The Berenstain Bears’ Country Cookbook {Book Review}


The Berenstain Bears Country Cookbook is a must have for fans of the series. This book is full of delicious recipes not just children but for everyone in the family. I’ll have to admit that I am not sure who was more excited about this cookbook. I grew up having my mom read the Berenstain Bears books to me and I’ve been doing the same with my own kids many years later. My children love helping me out in the kitchen so I’m quite glad I’m able to add this kid-friendly cookbook for them to pick and choose recipes to prepare and enjoy.

This cookbook is a wonderful choice for making memories together in the kitchen. There’s often something about cooking and baking together that sticks with you. I believe because so many senses are awakened in this act such as creating with ones hands, tasting the food, smelling it , and fellowshipping with one another that the experience is not soon forgotten.

There are 40 recipes in this book. The sections are Breakfast, Lunch, Main Dishes, and Dessert & Snacks. Aside from the recipes there’s a page all about grace before meals and a Bible verse which talks about doing everything for the glory of God. There’s a handy kitchen measurement section included that covers a pinch, tablespoon, teaspoon, cups, quarts, pints, and gallon.

The recipes are very kid friendly. Each features a full-color photo that have made my children excited to cook a few things that I never expected they would try! Instructions on what ingredients are needed and what steps to follow are very easy to understand. A few of the recipes include tips as well as how much will be yielded from what’s made.

My kids told me they love this cookbook because it features characters they love! My daughter said the colors are great and my son said all the pictures make everything look tasty. I couldn’t agree more. A few recipes we love are the Apple Sauce, Chicken Quesadillas, Sub Sandwich, Mini Pizzas, Fruit Salad, and Bear-y Good Oatmeal We are quite eager to try many of the other recipes soon! We highly recommend this cookbook!
