Please use this post for discussion about the Gosselins that doesn't have a better spot elsewhere.

Why does she have to bake so much? It does seem manic. And if they are for the freezer, why didn't she just freeze the dough?

---------

If you bake rolled dough cookies and use a round cookie cutter, they will come out perfectly circular. Think Christmas cookies. Roll the dough, use star, tree, bell cutters and that's the shape the cookies will be.

jennines said...

Where are you seeing the photos of the cookies?

Zoey said...

I saw Maddies supposed photography....am I the only one skeptical that she in fact edited those on her own? I think kate is trying to pull one over on everyone again

Zoey said...

Also I see the Hoffman book is back!

Linda said...

Where can the Hoffman book be seen or ordered??
School starting soon, wonder if the kids going locally or once again, privately?
Would do them good to run with the

Chips Ahoy cookies are much thinner than those. The cookies Kate allegedly baked are thicker and larger.

Zoey said...

I do not think kate edited those pictures. But I don't buy that Maddies did either.

Zoey said...

Regardless of if kate baked those chips ahoy cookies or not, more importantly WHY oh WHY does she need almost 700 baked goods? I'm not following here. ... Help me understand the reason

Xanadu said...

===========

She bakes that many cookies for school lunches, and defrosts them as needed throughout the school year. Frozen cookies stay fresh for about six months.

Regarding Robert's book. There is nothing on his blog about it, and no place on Kindle to order it, other than the first chapter that you can read for free.

Mady has shown an interest in photography in the past, and Kate published some of her photos on her site. She's very good at photography, so I have no doubt that she did take those photos.

Minerva said...

I feel for the kids when they get to the last of the bunch of cookies. It wouldn't kill her to bake and freeze in smaller batches for better freshness. With her sitting at home all day, she could bake cookies weekly with no problem.

Zoey said...

Ok I should change my stance...I suspect mady did take and possibly edit most of the photos but I'm calling BS on the tiger.
The one with the fairy in the tup kids hand, that clearly is the ability of her age group....the black and white with red heart, yep that too speaks to her age but the tiger...nope doubtful.

The kids eat cookies at school everyday?. We here in Massachusetts have a ban on junk food and aren't allowed to pack that sort of stuff.

Eye Of The Tiger said...

88888888

If you go to Photoshop, the tiger picture is one of the most used, with step by step instructions how to do it. Mady certainly could have done it, based on those instructions.

The kids go to a private school. They can have whatever they want in their lunchbox. I would assume Kate doesn't load their lunches with junk food. One small cookie as dessert shouldn't be a problem. In fact, desserts, such as muffins, donuts and cookies are sold in the cafeteria.

I agree. My niece is Mady's age, and loves taking and editing both photos and videos. The photo's are similar in complexity to what my niece does, and I have not doubt mady did them either. Did I mention my niece also taught me how to use Windows 8?

I was watching an old episode and saw Uncle Kevin and Aunt Jodi's kids and I wondered, "Where are they now?"

From what I can see on one of the kids' Twitter accounts, the family seems to be doing well. I always wonder if they ever keep in contact with at least with Jon and the kids because they seemed close before. Its nice to see them in candid pics as a normal family; they look so fun to hang out with.

Here's a Vine with them I thought was cute: https://vine.co/v/blX3vU1YE2a

Debbie H said...

"The latest iteration of her cookbook isn't doing well. How not surprising."

I think it's very telling...but it won't be long before someone on here will remind you that's ONLY for pre-orders...AS IF all of a sudden it's going to make the "New York Best Sellers" list(as Kate calls it)the day it comes out...

PA Woman said...

Cookbooks are not big money makers. People get their recipies free online these days. Unless it is something trendy like a new diet or celebrity chef you aren't going to get a lot of sales. The best selling cookbook of 2013, Barefoot Contessa Foolproof, has only sold a little over 100,000 copies. A cook book is not a big revenue idea from Kate.

Had Enough said...

