PICKLE IN THE MIDDLE And Other Easy Snacks by Frances Zweifel

PICKLE IN THE MIDDLE And Other Easy Snacks

Email this review


Easy, yes. Kids can read the recipes and follow them on their own. But if you require anything more than that from a beginning cookbook, you won't find it here. Most of Zweifel's recipes are sweet snacks with no redeeming gastronomical value (balls made from crushed vanilla wafers, orange juice, honey, and sugar); many are yuccky (apples spread with sweet pickles, pimento cheese spread, and deviled ham) or dumb (why add canned Chinese noodles to fruit yogurt?); some (cocoa from a mix; or pineapple chunks, banana slices, and strawberries speared together on a toothpick) are just too simple to rate a recipe; and a few (eggnog, cinnamon toast) too standard to rate recycling.
