The idea beyond this box is fantastic! We got this box as a Christmas gift for my 11 year old to learn the skills of baking and get comfortable in the kitchen. This box nailed it for us in those area. She loved the apron and made a great binder with her recipes, however we found the recipes for us personally fell short. We were always left feeling like many of the recipes were missing something or had a bit too much of something. Overall the box is great, but some personal tweaking of the recipes may be needed.
