Book Title: BE A SUPERHERO IN THE KITCHEN by Donna Glass
Category: Children’s Fiction (Ages 6-10), 48 pages
Genre: Children’s Picture Cook Book
Release date: March 2021
Content Rating: G. This children’s book is for everyone.
Every caregiver knows the trials of feeding a picky eater. Some nights are truly a battle. Nerves are frayed, and a pleasant, relaxing dinner can quickly be filled with tears, tantrums, and some nights, a battle of wills. Well, my goal with this book is to tip the scales in our favor. One surefire way I’ve discovered to get my picky eaters to eat is to let them help make the meal. After all, food tastes better when you’ve had a hand in fixing it. Let your child try their hand with the recipes in this book. A child who becomes the superhero of dinnertime is one who eats super well.
I am a wife, mother of two kids, a lover of comic books, and a home cook. I believe in making mealtime an enjoyable experience through joint cooking and kid-friendly meals. I also believe kids that help with the cooking process are more likely to eat their meals, which leads to a happy, peaceful dining experience. Be a Superhero in the Kitchen is my first children’s cookbook, but I strive to publish more.
Quick Question for Donna Glass:
If you were stuck on a deserted island, which 3 books would you want with you?
Hmm, good question. I think How to Survive on a Deserted Island (Prepare to Survive) by Tim O’Shei would be the optimal choice. I haven’t personally read it, but maybe I should invest in a copy just in case. 😀
The other two books I would select are Superstitious by R. L. Stine and Iced by Karen Marie Moning. I first read Superstitious back in 1995, and it started my love of the paranormal romance genre. Through my years of travel, my copy has become lost. One day, I will place another copy in my library–after reading it a half dozen times first, of course.
The next book, Iced by Karen Marie Moning, is just brilliant. KMM is a phenomenal author. She writes big books, which I love. When you’re stranded on a deserted island, you need a book with girth because you never know when the rescue boat or chopper will arrive.
As a mother of three children, each with their own distinctive sense of what tastes great, I feel like I am always trying to find a balance between what I know all three WILL eat and what all three SHOULD eat. I know that I can’t be alone in this struggle. Any tips and tricks are always appreciated. That’s why I love Be a Superhero in the Kitchen! With colorful illustrations, this book gives great advice and yummy recipes to help even the most frustrated adult deal with hungry but picky children.
Be a Superhero in the Kitchen contains a detailed list of Superhero Cooking Tips and delicious kid-friendly recipes including Super Chicken Tacos, Powerful Potato Cakes, Mega Mac and Cheese Pizza, Crime Fighter’s Cookie Fluff, Legendary Lemon Tarts, and many more!
Seriously. You had me at Powerful Potato Cakes. And that Crime Fighter’s Cookie Fluff. Oh my! And as a bonus, not only are the recipes easy to make and delicious, but they are friendly on your wallet too. That’s always a BIG plus for me.
Even if you don’t have a picky eater, and just want to have some fun in the kitchen with your child, I recommend this book!
