Holiday Goodies!

Thanksgiving is next week and all of those December holidays are just around the corner. Get your kids involved in the menu and cook up something delicious.

Maybe you'd like to try something traditional for Thanksgiving--something made by American Indians or a recipe from the colonial period. If so, take a look at Cooking up History by Suzanne I. Barchers. If a regional dish is preferred, The United States Cookbook by Joan D'Amico would be a good choice. Looking for a recipe that reflects your own family heritage? We have The Kids' Multicultural Cookbook by Deanna F. Cook and The Kids Around the World Cookbook by Deri Robins. Kids Cook 1-2-3 by Rozanne Gold is a collection of easy recipes that use only three ingredients each--perfect for kids. For vegetarians, we have The Jumbo Vegetarian Cookbook by Judi Gillies and Vegetarian Cooking for Beginners by Fiona Watt. Cookies are always a welcome treat, especially at holiday time. Check out Bake the Best-Ever Cookies! by Sarah A. Williamson and Amazing Cookies by Elizabeth MacLeod. There are lots more cookbooks available, both in the children's and adults' collection. Ask us, and we'll help you find them. (Give us a cookie, and we'll do just about anything you ask!)
