I'm not ashamed to say that I was so excited about this book that I ordered one for myself. The plan is to casually pull it out one day and impress the heck out of my science-loving young granddaughters. As the title suggests, it's written by science professor Dr. Kate Biberdorf, and it's loaded with 25 fun, kid-friendly recipes.
The goal is to help kids understand that all cooking is really chemistry. If you swap one ingredient for another you end up with something completely different. Each recipe includes full-color photographs, an ingredient list, and step-by-step instructions. Just for fun, there's also a "messiness factor" rating included with each recipe. The children in your life will conduct science experiments and end up with things like chocolate-covered pretzels, ice cream, and rainbow pasta.
