Zucchini-Cheddar Cornbread Muffins

From Edible Pioneer Valley

PHOTO BY DOMINIC PERRI P

If you’ve got a set of little hands to help with baking, let them mix, measure, and stir the batter, then use an ice cream scoop to put it in the pan. Using a mini cookie cutter for shaping the squash slice atop each muffin will add some whimsy and fun to the process, but the end result will be just as tasty with simple rounds.

Cookbook Review ~ Kids Cook French

Review By: Gloria Cohen

This book is a delight; you don’t need to speak/read French to enjoy this collection of classic French recipes. This new book offers kids a world of culture and kitchen know-how as they learn to cook French.

KIDS COOK FRENCH

Les Enfants Cuisinent A LA Francaise

By Claudine Pepin

Illustrations By Jacques Pepin

Kids Cook French Cover (hi-res)

According to world-renown chef, Jacques Pepin, “the moment for a child to be in the kitchen is from the moment they are born”

Jacques daughter Claudine Pepin has created a fun interactive cookbook for both parents and kids, introducing them to the arts and joy of cooking. With an emphasis on fresh ingredients and hands-on preparation, dishes include traditional starters, main courses, and deserts.

You will find from the very start of this book, that the left side page is in English and the right side is in French. I like this, as it’s also a way to have fun recognizing the French words for the classic recipes found in restaurants around the world.… Read More

THE SOCIETY FOR THE PRESERVATION OF IRISH SODA BREAD. INFORMATION ON THE HISTORY AND PREPARATION OF TRADITIONAL IRISH SODA BREAD AS CREATED BY OUR ANCESTORS..

UNITED STATES

This site is meant to encourage modern bakers to get in touch with their Irish roots and use the traditional ingredients/recipes when making “traditional Irish soda bread.” Sure, make the fancy desserts for St. Patrick's Day, but save a spot on the table for Irish soda bread to remember how far the Irish have come from the days when it was the only thing on the table to today when our tables are filled with good things to eat and thoughts of the Famine years (An Gorta Mor) are long forgotten.
