“Cooking can fill you with a sense of pride. The more you do it, the more you’ll enjoy making tasty, satisfying food. I hope this book will help you pursue your cooking dreams, whether it’s surprising your family with breakfast or being able to cook exactly what you’re craving,” Nancy Polanco. 

I was gifted How-To Cookbook for Kids cookbook and as soon as I looked through it I couldn’t wait to try it. The information provided in the cookbook is essential to any budding young chef. I love how detailed the recipes are and how she always says don’t be afraid to ask for help. That’s something we could all do a little more often. 

I am going to start gifting this to my favorite young people in my life, plus I know some adults who could benefit from having this cookbook too.

Baked Parmesan-Garlic Tortilla Chips

Homemade tortilla chips are always a treat. They make any dip taste even better. This recipe was really simple to follow and any  young chef could make it. The only thing I would advise is to keep an eye on the chips as they are baking. My oven can run a little hot and the chips almost burned, I barely caught them in time. 

I served my baked Parmesan-garlic tortilla chips with guacamole I make from the Frontera original guacamole mix. One important thing to note is that a parent should always be on hand when a young chef is cutting an avocado. It can be a tricky thing to cut, and many adults have injured themselves cutting an avocado.

Buttermilk Waffles with Maple Syrup

Waffles are great breakfast for kids to learn how to make. This recipe is very straight forward and simple to make. Buttermilk is the perfect ingredient to make the waffles so light and fluffy. I loved how they really held up well to the syrup. As you can see above I like a lot of syrup on my waffles. 

These waffles are a great breakfast or if you’re like my family a delicious dinner. Kids will love making their own waffles and they can add any additional toppings they want.
