I was sent a free copy of the Green Princess Cookbook: Sweets and Treats to Save the Planet to review. It is a very cute cookbook for girls between 6 and 12, with sweets and treats to make and some simple green living advice. The book is a hardback with a spiral binding, making it easy to place flat on the counter. It is very girly, but the recipes are cute with mostly nature or green inspired names.
My kids loved making the homemade butter using marbles, although at 6 and 4 years they got tired of shaking. They also liked the Cinnamon-Maple crisps made with wonton wrappers.
From author, chef and founder of Batter Up Kids Cooking School, Barbara Beery, the delicious recipes are suited for well suited for the 8 to 12 set. The book is part of the popular Pink Princess Cookbooks series, and is a good addition for those little girls interested in going green.
Some of the recipes call for ingredients that are difficult to find organic or local or for prepare mixes that defeat the purpose of local, make your own healthy food. Other than that, the book is darling, and would make a super gift for a little princess interested in being green, particularly if coupled with a package of ingredients! And, all of the books published by Gibbs Smith are printed on recycled, 100% post-consumer waste or FSC-certified papers.
