The PlanetEsme Plan: The Best New Children's Books from Esme's Shelf: THIS LITTLE BUNNY CAN BAKE (PICTURE BOOK)
One particular section of Esme's blog that caught my interest is her write up on Kids in the Kitchen.
I have two of these card decks in  stock and have written reviews on the recipes Here's what Esme says:
"A deck of well-organized, color-coded, over-sized laminated recipe cards feature cut-paper illustrations, clear instructions and especially healthy, appealing and internationally inspired concoctions (mmm, toppling tomatoes, apple volcanoes, herby burgers, DIY pasta dough, paneer, guacamole) for consideration by intermediate-aged cooks. The lists of ingredients and directions are especially clear, but they do require some requisite skill, and warnings about heat and sharp edges could have been more visually explicit throughout the recipes than the rather general suggestion at the bottom of each card: "always have a grown-up with you when you cook." But if you are the grown-up who plans to always be there, your graduates of Molly Katzen's PRETEND SOUP and SALAD PEOPLE will enjoy this very usable deck of cooking inspiration, just right for the new movement toward healthier eating for kids (yay, Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution)." (8 and up)

As a barefoot Books Ambassador, I ordered a fairly new product from the company and was delighted and pleased with the deck containing 40 sturdy 6″x8″ cards of vegetarian recipes. Sure go ahead, you can add the meat if you want to. This is a good way to get kids involved without the cutting and the heat. Plus, children will learn food facts and info about vitamins/minerals.

Here's a sample list you'll find inside:

* Eggs 'n' Beans
Hummus Dippers

* Fantastic Fruit
Apple Volcanoes
Toppling Tomatoes (I can smell the basil!)
Yummy Hot Bananas

* Milk 'n' Dairy
Tropical Milkshake

* Spuds 'n' Grains
Mellow Yellow Rice
Pizza Party

* Vital Vegetables
Roasted Ratatouille
Picnic Kebobs
Mean Green Guacamole
