Honest Pretzels

The cover of this book grabbed my attention one day as we were waiting for story time at the library. Someone had left it out in the children’s section, which I found odd; why would a cookbook be in the children’s section, after all?

It turns out that Honest Pretzels is a children’s cookbook, and a delightful one at that! It’s full of fun and simple ways to make everything from homemade pretzels to scrambled eggs and more. As a very so-so cook (okay, I pretty much stink at everything but baking), I thought this cookbook was an awesome find. People like me who lack the culinary skills that many seem to wield so easily can learn to make plenty of different dishes and snacks with this easy how-to guide.