Kate is urging her 167,770 fans to pre-order her book, Love Is In the Mix. Her cookbook has fallen in the Amazon listing. Could this have something to do with the lawsuit that Kate filed against Jon? But, Kate has a back up plan. She is returning to online couponing.

Heffner Road said...

how much money can she make from coupons? how does it work?

DebbieH said...

Kate needs an ADDITIONAL back up plan to her "couponing"...it's called a REAL JOB...lol..Wonder how much longer it's going to take her to realize that? She really can't make the nurse excuse anymore...that she can't "afford" babysitters for all those 12 hour shift 7 days long week...lol(everyone that knows a nurse KNOWS it doesn't work like that to start with)...The twins are old enough to babysit 10 year olds now and they are getting older by the day...And I'm sure Jon will be more than happy to make arrangements with her to keep the kids as needed so she can MAKE A LIVING...Does she not have ANY family support to help along? Guess she truly has alienated every single relative the children have..What a shame for them..AND 99.9% of Americans HAVE to work a job other than a TV SHOW to support their families...Why does Kate think she is better than the rest of us?? I think she would rather file bankruptcy than be seen working for a living...I will never get that...ever...

sglily said...

I think she just makes some money from the coupon site, like her Kate + My 8 blog of sponsors, affiliates, etc. (though I'm not really sure how that all pans out.) It's really sad she's still using the kids to make money, which the NoNetz blow-up was the proof in the pudding. How can she possibly be credible on a "couponing" site anyway when she just bought herself another new car? I'm guessing she fired up the "Ask Kate" part of her site so she could answer any food and meal related questions to plug the book (which she did ad nauseam, and admitted it in one of her responses!) It's not selling because people are beyond tired of her, they don't want to encourage her pilfering ways, and we all already know the recipes & traditions because they've been in the show. Even I figured out the hummus recipe (basic hummus people!), not to mention recipes of public domain where maybe a spice or two was changed up to make it "hers"...who cares? No one. Again, the proof is in the pudding.

jennine s said...

Nurses DON"T work 12 hour shifts 7 days a week. It is more like three 12 hour shifts a week. Plenty of at home time, and with the kids in school, she would only need help a few hours a day 3 times a week. She could have dinner in the crock pot and the kids are old enough to make their own lunches, That is how many nurses I know work it.

Had Enough said...

Bottom line...Kate just DOESN'T want to work at a REAL job. She doesn't want someone telling her what to do. I am sure that no one would want to hire her anyways. Kate would be a distraction no matter where she worked. Also, R.N.'s do make good money, but not as much as Kate is used to making. We will never, ever, see Kate going back to work as a nurse. She just wants the money handed to her for doing nothing.

My life's goal was to be a mom. So, I became a registered nurse in order to be able to provide for my future kids. Boy, oh, boy, and lots of girls -- were my prayers ever answered! By the age of 29, I was a mom to eight (count them!) healthy beautiful kids.
Since then life has gone in all sorts of crazy directions, including a hit reality show on TLC that ran for six seasons, three New York Times best-selling books, and single mom-hood!
Since having kids, my goal in life is to be the best mom I can possibly be ... and to simply and successfully survive each day!

Sipping on: Coffee with fat free creamer ... and LOTS of it!

Debbie H said...

Had Enough...I'm with you that Kate doesn't want to work..She got spoiled at the money from doing nothing but letting cameras film her and she got addicted to the fame and what came with it(free stuff, etc)...But it's OVER and she is going to have a long long time(in fact the REST of her life) to be only a mortal human being...If she doesn't have loads of money saved up(and she claims she's "broke"), she's either going to have to get a REGULAR mortal job to pay to support her 8 kids or she's going to have a very miserable existence and have to turn to welfare and food stamps and go that route...OOPS...I should be quiet as I'm probably giving her ideas about how to live on somebody elses dime...LOL

Had Enough said...

