Fresh Fiction Review

OMG Pancakes!

This is by far the quickest and easiest review I have ever done. I couldn't resist getting an early glimpse of this book about pancakes. Pancakes are just about my granddaughter's favorite food so how could I not be interested in a book completely dedicated to the art of making them.

First and foremost this is going to be an excellent holiday gift for any new parent or grandparent. What a wonderful way to spend a weekend morning making these creative pancakes and then enjoying them with your kids or grandkids. We've all done the cupcakes and cookies - now it's time to move on and with Jim Belosic's directions and illustrations everyone will be able to join in. Thank goodness he gives all the little hints and tips he has discovered along the way which will streamline all the novice pancake makers among us. And his system of using squeeze bottles to outline and then fill in each design is so simple and yet ingenious. I can't help wondering after creating several of the lookalike foods - for example meatballs and spaghetti or even salad - if the kids will more readily eat the real thing. And I also have a couple of favorites in the animal department like the puppy and duck with ducklings in her tow. This is a cornucopia of delightful pancakes to look at, a real page turner -- the plating is just magical -- and definitely invites you to dig in and enjoy. There is something for every kid.

Belosic says in the preface that his young daughter was the inspiration for many of the creations but the inclusion of sports, dinosaurs, and aliens ensures that boys would get a blast from this as well. Never too young to develop the inner chef in all of us and I look forward to developing confidence to try some of the 3-D pancakes too. Time with our children, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews is precious and special and this book will become the centerpiece for spending creative and yummy time with all of them.
