Written by Yvan D. Lemoine, this fun cookbook gives cause to celebrate on a daily basis. Filled with fun snippets that turn each day into a holiday it presents a corresponding recipe that’s really quite simple to make. The book is filled with bright and colorful photographs that add to its festive feeling.
As soon as we received it, the kids were thrilled to go through the book to see what their day their birthdays were and were, of course, looking up other days that they wish were their own. What great fun it is to explore a cookbook with the kids! We love to get them involved in the kitchen. And then it was our turn. Turns out, my birthday is Sponge Cake Day (I can live with that!) and Ari’s, well, its Glazed Spiral Ham Day. We’ll have to pass on that one. But I am sure Hot Fudge Sundae Day or Jelly Donut Day would work out just fine.
Here are some other days and recipes that look interesting:
• Fresh Spaghetti with Sage Butter for Spaghetti Day, January 4
• Mac & Cheese Empanadas for Empanada Day, April 8
• Gingerbread Ice Cream Sandwiches for Gingerbread Day, June 5
• Puffy Tacos for October 4th, Taco Day
• Baked Italian Roll for National Cold Cut Day, March 3
Or how about Gooey Sticky Buns With Cheese for Sticky Bun Day, February 21
We may have to just make them even though it’s not officially their day yet!
This entertaining cookbook is filled to the brim with interesting recipes and lots fun facts that make every day a Food Fest 365!
