On a Stick 80 Party Perfect Recipes by Matt Armandariz

We were sent a free review copy of On a Stick because many of the recipes are perfect for kids parties and snacks, alongside the adult dinner party appetisers. I have to admit I liked the look of the photography, so was keen to see more. There is nothing like a nice photograph of food […]

Top That! Publishing plc, an independent children’s publishing company with an international reputation for producing exciting books that challenge and stimulate young minds from 0–11+, we were sent a couple of titles to have a look at.

Good Food, Fast is a brilliant cookery book for the likes of me. Lets face it, I do try and cook stuff, but ultimately I can’t really find the will power with Fifi hanging off my leg. This cook book promises to provide recipes for ‘tasty meals in 30 minute or less’ and to be […]
