Comments: Another in Barbara Berry's series of cookbooks for little girls (ages 6 and up), this one sets them on the road to cooking and thinking organically and ecologically. Some of it is not ecological rocket science, but small steps and starting young will surely add up to a lifetime of good green decisions.
The 30 recipes include drinks, ice creams, dips and chips, a soup, frittata, and noodle dish, breads, muffins, fruit dishes, jams and nut butters, cookies, cupcakes, meringues, and cakes.
Our one concern is the recommendation to line baking sheets with Silpat, parchment paper, or a brown paper grocery bag. Our understanding is that most grocery bags these days are recycled and contain glues and other chemicals that could pose a risk to food when exposed to heat. We'd stick with the Silpat or parchment paper.
