The United States Cookbook,
This review is from: The United States Cookbook: Fabulous Foods and Fascinating Facts From All 50 States (Paperback)
As the mother of a 10 year old daughter who loves both cooking and social studies, I was very impressed by the authors' creativity in combining both into one excellent volume. The choice of recipes were very appropriate, from the standpoint of preparation by a child, what youngsters like to eat, and what the region is known for. What makes this kid-friendly cookbook unique, though, is the interesting information about the states that preceeds each entry. I found myself reading through the pages to learn fascinating information about the history, local customs, etc. without even needing to cook anything that day. It gives you something to pass the time while your meal is in the oven, too! Truly a great book--I highly recommend it!
