This delightfully illustrated children's cookbook offers a global menu of dishes to share with friends, family, and neighbors.

About the book:
Something delicious is cooking in the old apartment building on Garden Street! Pilar is mixing gazpacho, Monsieur Ping is stir-frying broccoli, Señora Flores is preparing a pot of beans, and Josef and Rafik are rolling meatballs. Other neighbors are making mini-quiches, baba ganoush, dhal, and peanut butter cookies. When they're all finished cooking everyone gathers in the garden to enjoy a delicious meal and each other's company. Each inviting spread in this storybook offers a recipe from a different culinary tradition. Dishes that kids love, like guacamole, spaghetti, and banana bread are interspersed with others that include less familiar ingredients, such as mirin, tahini, and turmeric. The recipes explain how each dish is made and come with fun and detailed illustrations. Combining simple, fresh flavors with recipes from around the world, this book will nourish and inspire budding cooks while whetting the appetites of their more experienced helpers.

  1. I like to make organic stuffed peppers.

  2. 2 teaspoons Simply Organic Cumin Seed Ground 2.31 oz.
    1 teaspoon Simply Organic Oregano Leaf 0.75 oz.
    1 teaspoon Simply Organic Basil 0.54 oz.
    1 teaspoon Simply Organic Garlic Powder 3.64 oz.
    1/2 teaspoon Simply Organic Onion Powder 3.00 oz.
    4 medium bell peppers, halved
    1 1/2 cups quinoa
    1 cup corn kernels (fresh or frozen)
    1 medium zucchini (about 1 cup), chopped
    1 medium summer squash (about 1 cup), chopped

    1. In a medium saucepan, bring the quinoa, broth/water and corn kernels to a boil. Cover with a lid, and reduce to a simmer for 10 minutes, until the liquid is absorbed and the quinoa is fluffy. Using a fork, whisk the chopped spinach into the quinoa mix. Remove from the heat and set aside.

    2. Heat the grill for 10 minutes. In a small bowl, mix together the seasonings.

    3. Place the zucchini and summer squash in a grill-safe skillet or baking sheet. Toss the seasoning with the zucchini and summer squash. Place the skillet or baking sheet (with the veggies) on the grill and cook for 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the grill.

    5. In a large bowl, combine the quinoa mix, grilled zucchini and squash, 1 cup shredded cheese and kidney beans. Fill each pepper half with the filling. Top with 1 tablespoon of cheese.

    6. Brush the grill with oil (to prevent the peppers from sticking) and place each stuffed pepper on the grill (filling side up) for 10 to 12 minutes, until the cheese is melted and bottom of the peppers are slightly charred.

  3. My most favorite recipe to make that is quick & convenient & yummy is Chicken Balboni. Put boneless chicken breasts in glass baking pan. Mix a container of sour cream, 1/2 cup mayo & 1/2 cup of grated parmesan in a bowl. Spread this mixture over the chicken. Sprinkle thyme over the top. Bake in 350 degree oven for 50 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes, then serve. Delicious!

  4. I like to make my family ham and cheese casserole. Its quick and easy. Thank you.

  5. I love stuffed shrimp. Couldn't copy & paste the recipe on my iPad but here's the link. Yum!

  6. My sons love when I cook chicken parmesan for them.

  7. Fried chicken made with my homemade breadcrumbs.
