Do you have a New Year's Resolution to cook more and eat healthier? I always feel like once the holidays filled with eggnog and endless sugar cookies are done, I'm ready to press the reset button on what me and my family are eating. Here are some of the most adorable and fun looking cookbooks I have found, and they contain some fun and healthy recipes to help me achieve our goal of good food choices. I really want to cook from these with my kids. Wish me luck!
This cookbook for ages eight and up is truly a cookbook for beginners that spells out each recipe in easy to understand picture-heavy tutorials. Some of the recipes look really cute too.
The title says it all - this is for the foodie kid in your life. The one who likes the stinky cheese on the cheese plate and is curious to try new things at dinner time. The recipes aren't your typical kid recipes, and with a little help from an adult, this book could be a first voyage into culinary adventure.
This is labelled for ages ten and up and is a comprehensive lesson on cooking techniques like knife skills, measuring, how to roast, and how to saute.
The Help Yourself Cookbook employs loads of playful humor and fun facts to empower kids to think about nutrition and cook for themselves, showing them that they are capable of becoming mini chefs!
I have had the adult original edition of The Forest Feast for about a year, and I love the unique, vegetarian recipes. They are really yummy. The Forest Feast for Kids features the same recipes with clear, step-by-step instructions.
The Silver Spoon is for Italy what The Joy of Cooking is for America - a classic tome with millions of standard recipes. We have this Silver Spoon for Children in our kitchen and have used it so many times. The lasagna recipe in this is actually my favorite lasagna recipe that I use all the time, even when I'm not cooking with mini chefs around.
