Hooray! It's time for Kelli's "Show and Tell Friday"!! Instead of me just looking at all the participants blogs, I am participating, too.
Today I would love to share with y'all my very first cookbook- Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse Cookbook. I cannot remember what age I was when my mom bought it for me, but I do have lots of fond memories of this book! I was very excited when I saw it at my parents' house a few years ago- I had forgotten all about it! I look forward to giving it to Elizabeth one day.
Here it is- Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse Cookbook!!!
There are very clear instructions in this cookbook to learn to measure properly.
Wonderful "Kitchen Rules" are included for safety while cooking. Things like "If you have long hair, tie it back" and "Wash your hands!!" Definitely all things that children need to learn about before learning to cook.
I remember making "Mickey Mouse's Sugar Cookies" with my mom. Yum!!!
By far, my favorite recipe from this cookbook was always "King Louie's Fruit Salad"!! We didn't serve it on lettuce leaves like the recipe says (Goodness gracious!! I was changing around recipes even as a child!!!!), but I remember making this for our Sunday dinners quite often when I was younger. Hmmm. I think I need to put this on our menu soon!!
There are lots more wonderful instructions as well as fabulous (and easy!!!) recipes in this fun cookbook. I am so glad that I found it after all these years.
EDIT: In case anyone is interested, I just found the cookbook for sale online!! Go here to see it.
