It was a plastic set of utensils, dishes, and bowls that all had multiple uses. For instance, one was a bowl that you could flip over and it would become a taco holder. It also came with recipe cards and a cook book. The jingle was "Now you're cooking, it's for you. It's better than mom's and it's more fun too."

I loved Now you're cooking! I was telling my fiancee about the cook taco holders. I would love to purchase this kit for my neice.

I had all of the sets. My parents have been on a hunt to find them in our attic. They actually worked pretty well, so it would be fun to have them in my apartment-- I'm sure all of us in grad school would have so much fun playing with them. I remember thinking I was so posh making fondant...and the ice cream set was so awesome. The spoon had a hole in it and was also a straw. And the rolling pin had different "sleeves" that would cut out different shapes.

I LOVED this too! I made a candy with wheat germ in it from the cookbook. I'd love to have the book, I'd buy the whole thing if I could find the book. This is the ONLY site I can find any information about it. My mom doesn't really remember and I looked for the cookbook in all of her books without success! If you have one or any ideas of where to find it online. PLEASE COMMENT!!

I just found 2 Now you're cooking sets. I've been trying to looki them up to find out a good selling price. No luck. Does anyone have a clue? I have the fondue set, and the taco set.

Wow! What a blast from the past. I remember these and the jingle. Everyone thought I was crazy when I was trying to explain every item had a dual purpose. I had the spoon/straws and the bowl/taco holder.

I have a set that I wanted to put on Ebay, but can't really see anything to compare it to for pricing. I've got lots of pieces and they are in perfect condition!
