Review: The Supernatural Kids Cookbook Haile's Favorites by Nancy Mehagian, Haile Thomas


SUMMARY FROM NETGALLEY.COM:
Easy lessons for preparing natural food from kid chef and Kids Can Cook host Haile Thomas, who knows how to make cooking fun
By the age of nine, Haile Thomas was in the kitchen, experimenting on her own. Now, the TEDxKids cooking sensation shares some of her favorite recipes from healthy-cooking expert Nancy Mehagian. With a focus on kid-approved recipes that are as tasty as they are nutritious, Haile has selected fifty of her favorite recipes, plus five of her own creations!
This charming cookbook shows you the secret to making fresh, healthy food that children will adore. Whether it’s monkey muffins or an egg-tastic frittata, these recipes are fun, fast, and positively delicious, offering all the nutrition kids need with no artificial processing. Even more valuable are her tips on healthy eating, kitchen safety, and the basic cooking techniques that your child will need to become comfortable in the kitchen. The Supernatural Kids Cookbook: Haile’s Favorites won’t just give you recipes to cook for your children—it will teach them to cook for you.

MY TAKE:
This book is great if you're a fan of healthy eating and teaching children how to make things in the kitchen.

In The Supernatural Kids Cookbook Haile's Favorites, readers get not only a bunch of delicious, easy and healthy recipes, but they also get to read about the basic kitchen utensils they may need, as well as cooking and safety reminders.

This is a nice beginner cookbook for young kids. I'm not sure how thrilled they'd be about eating quinoa and zucchini, of which there are about a couple of recipes of each, but most of the recipes are things that are still healthy and which most kids won't mind eating.

Personally, I'm planning on making the cheese omelet, cheesy papas, sedona tortilla soup, baked chicken tenders, and poutine. Yes, I like cheese.

For those with pets, there's also a recipe for peanut butter & cheddar dog treats.

Thanks to NetGalley and Open Road Media Young Readers for the e-copy.

THE GOOD:

  1. The recipes are healthy and look delicious.
  2. The recipes look easy to follow.
  3. It's a good cookbook for beginners. 

THE BAD:

  1. It would be nice if there were pictures of the finished product. 

FAVORITE QUOTE/S:
When it rains, we pour. Soup, that is.

  3. You are looking for a good cookbook for beginners.
