The usual staples (meat balls, fried chicken, and baked fish as well as vegetable soup, sandwiches, cole slaw, etc.), the usual sweets including special-day cuties (frozen strawberry gelatin Valentines, cherry tree salad a week later, pineapple ""pop"" for Father's Day), and a few novelties like zucchini bread and pumpkin soup. This would be just another kids' cookbook were it not for the surfeit of corn: puns that bad (eggs-actly), scrambled words to go with the eggs, riddles, puzzles, knock-knock jokes, yuckky rhymes, more puns. . . . All they add is bulk, and an overstuffed feeling before you begin.
