My Very First Cookbook
Joyful Recipes to Make Together!
by Danielle Kartes
This cookbook for little ones includes a number of appealing recipes for each meal of the day along with some beverage. sides, dessert, and snack choices. To name some of the recipes…there are apple cinnamon overnight oats, veggie fried rice, cinnamon sugar popcorn, strawberry and orange slush, sheet pan fajitas, creamy Mexican rice and berry shortcrust cobbler. The recipes are well presented and easy to follow. There are also suggestions for substitutions. The author is very encouraging to the young chefs who will be doing the cooking.
One small quibble, at the beginning of the book, the author suggests that children cook with a parent or other relative. In today’s climate with so many different kinds of families and social arrangements, I feel that it would have been preferable to suggest cooking with a trusted adult. That having been said, this playfully illustrated cookbook looks like a good resource that will provide fun and nourishment for kids.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review.
