The Ultimate Kids' Cookbook is now available for pre-order! I'm so excited to share the cookbook cover reveal and an inside peek at the awesome kid-friendly recipes your family will enjoy when the book launches on August 21.
See those two joyous faces?? Those are the faces of children who have put up with weeks worth of photo chaos and multiple photo sessions in an attempt to get just the right picture for their mom's first cookbook. Those are the joyful hands of girls who nailed the photo at long last and have been told our work is done!
Friends, I never ever guessed what it takes to produce a cookbook.
Months of my life passed by in a blur of food and photos and editing. By the time the smoke cleared and I raised my head to look around, it was the end of March!
Now that my heart rate is returning to normal, I am SO EXCITED to finally be able to share the cover of The Ultimate Kids' Cookbook with you and a fun little sneak peek of what you're going to find inside when the book launches on August 21.
Could someone please call for a drumroll??
The Ultimate Kids' Cookbook cover:
Isn't it just so pretty?? They picked some of my favorite recipes for the cover and it is a crazy thrill to see the Peanut and Little Pea on the cover.
I love cookbooks. It's an addiction, really. I've bought most of the ones made for kids you'll find on the market and I was disappointed in almost all of them.
I went out and wrote the book I wished my girls could have. I picked our favorite family recipes--real food that *I* make by myself in any given week--and I broke it down with simple step by step instructions for my kids to be able to do it (with just a tiny bit of assistance from their adult helper.)
I put my daughters in the driver's seat and thought about how I could explain each recipe in a way they would understand and connect with.
And it worked!
My 7 & 10 year old had a blast testing out my instructions and producing dishes like:
- Easy Cherry Almond Scones
- Orange Blueberry Pancakes
- Chicken Finger Dunkers
- Mini Meatball Skillet
But then I pushed them a little farther and challenged them to try their hand at more adult dishes like:
- Buffalo Chicken Pasta
- Pesto Pizza with Fresh Tomatoes
- Potsticker Stir-Fry
- Greek Lemon Drop Chicken Soup
- Sweet-and-Spicy Pork Tenderloin with Roasted Carrots
The Ultimate Kids' Cookbook is perfect for kids ages 6 and up. It has a gorgeous brightly colored design that both your sons and your daughters will love. Want to see a sneak peek of a few of the pages??
I can't show you everything yet, but here's just a little teaser:
As cute as the table of contents page is, it's the recipe instructions pages that are truly special and unlike anything else you've seen in a cookbook for kids. I can't wait to share them with you!!
I love how playful and fun they designed the book. Kids won't be able to keep their hands off of it.
And the best news is that I have a free gift for you if you pre-order the book right now! I wrote a companion eBook and designed a grocery list planner for your kids that will work perfectly with the book. I will send you the full bundle for FREE, get all the details here.
