So Mollie Katzen, the woman who wrote those great Moosewood vegetarian cookbooks, has some cookbooks for kids (and the adults who love them). They are brilliant. Simply brilliant. I love how each recipe has four whole pages devoted to it. The first two pages are for the assisting adults and the last two pages are for the kids... sorta comic book style. Anyway, we've been checking them out at the library and even following some of the recipes. Pretend Soup was such a hit that we've made it twice. Donut keeps saying how proud she is of herself for starting and finishing a food-making project. She really gets into the stirring part!
