This cookbook assumes kids are perfectly capable of learning to cook, and put real food on the table for their families. From breakfast items like pancakes and scrambled eggs to lasagna, dinner rolls, and dessert (with tasty treats like honest pretzels in between!), the recipes in this cookbook are good staples and perfect for the family that cooks together. It also helps older kids be independent cooks. Start with pretzels today–and then branch out!
