All three of the books rely rather heavily on recipes for snacks and deserts. Things that kids are normally attracted to. However the "Mermaid Cookbook", third in the series includes more meal items such as salads and sandwiches and a greater use of fruit. Which gravitates more towards an awareness (albeit an unconcious one for many children.) of better eating habits.
Don't be mistaken or put off that these recipes aren't vegan or part of the trend of tricking kids into eating mystery veggies. Beery is catering towards flavor, so butter and sugar are used in her recipes. However she does suggest the replacement of honey for those moms out there who want to keep a handle on their childrens diets.
Another improvement from the Pink Princess Cookbook (still 5 stars by the way!) is that in both this and the Fairies Cookbook she includes metric and oven conversion charts.
This Cookbook is a Hit for children and adults.
Recipes like Coconut Fruit Sorbet served in a coconut shell and Mermaid Bay Baked Bananas are just a couple of the scrumptious tropical treats in the Fruits de Mermaid section. The refreshing pink Sea Foam Floats (shown on the cover) are one of several drinks in the Seaside Sipping area.
Goldfish Gorp from the Crunchy Sea Snacks chapter would be a great take home gift from a Mermaid Party, especially packaged in a shell or other type of sea themed container. The Small Bites area has main dishes like Triton's Tuna Fish Sandwiches, which are made with plain yogurt (healthier!), just a little mayo and lots of fresh, colorful veggies and then cut into fun fish shapes.
One fun suggestion in the Cookies and Candy section is the Star Fish cookies that are cut out with a star shaped cookie cutter and decorated with beach themed candies. A couple of the Sweet Mermaid Treats are the Water Fairy Ice Pops, which are star shaped with a cinnamon stick inserted into the middle as a fun handle and the gorgeous Seashell Candy which is made by melting vanilla candy discs and swirling them with pastel colors and letting them harden in shell shaped candy molds.
If you know someone that loves mermaids and seaside fun, the Mermaid Cookbook has lots of ideas to make the celebration extra special!
