Whether it's pancakes, popovers, pasta or pizza, Cunningham delivers amiable expertise—and patience—in this neatly illustrated, user-friendly guide for young cooks (ages 7 and up). She kicks off her 15 lessons with vegetable soup and moves on to burgers and meatloaf, rice and eggs before getting to the really good stuff: chewy oatmeal cookies, gooey brownies, cupcakes and apple pie.
