Yesterday I wrote about a great new cookbook for kids. I would also like to recommend some other new cookbooks just in case that one isn't enough and more recipes are needed.
No Bake Gingerbread House For Kids by Lisa Anderson & Zac Williams. Every year my nephews aunt gives them a Gingerbread making kit. This book is nice because there is no kit needed and the ingredients are easy to get. A perfect cookbook for this time of year.
The Do it Myself Kids' Cookbook: Nothing Hot, Nothing Sharp by Laurie Goldrich Wolf is for the youngest cooks in the house. These recipes can be made by a child with no direct help from an adult. I know lots of kids who will love this because they always want to do things themselves.
Boys Can Cook Too! Incredible Cookies by Kelly Lambrakis. Normally I wouldn't suggest a book that is gender specific but I couldn't help myself with this one. This is part of a series of books geared toward boys and cooking. I was drawn to this one because the author has three boys just like my brother. My brother's boys always liked to help in the kitchen. I have a great photo of my nephew JoJo with his Grandma last year baking our bread for Christmas morning. Even though it is technically for boys I am sure if there is a girl in the family they will like it too.
Teen Cuisine by Matthew Locriccio is one of the best books for young adults I have seen. I know most teens could probably use a grownup cookbook but this is great to get them started. I liked the set up and recipes plus the photographs are truly helpful.
Bean Appetit: Hip & Healthy Ways to Have Fun with Food by Shannon Payette Selp and Kelly Parthen. I just loved the title of this book. I also loved that it shows how eating healthy can be fun--as you know my other life involves veggie burgers (thesavorygarden.blogspot.com) and healthy eating.
These are just a few newer cookbooks for kids out in the marketplace. These make great gifts for this time of year--Buon Appetito!
