Released January 2008

Everyone likes to swing through the kitchen now and then to open the refrigerator to see if there is something scrumptious to snack on, kids not excluded. In Holy Guacamole there are many easy to prepare (and easier to eat!) whip up and serve recipes to satisfy most any palate. The recipes range from sweet to spicy and range from easy to advanced preparation.

Easy recipes include: Pineapple Popsicles, Pimiento Cheese Dip, Quesadilla Bites, Quick energy Trail Mix and Citrusy Soda Pop. Intermediate: Mini Pepperoni Pizzas, Spicy Tortilla Chips, Monkey Milkshakes, Chili Cheese Popcorn, Raisiny Applesauce, Yogurt Fruit Kabobs and Parmesan Pita Chips. Advanced: Gooey Granola Bars and Holy Guacamole!

I read this book from cover to cover savoring the recipes and admiring the art work. In addition to the recipes there is a food pyramid, a note to parents, safety tips, and, for such a short book, a very well done index. A special “code” listed in the back can be plugged into Facthound. There the aspiring cook can find two more health related sites to think about and explore and find four additional kid friendly cookbooks. I think I’d like to go make one of those Monkey Milkshakes!
