    Need help with recipes for my niece

    My 11 yr old niece is starting to show some serious interest in learning how to cook. I had an idea to compile some kid-friendly recipes along with some of my easier recipes into a cookbook for her and get an apron and cooking utensils for her for Christmas.

    Does anyone have any recipe ideas? Cookbook suggestions????

    If you ever get gold medal flour - there is an offer for an abc cookbook on it - it's great. Really fun, easy meals for kids to make - I have some fun ones as well, I'll try to find them.

    Believe it or not, lasagna is easy to make.
    You can buy the noodles that bake with the lasagna so you don't have to boil them before. The recipe is on the box.
    I always use ricotta cheese but you can substitute with cottage cheese. (some people do...)

    Awesome idea! There is NOTHING like getting a new magazine every month.. It's my favorite type of gift! I think your niece would love that DKat!

    To live would be an awfully big adventure.

    Re: Need help with recipes for my niece

    Better Homes and Gardens and Betty Crocker both make cookbooks for your neices age range. Here are some links. They both say up to age 12 so she may be a little old for them. I would try to find some in person to make sure they are advanced enough to allow her to practice, and be challenged at the same time.

    Re: Need help with recipes for my niece

    I really like the Junior Cookbook. I checked that one out at target. It's got some fun illustrations and food names.

    I told her I'd give her some of my recipes if she was really serious but I am thinking it would be fun to have a Christmas gift with a cookbook, one from me that i make and then a nice one. Then a utensil holder that says "K*******'s utensils" filled with all the things she'll need to bake/cook with, and an apron. I'm hoping if we make homemade pizza's this coming month when we see them, it will get her more excited about cooking. I might give her a couple recipes to try.......

    I was just going to suggest pizza!

    Family Fun is a great magazine....it's owned by Disney, how could it be bad?
    A signature should go here.
