What is better than cooking? Cooking with family. Carrian Cheney has released an excellent cookbook, Raised in the Kitchen: Making Memories from Scratch One Recipe at a Time, which not only includes mouthwatering recipes, but is kid-friendly with recipes that will appeal to everyone. Children usually have positive memories of cooking with their Mom or Dad while growing up, and this cookbook has recipes that are not only delicious, but also are designed to teach children the basics so that later they can prepare recipes from other sources perfectly because they have learned the skills from their parents. The author is one half of a husband/wife team behind Oh Sweet Basil, a food and lifestyle blog where the whole family cooks.

The recipes are written in standard form so they are easy to follow. They call for simple, easy-to-obtain ingredients, and most are fairly quick to put together. There are also beautiful photographs of almost every recipe, so the cooks will know how the dishes should turn out. And turn out, they do, and the ones tried so far have turned out perfectly.

Anyone who has children will definitely want to pick up this excellent cookbook. It will be a fun thing to cook with children knowing they are learning basic cooking skills, as well as turning out delicious foods that everyone will eat. Even if there aren’t children around, the recipes are worth making; they are mostly simple – not involved and time consuming– and very appealing to almost everyone.
