Imagine a world without meltdowns around mealtime, where kids actually get excited to eat their vegetables and try new foods because they made it. This cookbook turns mealtime into a fun family activity with kids at the center of the action chopping veggies, stirring the pot or adding ingredients. The recipes are made in one pot for less mess, less cleanup and less work, but big flavor. Get a nutritious home-cooked meal on the table that your kids will be thrilled to eat because they had a hand in creating it. No more arguments with picky eaters!
Kids ages 6 and up can grow into the recipes, with some parent involvement for tasks like cutting meat and handling boiling water, then gradually doing more and more parts on their own as they get older and build their skills. The recipes are built on familiar foods with interesting flavor twists and ideas for variations, which helps families avoid getting stuck in a rut making the same foods all the time. Example recipes include Cheesy Egg Breakfast Casserole, Peanut Butter and Jelly Waffles, Pork Picadillo Burrito Bowls, Crustless Chicken Pot Pie and Potsticker Stir Fry. This cookbook will become a beloved treasure throughout the years, inspiring families to bond together in the kitchen.
This cookbook has 65 recipes and more than 65 color photographs.