Let's all remember that "Kate's" first book was written by Beth Carson. Kate's new cookbook has basic recipes that anyone could Google and make. Why waste money buying a book that no one needs. I can guarantee everyone, that we will NOT be seeing Kate's book, Love Is In the Mix, on the "NY Times Bestselling List".

A tidbit from Robert Hoffman's book is that Kate had an "alleged" abortion. Does anyone know if that was after she had the 8 kids, or before. Maybe she got pregnant by Steve, her bodyguard. Also, that Kate used "black market" fertility drugs to have the sextuplets. And Kate's real reason for taking Jon to court is to promote her cookbook. No one with a brain is going to by her cookbook. Recipes in her cookbook are stolen from other sources. I sure do hope that Robert Hoffman's book is released again and becomes a best seller.

Betty said...

Supposedly Kate had an abortion before she met Jon. She got pregnant with one of her boyfriends during nursing school. It kind of puts the lie to her story that she always thought she'd have fertility problems.

Hannah said...

I thought Robert passed a lie detector saying he didn't get them from Jon,


I also don't think the "texts" were form him, anyone could of sent them from his phone.


I don't think he had anything to with this.

sglily said...

Not only that, but I read something that said Jon had said about alleging hacking, that it didn't make sense as they would have still been married and there wasn't a computer of "her's", but community property. This whole thing is really ridiculous and the fact Kate feels the need to continue focusing on it is proof to me she has a desperate need to keep her name in the news (whatever that news may be.) It's common that public figures will have biographies (or whatever you want to call it) written about them whether authorized or unauthorized...she obviously seems so intent because IMO all that stuff written was in fact TRUE. Honestly, as far as the kids are concerned, this can be dealt with without showcasing their Dad in a lawsuit. What about the hundreds of tabloid covers, stories, articles, etc. that were put out during the worst of it...the kids have already been through enough, why do they now have to go through Mom suing Dad, etc. I can't imagine how awkward visitation must be now. So much for "peace for the kids"...

Debbie H said...

I heard that Robert passed lie detector as well...This is all purely Kate stirring up attention once again anyway she can do it...It will pass, Robert will win and she will look EVEN worse than she already does...There is NO rehabilitating this woman or her image...

I was reading the table of contents of Love Is In the Mix, and they are basic recipes that we could find on any chef's website. Why in the world would someone waste their hard earned money to buy a book from Kate? In one of the pictures of the kids, there is a sign on the wall. I can't read it all, but I do see that part of it says "hug often".

Go to Novelrank and check. It shows Amazon's pre-orders. Barnes and Noble would most likely be about the same, if not just a bit less. You can also see how many were pre-ordered in Canada and the UK since the book was available for pre-sale.

I bet the ET, Katie, Today show interviews will be a way for her to be asked about legal issues between her and Jon that are in the news. She will give a pitiful speech about how she is "getting by" but it is too hard to get a regular job with 8 kids (although they are practically old enough to watch themselves part of the time!) Not to mention, she could get a less expensive place closer to their school, if she had to. And I agree that the cookbook is pretty useless, and from what I have seen, you can find better recipes on the internet. So this may well be her "last hurrah" on the tv show circuit. I am kind of surprised she is getting any airtime for the cookbook in and of itself. It must be for them to try and get the dirt on the lawsuit.

Barefoot Contessa Foolproof is the top-selling cookbook so far for 2013. It ranks 1,027 on Amazon. If you want to make $$$, you don't do it writing a cookbook. Unless, of course it leads to other things (your own cooking show, etc.)

Heffner Road said...

as you stated, she could save money by getting a less costly home. also sending the kids to public school.....she is paying the taxes, so why not, if you are strapped for cash...

she has a $600,000+ mortgage and the accessed value is a little over $400,000... so in my opinion she is in the tank.

Jon Gosselin Hits the Tables … as a Waiter?!

Jon Gosselin (Getty Images)
Oh, what a difference a hit reality show followed by a public cheating scandal followed by a few years out of the limelight makes! Just ask Jon Gosselin.

