Embark on a baking adventure with Mimi where she will measure, mix, and bake her way to the perfect batch of gingerbread men. If Mimi can do it, so can you!
Mimi's Adventures in Baking Gingerbread Men is the third book in the Mimis Adventures in Baking series.
MY REVIEW: I was honored for the opportunity to read and review the first book in this series, Mimi's Adventures in Baking Chocolate Chip Cookies, and I was lucky enough to be presented with the opportunity again for this one, the third book in the series. I absolutely LOVED this book. It's a little longer than the first, which makes it great as a book to read to your children, or to have your first or second grader read themselves!! My children loved it. The illustrations are so cute and fun and it definitely put us in the Christmas mood. This time I didn't try to bake the cookies with the kids as we read, not only because gingerbread takes longer because of the decorating, but because I discovered last time that multitasking in this instance is not my friend. lol! I absolutely am going to use the author's recipe though and bought molasses yesterday so my kids and I can try it out this weekend! Mimi's Adventures is a wonderful book! I love the concept, the illustrations, and the recipe and the fact that this is a book that I truly enjoyed reading with my kids. I highly recommend it.
5 of 5 stars!

Chef Alyssa has been baking since she was a little girl in her grandmother's kitchen. Since graduating from the Culinary Institute of America she has worked for famous chefs and elite companies such as the Ritz Carlton, Tom Colicchio, Norman Van Aken and Gray Kunz. She currently is the Executive Chef at Riverwalk Bar and Grill on the Historic nook of New York City, Roosevelt Island. She also has a boutique custom cake company called AllyCakesNYC where she creates cakes to appease the imagination. Through her journey of baking she developed Mimi, her very own miniature version of herself.
As a child she loved baking and everything that came with it. As an adult and food lover she realized there was something missing when she frequented bookstores. A interactive children's cookbook. And we are not talking about a boring old cookbook for kids with lots and lots of recipes, and some pictures. Children these days have just as much interest in the kitchen as there parents do, but the ordinary cookbook is just not going to cut it. She created Mimi's Adventures in Baking to give children and adults a way to get into the kitchen and allow the child to become the chef and the adult the assistant. With each book has one recipe and an interactive storyline the child can read, and at the end go into the kitchen and do what Mimi did! And for the "non-baking" parent, these elite pastry chef recipes are tested and ready for even the most inexperienced baker! Impress other moms with Mimi's creations!
Mimi's Adventures in Baking will also teach children how to measure, mix and bake their way through the kitchen while also giving safety tips along the way. No more boring cookbooks! Now there is a fun, exciting and educational way to learn how to bake!
