To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is a must have for all Nancy Drew fans for the novelty factor however it is not the best cook book on the market. As a UK user it was a faff to convert all the measurements from cups and the recipes themselves weren't the most appealing array. Sadly the book has sat unused on the shelf but it is still a nice book to look through occasionally
This book is so cute. Never received this as a kid although I collected the entire series of mystery books. Such a thrill to have this book after so many years. Can't wait to try some recipes. I have this cookbook displayed in my kitchen it makes a great nostalgic decoration.
This was a gift for my daughter’s tenth birthday. She is a huge Nancy Drew fan, and I was very pleased that the recipes are quite easy, so that she can make many of them with little to no assistance. She really enjoys making the Crumbling Wall Coffeecake (all the recipes have names themed after the series somehow), and we all enjoy eating it!
Very fun if not somewhat dated recipes (some of the ingredients I"m not sure about or don't know if they're relative). My 8 year old loves it and likes to just browse recipes and their creative titles (think mystery meets meal). A fun buy if not super practical for actually making stuff.
The authors of the Nancy Drew Cookbook have cleverly and completely captured the essence of the Nancy Drew novels, as they still existed in the early 1970s (I understand Miss Drew has been significantly updated in recent years).
Most of the recipes look as if they were designed by a dietitian for a school cafeteria, but there are a few bright spots here and there, as well as many actual good cooking and entertaining tips.
I once held an Elvis party and tried to recreate Elvis' favorite foods. This is the type of cookbook I used, one which offered essentially plain, homey food, not at all in accord with today's dietary fashions.
