Mimi's Adventures in Baking Gingerbread Men
Last February I was asked to review Mimi's Adventures in Baking Chocolate Chip Cookies, and I was honored to be contacted again to review Alyssa Gangeri's new book. 
* Please note thoughts are all my own, I was not paid to say anything. I was just given the book to review*
Alyssa Gangeri's new book Mimi's Adventures in Baking Gingerbread Men is a great book for the Christmas season.  This is a new twist with childrens books, because it actually provides the recipe. So kids can read, and cook at the same time. How cool is that? This is something that I love about her books. 
This book follows a Grandmother and her grandaughter as they make Gingerbread men. Not only is it a story but kids can actually MAKE the cookies. You do not see books like this for kids... My kids love this book...I would recommend everyone get it :-) Make it apart of your holiday tradition.  Mimi's Adventures in Baking Gingerbread Men

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!
