I was recently asked to review a cookbook just for kids and families that love to cook together. Right up my alley, of course I will! The book came and I have been reading it like a well... book. LOL There are so many tips, hints and just great information. So while it's a great cookbook full of yummy looking recipes it also has lots of great information. This is a perfect book for us right now because Meghan has asked me to do a unit study of healthy foods. We will be using it as one of our resources.
The Whole Family Cookbook.
As a working mom, I can relate to the challenges of feeding a busy family. The Whole Family Cookbook offers time-saving strategies for shopping and cooking, along with the resources you need to cook healthy, local food in any season. Our delicious recipes will please discriminating adults and will tickle the taste buds of your children, getting them excited to eat healthy meals – for their bodies and for the benefit of the planet.
We decided to start by making the Apple Puff.
The instructions for the recipes are very easy for kids to understand and they are simple things to make. Meghan can understand the instructions by herself.
Here the kids are taking turns mixing the batter.
Meghan peeled the apples and they both helped to brown them on the stove.
I didn't have an oven safe skillet, well I wasn't sure if it was or not, so we poured the apples into this corningware bowl/pan? and finished the recipe.
All in all this is a great book! I love how simple it is to understand. The recipes are things kids will like and try. I am very blessed to have gotten to try it out and share with you all! If you want more information please check out Michelle's website at What's Cooking with Kids.
