Same simple recipes you already have. Use the money for a Star Wars character instead.

Basic recipes a simple basic cookbook already has. Other than the pictures of Star Wars character toys standing on or next to the food, there is little that is original here. Example: Tuscan Raider Taters is simply mashed potatoes made from boiled potatoes, milk, butter, salt, pepper. The only unique suggestion is that if you want the mashed potatoes to be light brown in color as shown in the photo with the toy figure, you can add 2 T of soy sauce. The recipe goes into laborious detail about how to cut a raw potato into 1 in cubes to boil it (instead of just letting the kids leave the potato whole and avoiding the knife work), and then calls for the kids to drain the boiled potatoes in a colander in the sink. It does give a warning about steam burns but doesn't suggest that this step should be done by an adult. Also, the suggestion about adding 2 T of soy sauce to the pound of potatoes in the recipe to make them brown doesn't include leaving off the teaspoon of salt in the recipe, and only adding more salt "to taste.". The "Burrito" recipe is the same.... same old burritos you might make in your family already. Nothing that makes them uniquely Star Warsian.
