They are all grown now, and I'm looking foward to, in the future, having grandkids to cook for and spoil! So I was interested in Annabel Karmel's new book, "Top 100 Pasta Dishes: Easy Everyday Recipes That Children Will Love," a new cookbook directed at pasta dishes that kids would enjoy.
About The Book:
Who doesn’t love pasta? For most kids—and their parents—pasta is the best food in the world. It’s tasty and nutritious, it’s easy, quick, and economical to cook—and, even better, it comes in lots of fun shapes! Here is Annabel’s ultimate collection of one hundred pasta dishes, with a section for babies (it’s a good way to introduce texture) and toddlers (it’s great for fussy eaters), plus a huge variety of quick and easy recipes that older children will enjoy and that will become family favorites!
Filled with color photos, simple instructions, and clear notes on cooking and preparation times, plus symbols throughout to show which recipes are suitable for babies and younger children, and which recipes are suitable for freezing, this is the ultimate pasta cookbook for families everywhere. With Annabel’s help, dinnertime can finally be fuss free!