Years after the former "Jon & Kate Plus 8" star definitively ended his family's run on TLC and became tangled in a nasty divorce, he is back in the workforce. But he's not a star anymore; now, he's a waiter.

Asked by "Entertainment Tonight" if it was difficult to find work these days, Jon said it's "next to nearly impossible," which is probably why the ex-reality star (whose show once garnered a whopping 10 million viewers) is perfectly content with his post at the Black Dog, a local restaurant not far from the cabin in the Pennsylvania wilderness where he currently resides.

Although he admits he had a bit of trepidation about how the job would turn out, he talked himself into it. "At first I was nervous because I was like, 'How are people going to react?'" he confessed. "But then I'm thinking, 'Well, it's fun and I get to talk to people.' And they technically already know me … they're like 'Are you the guy?' I'm like, 'Yeah, I'm the guy.'"

In other words, yes, the guy formerly hitting up VIP pool parties in Las Vegas and being chased by the paparazzi is now the guy delivering your onion rings. And you know what? He's okay with that.

"I don't regret anything. You learn from your mistakes. That's what builds you to who you are today," he mused.

But just who is he now? He's a 36-year-old father of eight who lives in a cabin with no TV, no Internet, and no regrets. "I've hit rock bottom like 20 times and I just bounce back and go somewhere else," he quips. "I [party] now on a different level."

You can say that again.

Queen of Hearts said...

Just saw this Yahoo article/ET clip about Jon. The best part is that in reading through a few pages of comments I see ALL positive for Jon and many non-positive for Kate.

GETTING BETTER...SCROLL DOWN









Jon Gosselin is trying to throw cold water on the fiery legal battle he’s in with his ex-wife Kate Gosselin and is asking a judge to throw out the multi-million dollar lawsuit she filed against him by dragging his children into the fight.

In court documents obtained by RadarOnline.com filed in Pennsylvania, Jon’s attorney argues that Kate’s claims that Jon accessed her online banking, cell phone and email accounts without her authorization are false.

DOCUMENTS: Read The Multi-Million Dollar Lawsuit With Ex-Wife Kate

Jon provided a lengthy description of how the information from her hard drive could have wound up in the trash that is the basis for the lawsuit where Kate alleges Robert Hoffman conspired with her ex-husband to illegally tap and access her bank accounts and computer without her authorization.

“After Kate filed for divorce, Jonathan moved out of the family home and into an apartment above the garage of the family home,” he explains, and says that he left the family computer in the house for the children to use and that he backed up all of the information on discs that he left behind when he finally moved out of that apartment.

PHOTOS: The Costliest Celebrity Divorces

He then claims that his own eight children told him how the hard drives were disposed of.

“The children told Jonathan that Kate (and a friend of hers) threw away in the trash everything left behind in the apartment,” the documents claim.

“Jonathan has not wrongfully access any computer, online accounts, or telephone belonging to Kate—it is far more plausible that Kate herself threw out the DVDs in the trash.”

The documents also claim that Kate has no real proof that Jon and Robert “hacked” into her accounts or obtained the information from the trash, as she asserts.

PHOTOS: Dumped, Deceived & Devastated: 50 Stars Betrayed By Their Men

“Perhaps most telling of all, however, is the allegation “Hoffman falsely claimed in certain publications that he recovered the data from Kate’s computer by digging through her trash that he found on the street. . . . The materials in his possession could not possibly be physically found in paper format to that extent. If Hoffman was picking through trash on the street, he did not find this trove of personal information while engaging in his trash-picking endeavors.

“This is not a factual allegation. This is rationalization. This is conjecture. This is speculation—as to why it had to be hacking—because how else could it have happened, right? Or, is there a more plausible alternative explanation?”

Jon’s motion to dismiss the lawsuit claims that Kate is not presenting facts, but that her “claims are pure speculation, a fishing expedition, and should be treated as such.”



Liz said...

