Okay, so the Minnie ‘n Me Book of Recipes isn’t much compared to say “Mastering the Art of French Cooking” or “The Betty Crocker Cookbook,” but my sister and I LOVED this book when we were kids. You would have thought we aspired to be world-renowned chefs by our enthusiasm for some of the recipes. Actually, we probably did consider ourselves masters of the kitchen.

These recipes are majorly kid-friendly; some don’t even require adults and those that do expressly list “Here’s What a Grownup Will Do.” Pretty simple!

Even though I’m not a kid anymore, I still put some of these together by habit…and I’m positive my sister does too. (Yes, C.J., if you read this, I’m sure you’ll recognize our old stand-bys…but don’t post any spoilers! Love ya!)

Now I’m a vegetarian, though, and some of the ingredients don’t match my lifestyle. That’s okay. I can make it vegetarian. I can even make it vegan (I hope). And some I may even get a little crazy or a little fancy with. We shall see…
