It’s doubtful that there is anyone out there who hasn’t seen the Christmas Classic Movie, Home Alone, at least once. One of the main tenets of the movie is that Kevin doesn’t know how to cook and must find ways to eat. The Unofficial Home Alone Cookbook: From a "Lovely" Cheese Pizza to a "Highly Nutritious" Mac and Cheese Dinner, Tasty Meals Inspired by a Holiday Classic, by Bryton Taylor, includes dozens of recipes that could have been important to Kevin and that he would have eaten. The book includes comments, vignettes, and helpful information at the beginning of each recipe which make the book fun to read cover to cover, even for those who don’t want to cook or bake. As the reading goes on, it will bring back memories of the movie, and inspire everyone to watch it again.
The recipes are written in the traditional manner with a list of ingredients followed by step-by-step instructions that are easy for anyone to understand. Most of the recipes contain standard ingredients that are readily available and many are even on most pantry shelves, freezers, or even the fridges of most homes. There are enough appealing recipes that kids as well as adults will find several things they want to cook.
Although there are several beautiful, professional photographs included, there isn’t a photograph of every recipe, which is the only drawback to this cookbook. However there are enough photos that the cookbook is still a recommended, fun cokbook to have on the shelf. Most would-be cooks will find they are kept busy with a long queue of fun dishes to make.
