The Berenstain Bears' Country Cookbook Gets Kids in the Kitchen #sponsored #FCBlogger

I received a copy of The Berenstain Bears' Country Cookbook for review purposes as well as an appreciation certificate as a Family Christian blogger.  All opinions and experience with the book are 100% mine.

I have to admit, I'm not much of a cook.  My husband is the chef in the family and I'm all right with that.  Even though I don't have great skill in the kitchen, I do encourage my kids to cook with me and my husband so that they can learn and have fun while doing it. 

The Berenstain Bears Country Cookbook: Cub-friendly cooking with an Adult

We recently had the opportunity to test out a recipe from The Berenstain Bears' Country Cookbook; Cub-Friendly Cooking with an Adult.

We love the Berenstain Bears and were excited to see so many simple and kid-friendly recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert {40 in all}.  They all have cute names like Bear-y Good Mac and Cheese and Tasty Toboggans.  I browsed through all of them with my preschooler {who ooh-ed and ahhh-ed and said "yummy" when looking at the pictures, especially the desserts/snacks} and came across a recipe for Tomato & Bacon Quiche.

 Let me be up front with you reader friends.  I have never made a quiche before in my life.   Nor have I ever eaten quiche.

Crazy idea maybe? But I do like a fun challenge and the recipe looked delicious in the photo.  I figured if it didn't turn out right, there was always the option of take-out.  So we dove in and gathered all the ingredients.  {And we took advantage of the fact that her daddy was home to help}

The instructions were very easy to follow. Prep the frozen pie crust.  Cook some bacon. Crack some eggs.  Measure this.  Pour in that.    It was so much easier than I thought!  {We opted to leave the tomatoes out because I am the only one who likes them}

My 4 year old was able to do most of the tasks and they required very few appliances or gadgets.  And she loved being a little chef, holding her cookbook, and pretending to tell us all what needed to be done.

Tomato Bacon Quiche

It didn't take a lot of time to put together either.  The ingredients were done in about five minutes and the rest of the time was spent cooking the bacon, browning the pie crust before adding the mixture, and then baking.  The hardest part for little miss was waiting for 25 minutes to see how her creation turned out.

Kids in the Kitchen, kid-friendly recipes

AK was very proud of herself when we were finished!  And guess what?  It turned out delicious!  It was so delicious in fact, that my teenage son ended up eating several helpings of it and finished off the leftovers the next day.  And he's usually pretty picky about trying new foods.

Overall, we give this cookbook two thumbs up!   

The book is very organized, has appealing pictures, and even has a section explaining kitchen measurements.  I love how there are little snippets with the Berenstain Bears woven through the book as well as pictures of them spending time together as a family.  It really encourages families to cook together and makes it simple enough that even not-so-skilled moms like me can have success.

AK can't wait to try out some more recipes!
