The Simple Art of Cooking (Paperback)
This book is for kids, so it has plenty of great kid-friendly recipes. The setup of the recipes is easiest to hardest, so it starts with simple things like smoothies and ends with some more difficult recipes like scones.
I decided to make this book because a lot of kids' cookbooks out there have these giant steps of just words. They pack a lot information and steps in one "step," and it's really easy to get confused or mess up. Then, the only picture they usually have is this absolutely perfect end shot, which was obviously taken by a professional photographer. Kids try to make it, but then it doesn't turn out like the picture, and they get really frustrated and sad. But in this book, the steps are short, and each one has a photo showing what I'm doing and how to do it. There is an end shot on some of them, but it's not perfect because that's not what I was striving towards. I wanted it to look realistic, so I just made it and took its photo just how it was.
This is a cookbook for kids, by a kid.
