One of my first loves is food, so it’s not unusual that learning to cook comes a very close second. One of the new books in the collection is Fairy Tale Feasts: A Literary Cookbook for Young Readers & Eaters, a storybook, fact book and cookbook rolled in a nifty package. It is fun and interesting to read because other than the stories, there were recipes that children could try at home, like Very French Toast. Because the recipes are kid-friendly, a lot of them are simple no-meat offerings. The book was also peppered with various trivial facts that would catch children's attention, like facts about eggs, carrots and grapes to name a few. The book is nicely illustrated with colorful artwork on glossy pages that can be easily wiped clean in case of a spill accident while trying the recipes. Check this book out and try one or two recipes. I tried the Very French Toast recipe, and serve the toasts with eggs, bacon and fruit. We had a wonderful breakfast…a sure hit with my family. Great for parents and their kids ages 4-8.
