Every caregiver knows the trials of feeding a picky eater. Some nights are truly a battle. Nerves are frayed, and a pleasant, relaxing dinner can quickly be filled with tears, tantrums, and some nights, a battle of wills. Well, my goal with this book is to tip the scales in our favor. One surefire way I’ve discovered to get my picky eaters to eat is to let them help make the meal. After all, food tastes better when you’ve had a hand in fixing it. Let your child try their hand with the recipes in this book. A child who becomes the superhero of dinnertime is one who eats super well.
Q&A With Donna
Q: What genre do you write and why?
I write children’s cookbooks because I believe it’s important for children to understand how to be independent in the kitchen. That way, they can grow up eating less take out and more food created by their own hands. Cooking also inspires their creativity. My daughter loves developing new flavors. I hope my book inspires other children to create or build upon the recipes found in my first book, Be a Superhero in the Kitchen.
Q: Have you ever written parts of your book on paper?
A: I write on my computer, notes on my phone, post-it notices, index cards, napkins… basically, I write down recipe ideas on whatever is handy at the moment. 😀
Q: If you’re a mom writer, how do you balance your time?
A: I think all our schedules have changed due to the pandemic, so my day is pretty much the norm by today’s standards. Everything is centered around the kitchen. I teach, work, brainstorm recipes, clean, play, and plan for the following day. And at night, I crash hard.
Q: Favorite dessert?
A: I do not have a sweet tooth. That honor would go to my husband and daughter. However, when summer hits, I do love the occasional vanilla ice cream topped with Cocoa Pebbles cereal. Delish!
Q: Name a quirky thing you like to do.
A: I purposely mismatch my socks. 😀
This has got to be the most adorable kids cook book ever!! I love the menu list in the front letting you know what recipes are in the book. There is also a Superhero Cooking Tips page which outlines great tips for anyone who cooks. The recipes are simple, yet provide a flavorful meal that is easy for children to master! Some of my favorite recipes from the book were Zap! Soup In Homemade Bread Bowls – a genius way to make your own bread bowls & Legendary Lemon Tarts – a sure way to melt mom’s heart! There are also variations to each recipe for add ins, making it your own.
The diversity of characters throughout the book magnificent! This book comes in a gorgeous hardcover that will last a lifetime.
I am a wife, mother of two kids, a lover of comic books, and a home cook. I believe in making mealtime an enjoyable experience through joint cooking and kid-friendly meals. I also believe kids that help with the cooking process are more likely to eat their meals, which leads to a happy, peaceful dining experience. Be a Superhero in the Kitchen is my first children’s cookbook, but I strive to publish more.
