This is the first review of a book I would not recommend buying. Many of the recipes call for cutting or intricate work that few moms let alone children would have the patience for. While we did get a great recipe out of it, it was not worth the purchase (and I bought it on sale!) I have found that there are few books out there in which you really can find a lot of recipes you enjoy but you can usually find more than one. We will keep this book around and try to adapt some of the ideas to work for us. Here is the book: Kids' Cookbook.

We made nachos. Here is the ingredient list:
  • 7 oz Tortilla Chips
  • 2 1/4 cups grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 Beefsteak Tomato, seeded and chopped
  • 12 Black Olives
  • 1 Green Chile
We attempted to purchase avocados and make guacamole but I did not make it to the store in time and they were all rock hard. Instead we found a snack pack of Wholly Guacamole and made do. If you have not tried this brand I insist you rush out and find some today. It taste just like something you would make at home. To make nachos:

Preheat oven to 400°F. Spread the tortilla chips on a nonstick baking sheet and scatter over cheese. Bake for 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted. Serve with the tomato, olives, and chile scattered over, and the dip.
