Readers’ Favorite Book Review!

Reviewed By Kristine Zimmerman for Readers’ Favorite

Kids love superheroes! Even better, kids love being superheroes. Donna Glass has written a cookbook with that in mind. Be a Superhero in the Kitchen enlists kids in helping to make the food that they eat. She starts her book with a list of superhero cooking tips including the tip to make sure to ask for help when needed because teamwork is awesome. Each recipe is laid out simply on one page with ingredients and instructions. Many spreads include some superhero tips in speech bubbles that suggest ways to personalize the recipe. There are healthy kid-friendly main and side dishes as well as some yummy deserts and a punch recipe.

Be a Superhero in the Kitchen by Donna Glass is truly a cookbook written for kids. What kid would not want to try making Crime Fighter’s Cookie Fluff? The recipes are original and not overwhelming. Each recipe has minimal ingredients and simple directions. The recipes themselves, while including some healthy ingredients, will be things kids want to eat, especially because they will have a hand in making them. The illustrations by Alejandro Chamberlain are spot-on. They showcase a diverse group of families, and kids will love the fun superhero costumes! I especially loved the colander on the head. Parents are often looking for ways to get food into their picky eaters. Be a Superhero in the Kitchen will be a cookbook they will want to share with their kids. They may even want to dress up like superheroes themselves the next time they are in the kitchen.

It’s A Super Menu!!

With the threat of Corvid-19, food, especially fresh, is becoming hard to come by. I’ve heard many people wonder what to fix for dinner. Over the next few weeks. I’ll be posting sample budget-friendly menus with Super Tips!! 

Enjoy and Stay Safe! 

 

Chili with hot dogs 

No ground beef? See if your local grocery store has ground chicken or turkey. 
No buns? Slice the hotdogs and mix it right into the chili. 

 

Tacos

Last week, we made tacos using ground turkey because there wasn’t any beef in the store. It was a hit! No lettuce, no problem, used canned corn as a topping. It tasted great! 

 

Italian beef (slow cooker meal)

If your store doesn’t have a roast, check if they have boneless/skinless chicken breast.
Kroger had a lot of kielbasa in their coolers, so check if your store has it in stock as well. If you are lucky to find baby potatoes then make Incredible Italian Sausage and Potatoes. The recipe can be found in Be a Superhero in the Kitchen.

 

Ham and scalloped potatoes

Don’t forget to treat your family to dessert. Make Amazing Pudding Parfaits. The recipe is also found in Be a Superhero in the Kitchen.

 

Bacon, egg, and cheese sandwiches

On a biscuit, on bread, in between two waffles or pancakes, your family is going to love dinner tonight! Since it’s breakfast for supper, make some Magical Cereal Bars! Yup, the recipe is also found in Be a Superhero in the Kitchen.

 

Make pizza at home.

This can be done with raw dough, on a bagel, on a biscuit, on a pre-made crust. All you need is cheese, sauce, and toppings. Our store had all of it, but supplies were limited. Use what you can find. This is the time to be creative! 

 

If you are able, support your local restaurants. They are hurting as well and would appreciate your visit.
