recipe has been kid-tested. Say good-bye to lead-balloon cakes, cookies that only crumble, or main dishes that are mainly disappointing-any kid can tackle these recipes with confidence. In addition to the fifty terrific recipes, there are great party ideas complete with tempting treats. Try indoor camping or a spooky Halloween party-everything you'll need is right here. And, formatted in a sturdy, concealed spiral binding, this book takes it lying down-on the counter, on the table-wherever it's easiest for busy cooks. If your kids are ready to go wild in the kitchen, take Betty Crocker along! The results will be fantastic, and your kids will have a blast. Best of all, you can feel confident that the recipes will work, that your kids will enjoy themselves, and that your kitchen will still be one piece when the cooking is done!