Why is it that every Gosselin article about Kate is about the awesome things she's doing, her new show or product, etc.

Every Jon article is about how he's down and out.

Makes you wonder where the leads on these articles are coming from, and to not underestimate the power of having a PR team

And no one has ever been able to explain why it is that a legally married couple could make millions during their marriage and one could keep the house, cars, and seemingly the bulk of the $$$/assets.

sglily said...

It's her against him...always. She wants to keep "looking good" like she's got things going on and continues to be on the up & up (after all, she has the kids right?)...and he wants people to see he's not like her, rather just a normal guy living simply and back to the basics. Why? Because she wants to hang on to fame fighting tooth and nail til the bitter end, and honestly, he could care less.
Some might argue he too is continuing to seek out fame, but I don't think so. I won't agree with any part or try to justify his behavior during the divorce, that which was all flat out selfish, ridiculous and mostly just hurtful to the kids. But, at this point, I'm for Team Jon all the way, and really do hope this is the final straw that will put an end to Kate thinking she can continue to seek and acquire fame. I really believe the cookbook, "NoNetz" blow-up, and the lawsuit are clear signs of the "end times"...the people will have spoken.

Shi said...

While that ET interview clip with Jon came off really sensationalist (He Lives in a cabin! No TV! No internet! Serving onion rings!!! ...no wonder I hate these kind of shows), glad he's at least working a job he enjoys and is living the way he wants. He seems grounded.

Unfortunate that its "next to nearly impossible" for Jon to find work, but a lot of us can relate. Respect.

Jon allegedly shoots gun warning at Paparazzo? A female photographer was stalking him. Jon sure has had his share of crazy women in his life.

Rusty Shackleford said...

While I'm okay with law-abiding citizens carrying guns for self-protection, I think Jon may have climbed the "use of force" ladder unnecessarily in this situation. If the paparazzo was brandishing a weapon and Jon felt his life or his children's lives were in actual danger, then it would be understandable. But a warning shot for a person snapping photos? Perhaps we're not getting the whole story.

Is firing a warning shot legal? Maybe only on private property, if someone is trespassing, with or without a weapon?

Dose anyone know what the price of here cook book is if you pre-order it?

Had Enough said...

On Amazon the hard cover book is $13.77, Kindle is $9.99. The price of the book keeps going down. I don't think that it's going to be a best seller.

Had Enough said...

Kate talks about one of her recipes, Cara's Sausage and Bean Bake. She says that this recipe came to her out of nowhere while she was on a long flight to Los Angeles. She says that it was a rare moment that she wasn't thinking about cooking, or anything at all. It just hit her. She rushed home and raced into the kitchen to assemble it. Cara helped by adding some additional touches, and that is how the recipe got it's name I guess. All because Cara added the additional touches? Shouldn't it be called "Kate's Sausage and Bean Bake" because Kate came up with the recipe, not Cara?

Had Enough said...

In Kate's new book, Love Is In The Mix, Kate makes comments before the recipes. The comments that she makes are so fake and phony, just like her. One of her recipes, Macaroni and Cheese, Tuna and Peas, is made from store bought macaroni and cheese mix in a box. Then you add frozen peas, and tuna. Please don't tell me that people are actually going to buy this cookbook. And if they do, they are going to be very disappointed.

Shi said...

I hate to use this word, but it fits her so perfectly... Kate's a tryhard.

I actually want to read this cookbook to see for myself how terrible it is.

PA Woman said...

my guess anyone buying the book is for pictures of the kids, not the recipes

Had Enough said...

You can go to Amazon.com, and look Kate's cookbook up and "look inside" of it. There you will see some comments and a few recipes. There is also an index so that you can see all of the recipes in her book. All of her recipes can be found online, without wasting your money, to buy the book. It's not like Kate created the recipes in her cookbook all by herself. She most likely added an "extra" ingredient to make it seem like it was her own recipe. The cookbook is fake and phony, just like Kate

Millie said...

She's even claiming the flag cake recipe.

