Over the last decade or so, I’ve amassed a sizable collection of children’s books, for which I’m truly grateful. While most tend to be the standard picture book fare, a small part of the collection is made up of cookbooks written for use with young children. With the release of Carol Odell’s book Once Upon a Time in the Kitchen: Recipes and Tales from Classic Children’s Stories, I’ve added a unique and standout item to this part of the collection.
As the title makes evident, this book isn’t merely a series of recipes for children to enjoy, but instead offers excerpts from twenty-one pieces of classic children’s literature, along with a related recipe for families to make as an accompaniment to the reading. When one opts to read a little Winnie-the-Pooh, what better to snack on than a “Bear Honey and Nut Spread?” Or, if Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is your selection, why not share some of “The Queen of Hearts’ Jam Tarts?”

Dawn’s cooking skills are far surpassed by her reading skillz. (Yes, they’re good enough to earn a ‘z.’) More wackiness can be found at her blog, my thoughts exactly.
