You’re the Chef, A Cookbook Companion for a Smart Girl’s Guide: Cooking
This is my newest book and I am very, very proud of it. There is nothing more exciting and gratifying than cooking with kids, or watching (listening to) kids cooking.
You’re the Chef is filled with beautiful photographs and practical, delicious, around-the-clock recipes – from blueberry pancakes to perfect marinara. The chocolate chip cookie recipe is my absolute go-to, as is the crunchy granola.
Creating this book was the highlight of my year and my heart is in it.