Had Enough said...

In Kate's book, Love Is In the Mix, she thanks Cara for going through the book and catching grammar and sentence structure issues. I, however, did find some errors. Kate claims that it was the kids that asked her to write the book. You can read this all under acknowledgments in her book. The more that I read this book on Amazon, the trashier it gets.

I think Kate is scheduled to appear on Katie Couric's show this coming Wednesday. She just keeps on keeping on.

I' m ready, Mr. DeMille said...

Kate was on the Today Show (Monday A.M.) and was interviewed by Savanna Guthrie.
It's a shame that she still can't talk and answer questions and cannot finish what she set out to say. She "hemmed and hawed" constantly BUT she provided a video of the kids at the dinner table. She is still using the kids to try to make people like her. Pathetic effort..should have stayed home.

I' m ready, Mr. DeMille said...

I forgot to add to previous post that she did the cookbook FOR THE KIDS as the have asked her for the "recipes" so that someday they could make these foods for their own kids. YAWNnnn!

About 50 people showed up to her Staten Island book signing. I remember the show when she hid in a storage closet because not enough people showed up for a book signing - Steve had to calm the crying Kate down.

Here is a link to an article about the signing. I'm so embarrassed for the newly married couple profiled in the article yet it says so much about who Kate's fans are.

On E.T. last night, it was reported that Kates contract with TLC is ending soon, and she still wants to get back into television. I didn't realize that she is still under contract. I believe the cookbook and the suit against her childrens father is a publicity stunt.

Had Enough said...

About 50 people showed up for Kate's book signing? That's not a good sign. what happened to all of her fans? I think that Kate needs to wake up and smell the coffee.

Had Enough said...

Kate is on the Katie Curic show. She doesn't look good. The color of her skin looks like crap. She continues to say: an um, and um, and um. Katie takes a visit to Kate's house and they all cook pizza together. Kate's hair was hanging all over the pizza that they were making. So I am sure that the kids ate some hair too. Mady and Cara did not look happy at all. During the interview with Katie, Kate just seemed so fake and phony.

Protect8 said...

"On E.T. last night, it was reported that Kates contract with TLC is ending soon, and she still wants to get back into television."

This explains why she keeps popping up on The Today Show, etc.. Networks have their affiliations. Same as why the equally awful Kardashian mother shows up on The Today Show.

It was kind of funny to see how happy and cheery Katie Couric was in contrast to Kate and the kids. I expected a bunch of the kids to jump ship and hide in Katie Couric's limo as it departed the "Mine - all mine!" estate.

I don't think that kate cares how many books are sold. She just wants to get back in the news.

Had Enough said...

So there are already "used" books for sale on amazon and Barnes and Noble. One of the comments in a review of the book said that it be nice if Kate wrote a book about organization. Seriously I think that Kate will write a book about anything and everything, just to keep from getting a real job. Her next book will probably be about the proper way to change a diaper. I think that it was very out of line for Katie Curic to ask Kate yesterday, what her opinion was regarding Jon firing the shot. That should never had been part of the interview.

Judy said...

Jon was on The View today. I was very happy to see him; in the past, The View has only had Kate on. He comes off 1,000 times more credible and comfortable than Kate.

PA Woman said...

I actually don't have a problem with Kate writing books. It is a "noble profession", and I consider writing to be "real work". Also, the quality of her work will be reflected in the sales. I don't have a problem with that either.

DOES ANYONE HAVE BARNES AND NOBELS FIGURES?

sglily said...

Katie Couric appearance: Kate also looks like she had a double dose of Botox to her forehead it was so taught & shiny with no lines or movement. She was obviously dressed for the cameras at the house in that halter mini-dress. Even Katie showed up in jeans and a tee shirt. Of course, she wrote the cookbook for "her kids" (same reason she wrote all her books right?), talking about the girls wanting her recipes so they could cook them for when they were moms. Why must they always bring up dating? Kate does want a mate I bet, but for assigning him duties and she go off to travel around begging for media appearances. Katie needed to ask more Twitter questions, like she confronted Kate with tipping off the paps on her shopping trip to Target. Kate looked annoyed with that question, and looked like she was lying when she said she had never done that.

sglily said...

