Format: Paperback
This is a great cookbook! I've been using the recipes at a camp and the counselors and campers (ages 3-10) love each recipe. The simplicity of each recipe allows the children (and adults) to identify and appreciate each ingredient. Plus, its a great way to have the kids use the produce they've harvested themselves. Bravo!
