Our Favorite Cookbook – Cooking with Mickey & Friends by Pat Baird

My favorite room in our new house is the kitchen. We have a great big island in the center of the kitchen which gives me plenty of room to prepare dinner – and there’s even room for all the kids to help me.

Since we finally have cupboard space again, the first thing I did was reserve one gigantic cupboard for my cookbooks. {I’m not the world’s best cook, but I sure pretend to be!}

Cooking with Mickey & FriendsWhile organizing the cookbooks, I happened across our favorite book: Cooking with Mickey & Friends by Pat Baird. It’s no secret that we love Mickey Mouse. We are all dreaming of the day when we can take the kids to Disney World so they can meet Mickey & all their favorite Disney characters. For now, though, we have to bring Mickey into our home, and this cookbook is the perfect way to do just that. I am SOOOO excited to have this book in easy reach again!

Inside the book you’ll find over 30 recipes – breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks & sides, desserts, and even beverages. The recipes are easy to follow, easy to read, and list absolutely everything you will need including utensils and ingredients. You get step-by-step instructions, and if there’s a step that requires an adult’s help, it’s clearly marked. My 7 year old loves reading the recipes out loud and everyone gets to help.

The recipes are actually really good. Our favorites include The Sultan’s Hummis Dip with Fresh Vegetables, Abu’s Baked Apples {heaven!}, Alice’s Cheesy Rice, Mufasa’s Mouthwatering Chops {made with Wendy’s Honey of a Peach topping!}, and Peter Pan’s Sparkling Pink Punch.

I’ve scoured the internet trying to find the best price for you all because I *highly* recommend this cookbook to anyone with kids. Unfortunately, the only copies I can find are used copies, but at least the price is right! Amazon has several used copies available, and so does AbeBooks.com.
