Honey, order us a pizza, because the kids and I are too busy cookin' on the Nintendo DS to make dinner tonight.
Cooking Mama is cracking us up. After we burned down a few Sims houses because we 'accidently' forgot to let them learn how to cook, this might be our Karmic reward. The Nintendo DS stylus acts as a cooking utensil, as you slice, chop, grate and stir your way to glory. Recipes start from simple to complex, and it even lets you go head to head with another player in a cooking challenge.
There are some very funny elements within the game. For example, to
cool food down you blow into the Nintendo DS microphone. Some kids love to cook, and can't wait to get into the kitchen and make stuff, but if you have a reluctant cook in your household, this might be a way to make cooking seem a little cooler.
Players earn bronze, silver and gold medals from Cooking Mama, depending on their prowess. But don't burn your dinner! Just $19.99.
