Nablopomo – Fairytale

The Fairy Tale Cookbook by Carol MacgregorThe Fairy Tale Cookbook by Sandre Moore

I went to find a link for the first book when I discovered the second book instead. I guess more than one person thought it’d be cool to publish a cookbook using fairytale foods, huh? Actually, if you keep looking, there are several cookbooks along the same idea.

Between the two of those right there, though, here are some of the recipes and tales covered:

~The Pancake (a big blueberry pancake)
~Hansel and Gretel (bread trail, gingerbread house,etc,)
~Goldilocks and the Three Bears (porridge)
~Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (poisoned apple)
~The Three Billy Goats Gruff (wild vegetables and grass)
~The Princess and the Pea (the pea)
~Puss in Boots (a wild rabbit for the king)
~Strega Nona (pasta)
~Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp (fruit)
~A Story, a Story (yams)
~The Bremen Town Musicians (baked beans and frankfurters)
~East of the Sun and West of the Moon (a fine meal, and fish)
~Sleeping Beauty (a feast of chicken)
~Little Red Riding Hood (the basket of goodies)
~Tom Thumb (pudding)
~The Twelve Months (strawberries, apples)
~Cinderella (oranges and lemons)
~The Nutcracker (pecans)
~The Ugly Duckling (bread and grain)
~The Gingerbread Man 
~Three Little Kittens (pie)
~Jack and the Beanstalk 
~Paul Bunyan (pancakes)
~The Three Bears (porridge) 
~Stone Soup

Yum.  Involve the kids in making their favorite fairy tale’s recipes and you may have an easier time with your pickiest eaters. Or hey, at least have some food maybe you’ll enjoy after you give in to their PB&J requests instead. :P