Kate did appear really organized in the first specials/season, but it was nothing ground breaking and honestly looked more like OCD rather than someone who truly had a love for and gift of organization. I doubt any of us want to organize her way if it means going through pads of Post-its and packs of index cards by the case. Not to mention, she had a whole show where professional organizers came over to help HER because she was so self-proclaimed disorganized and a mess. She was shocked to see a basic label maker you can buy at Walmart. After seeing that, it baffles me that people are still asking her to write a book on organization.

Had Enough said...

Kate reminds me of a Barbie doll. Whatever she is doing with her face, makes it look plastic. Katie Curic did look like she was having fun playing with the kids. Kate was more like a bump on a log. Perhaps it because of the way she was dressed. She most likely didn't want to expose one of her breasts on national television. It sure did look like Mady and Cara were not very happy. They weren't smiling. I did also notice the kids hitting each other. Hmm, I wonder who they learned that from.

Had Enough said...

I see that there is also another book written about the Gosselin's titled: Jon & Kate Plus Eight: Reality TV & The Selling of the Gosselin's. It got 14, 5 stars, and 25 customer reviews. Some of the reviews are very interesting.

jennine s said...

Her book, Love is in the mix, received some very, very negative reviews on Amazon.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Eight Not-So-Little Faces 24. September 2013
Von Nonesuch - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene AusgabeMy mom used to love the Gosselin show, so I took a look at this in the store yesterday. If you've skimmed through any of Kate Gosselin's other books, you'll find a bunch of already-published recipes repeated here. And if you've never, EVER cooked anything before in your life, you might find a recipe like Jamie Broccoli--which is comprised of broccoli, melted butter, garlic salt, and water--somewhat useful. But the book would have benefited from a more honest title, maybe "Eight Bigger Faces (and the Stuff I Feed Them)," because this is far less a cookbook than a picture album of the Gosselin kids interspersed with precious anecdotes and "tips" that have been published before and are here recycled (for money!) yet again. I imagine there'll be a sequel in a couple of years, "Eight Teenage Faces (and How I Organize Them)."

1.0 von 5 Sternen Nothing very original 24. September 2013
Von dough_a_deer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene AusgabeVery disappointed. Most of the recipes use canned products high in sodium. There's nothing new or different here and a few recipes look as if they came off the back of a can or package with maybe an ingredient changed. One recipe I thought I'd try had different ingredients than in the photo. Quite confusing. Overall, it feels like not much thought went into this especially since there are no directions for making the recipes smaller. Most are for 8-10. The food photos are nice.

1.0 von 5 Sternen This forced me to enter a star 25. September 2013
Von Lyric - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Editionbut the book does not deserve even one star. All she does is open cans and dump the contents.

Not only that, but her measurements are off. Who puts more than a cup of lemon juice in a hummus recipe?

The photos accompanying the recipes do NOT match. Photos show ingredients not included in the recipes.

One review said the photography was "wonderful"? Okay, explain what that green thing is growing out of that one child's head on the cover? What horrible photography.

This is a very weak, amateur try at a cookbook. I would not recommend.

I now understand why this ridiculous cookbook put a disclaimer at the start! I've never seen such a thing.

No. Katie Couric went to Kate's house and filmed snippets that were featured on her show when Kate was interviewed.

Kate's fans sure are delusional. One of the comments on Amazon states that "everything Kate does, turns to gold". Now we all know that the person that said that is living in a dream world. A lot of the reviews from fans state that they like the pictures of the kids. So, why didn't Kate just do a photo book instead of a cookbook, if that is what her fans want?

A photo book, or a holiday DVD. Even good cook books don't have big sale numbers. She would have been better off taking a different direction.
