And so it all begins.
I'm incredibly proud to bring you my third book: Dad's Awesome Book of Recipes -- everything you need to put the kids in charge of cooking.
As a special promo, I'll be giving away a signed three-pack of books every week until Father's Day.
Simply share this post on Facebook or leave a comment below by Thursday at noon PST and I'll randomly select a winner of the cook book, the craft book, and the science book -- everything you need for a summer of fun with the kids.
But now back to the cook book.
It's designed to read together and then let the kids have their turn at the stove, or microwave, or blender -- whatever you're comfortable letting them use for the moment. Jam packed with dozens of recipes, it's got everything you need for a quick snack or a family meal.
But even better ... it has guests!
I reached out to a few of my favorite dads I know are handy in the kitchen and asked them to contribute some recipes that they like to make with the kiddos, so a big hats off to Jason Sperber, Whit Honea, Doyin Richards, Chris Routly. Their recipes are delicious and fun to make, and I'm just pleased to have my name attached anywhere near theirs.
I'll be writing about more recipes in the book, but here is one of my favorites to get you started: the 5-minute microwave chocolate chip cookie.
It's easy, delicious, and incredibly fun to make. I have kids over for a play date and almost as soon as they walk in the door, they say, "Can we make the cookie?!"
