Boba Fett-Uccine and Princess Leia Danish Dos are just the beginning when the Force is with you in the kitchen. Wookiee Cookies is your invitation to fine culinary experiences in the Star Wars frame of mind. From C-3PO Pancakes to Jedi Juice Bars, this intergalactic Star Wars cookbook features healthy snacks, delicious dishes, sweet treats, and easy main courses no Rebel can resist. With hilarious photos and safety tips for cooking on Earth as well as in most space stations, Wookiee Cookies even includes a sheet of shiny Star Wars stickers. Age is no issue when it comes to Star Wars cuisine-kids as well as adults will have a great time with this book. Whether you drove to your first Star Wars flick or just had your fifth birthday, there's no reason you can't whip up some Crazy Cantina Chili at near light speed.
Basic recipes a simple basic cookbook already has. Other than the pictures of Star Wars character toys standing on or next to the food, there is little that is original here. Example: Tuscan Raider Taters is simply mashed potatoes made from boiled potatoes, milk, butter, salt, pepper. The only unique suggestion is that if you want the mashed potatoes to be light brown in color as shown in the photo with the toy figure, you can add 2 T of soy sauce. The recipe goes into laborious detail about how to cut a raw potato into 1 in cubes to boil it (instead of just letting the kids leave the potato whole and avoiding the knife work), and then calls for the kids to drain the boiled potatoes in a colander in the sink. It does give a warning about steam burns but doesn't suggest that this step should be done by an adult. Also, the suggestion about adding 2 T of soy sauce to the pound of potatoes in the recipe to make them brown doesn't include leaving off the teaspoon of salt in the recipe, and only adding more salt "to taste.". The "Burrito" recipe is the same.... same old burritos you might make in your family already. Nothing that makes them uniquely Star Warsian.

This was a fun purchase for a husband who has an obsession with Star Wars. Some of the recipes make you wonder, like the French toast that called for loads of milk. The brother-in-law tried making this recipe, and came out with soggy beyond all reason.

Just be forewarned, the ideas are cute but be sure you test the recipes before making these for a dinner party or game night.

I ordered this for a Christmas gift, based on the great reviews. This not really for adults. The book is not
geared toward an adult. It is for kids. Just want to make that clear. The forward for the book contains warnings
like "Be careful around a hot stove" and so on. The recipes are super basic and a kid would love it as a first cookbook,
but as a 'novelty cookbook' for a star wars fan/cook's kitchen, it won't do much good. Had to send it back Cute design, good for kids.

Star Wars fans will love this cook book filled with recipes that incorporate various SW names into the recipe name. The book features some really nice photography using action figures and the recipes, very entertaining for the fans. But the other really nice thing about this cook book is the recipes are actually very good. It's not just a novelty cook book as the recipes are well thought out and very delicious. The wookie cookies are my favorite - enjoy!!

My daughter (9 year old) found this cook book at Disneyland and wanted to get it there but it was significantly cheaper on Amazon and since she was using her own hard earned allowance, she agreed to waiting until we got home from our trip. When I give it 5 stars, I do that in the understanding that this book is for a child. If you are looking to recreate dishes you saw in the movies, this is NOT for you. It had fairly simple recepies and lots of puns (like Hans- burgers). If you have some star wars fans and jr chefs in your house, it's perfect.

This cookbook has simple recipes with fun names and cute pictures. I bought this as a way to entice my kids to cook once a week. They love this cookbook the most out of the ones that I bought. The recipes are simple, kid friendly. They have fun names and great pictures, everything a kid wants in a cookbook. We've made the TIE fighter ties (basically pigs in a blanket), Han-burgers (burgers), and R2-D2 Treats (a dessert concoction involving frozen bananas, kit kats, and white chocolate, that didn't work as well as I'd hoped), and the Wampa snow cones (granita of sorts, that came out pretty well).

Easy recipes. I don't cook but these are simple and can be done with kids. I enjoy the recipes and bought a second copy for my sister and her kids (and they have made several of the recipes). The chili is basic but good and filling, as is the Hoth chocolate, Skywalker smoothies, Stormtrooper sandies, Hans burgers, Dark Side salsa. The diversity in recipes is also noted - breakfast, lunch, dinner, beverages, snacks. Simple, easy, fun, delicious recipes for even the most basic of cooks and I enjoy it greatly. The photos are also well done and worth the smile. Definitely glad I purchased. Shipped quickly and protectively.

I got this for my daughter’s friend for her birthday. She loves Star Wars and she’s 7. The simple recipes are great for a budding chef to make with her Nana. Since it was a gift, I don’t know how good the recipes are, but they seem like your basic kid friendly foods. The book itself is a nice quality - spiral bound so pages lay flat and laminated pages so it’s easy to keep clean. I do wish each recipe had a photo of the actual food (some recipes only had photos of action figures). The one thing I hated, though, was the photography. I don’t know if the photographer thought they were being artistic or if they truly don’t know how depth of field works in photography. Either way, I find the blurriness of the photos distracting (though I’m sure the 7 year old recipient of this gift probably won’t even notice).

bought as gift for 12 year old who seemed very pleased with the idea of cooking up these unusual recipes!

Really poor. We could have come up with better recipes ourselves. The best thing was the sticker in the back saying, "Use the fork, Luke!"
I think you'd have more fun coming up with your own Star Wars names for your own recipes.
