Pasta & Pizza For Beginners
Author: Fiona Watt
Inside this book you will find a lot of wonderful recipes and each one has a picture of the finished dish. The step-by-step directions of each recipe are very easy to understand.
Since this is a book for beginners, there are step-by-step directions for cutting onions, garlic, and mushrooms. Included is a picture of different types of pastas, each one labeled as to what they are, and directions on how to cook them.
Would you like to make spaghetti alla carbonara or pasta with green vegetables? Perhaps you'd rather make a Chicago pizza pie or hot apple pizza? There are recipes for these and much more.
My son and I have made the meatballs in tomato sauce and the mini pizzas.
Captain Underpants and the Perilous Plot of Professor Poopypants
by Dav Pilkey
My son had read and collected several of the Captain Underpants books. He told me this particular book had been one of his favorites.
What's not to like about this book? It mentions underpants (which makes young kids giggle when saying it out loud) and there is a Professor whose last name is Poopypants (another word that makes kids giggle). It is hilariously comical and appeals to young kids.
QUESTION OF THE DAY: What is your favorite kind of pizza?
