Summary: This cookbook helped me to become interested in cooking. I know America's Test Kitchen does good work too. It is not perfect however as the microphone does not always seem to pick up when I say next or go backwards. Navigation at times stutters a bit due to the recipe preview essentially demonstrating how to prepare the food while leaving out key details found in the actual execution.
Summary: I like to cook and love good food. I like how this program for the Nintendo DS brings together the family to work on the meal together in a simple to follow step by step program. It has voice dialogue so you can put the DS down and listen to it without getting the system dirty. Also the program uses the microphone on the system to listen to you when your ready to go to the next step.
Summary: This DS "game" is full of good recipes but I just do not see myself or my daughter making alot of the dishes luckily there are over 300 recipes to choose from. All in all the recipes are supposed to be pulled from the America's test kitchen which I love to watch because they show some great science to the recipes.
Summary: Has a variety of different dishes to try and step by step instructions. The little dude that walks you through the steps can get annoying at times but overall not bad. Good when looking for an idea to make something for supper and have a few ingredients on hand and can put those in and it has several receipe ideas that it comes up with.
