Transform how kids think about their favorite foods.

Ever wondered how ketchup is made? How do you bake the most awesome (fish-shaped!) cheese crackers? Can you really make homemade butter in 10 minutes? The third title in this bestselling series of complete cookbooks for the emerging chef goes back to basics to show kids how to make many of today's store-bought staples from scratch. Easy recipes ranging from pancake mix to homemade Sriracha sauce will make kids kitchen heroes, one DIY project at a time.


Creative yet attainable recipes will empower kids to rock the kitchen—and have fun doing it. Recipes explain the hows and whys of cooking and offer suggestions for ways that kids can experiment and truly make recipes their own.


How does cream become butter? What exactly is an emulsion (and why should you care)? Why does American cheese melt so well? Kids will learn how a little science translates into great food.


Recipes range from trendy (make your own sprinkles and bagel chips) and classic (ice cream sandwiches and granola) to dead simple (peanut butter and pickle chips) and giftable (chocolate bark, anyone?).

Some of the recipes you'll find inside:


This recipe takes everything we love about this condiment and gets there with fresh tomatoes and traditional flavorings such as vinegar, garlic, brown sugar, and allspice.

Cheddar Fish Crackers

These homemade DIY goldfish crackers are just as fun to eat as the ones you buy from the grocery store! A food processor helps this dough come together before kids cut out the fish shapes.

Pop Tarts

These homemade Pop Tarts are so much better than the store-bought kind! They’re filled with strawberry jam and can be finished with a simple icing.

Pancake Mix

Whip up a big batch of this make-ahead mix and kids will be minutes away from fluffy pancakes, any time they want them!
