Cookbooks for Kids Part 1
We have decided to work our way through some cookbooks for kids. There are really no rules, except that we will choose cookbooks written with children in mind and make at least one recipe from each cookbook. This is just for fun, and to give us an excuse to work together in the kitchen.
The first cookbook we chose is A Pirate Cookbook by Sarah L. Schuette. There are seven recipes in this cookbook and they have cool names like "Scurvy Soup," "Peg-Leg Pickles," and "Sea Swords". I love the idea of a pirate cookbook, but if I am going to purchase a cookbook, it has to have more than seven recipes. It was fun to borrow the book from the library though, and some of the recipes would be fun for a pirate themed birthday party.
C chose a recipe called "Chocolate Gunpowder". It is basically chocolate pudding, whipped cream, and crushed chocolate cookies. He loved it! R doesn't have much of a sweet tooth, so she gave her portion to C - he was thrilled!
If you have a favorite cookbook for kids, let me know in a comment.
