Kitchen Fun with Your Kids, Using 35 Cooking Gadgets for Simple Recipes, Crafts, Games, and Experiments

By Pam Abrams

GadgetCV_200pxGetting kids involved in the kitchen at an early age is a great, hands-on way to introduce them to new foods and teach them valuable skills. Gadgetology makes it fun—kids and parents alike will love this activity book, chock-full of experiments, recipes, and games using 35 kitchen gadgets. Parents will appreciate spending quality time with their children, broadening their kitchen horizons at an early age. Children will love using “grown-up” gadgets—from an apple peeler to a whisk—to play games, try simple recipes, make crafts, and conduct fun experiments. A box grater is certainly handy for shredding mozzarella to make Super Easy Lasagna, but it’s also great for shredding crayons onto wax paper to be ironed into “stained glass.”  Leftover walnut shells cracked with a nutcracker for Fudgy Walnut Brownies turn into perfect sailboats.  In Gadgetology, Pam Abrams offers so many creative, fun, and safe uses for everyday gadgets that the kitchen will become an educational playground.


“Pam Abrams understands the importance of family time, and her ingenious new book, Gadgetology, is nothing less than inspirational. More than just a cookbook, this cleverly organized volume is a combination of crafts, activities, and yummy recipes, all aimed at introducing kids to a variety of foods and kitchen gadgets. Imagine an afternoon of family fun yielding a delicious dinner, snack, or dessert — it doesn’t get much better than that! Kids and parents alike will love Pam’s encouraging tone and easy-to-follow instructions. So, corral your kids and head into the kitchen with Gadgetology!”
