When are Red Beans and Rice not Red Beans and Rice?
Why, when they are Remarkable Foon's Sizzling Hot Pebbles, that's when! In Green Eggs and Ham Cookbook: recipes inspired by Dr. Seuss! the foods that many of us have tried take a new spin of whimsy when accompanied by a verse from one of Dr. Seuss's many books. For example, simple strawberries with yogurt dip becomes Brown Bar-ba-loots' Truffula Fruits and goes along with The Lorax. Nupboards' Nuggets are a lot like granola and can be discovered in the book There's a Wocket in My Pocket! From main dishes to sweets, this book is a must for all ages (not just for the fun, but for the tastiness, too! The recipes are delicious!)
The author, Georgeanne Brennan, is also repsonsible for other books of food and fun ranging from a Williams-Sonoma cookbook to one called A Pig in Provence: good food and simple pleasures in the south of France. I think I'm going to try her book entitled Salad next.
