Little Monsters Cookbook - recipes and photos by Zac Williams
Kids' monster-themed parties will be frightfully delicious with goodies from this gruesome guide to monster meals! Little Monsters can choose their poison potion, from Wolfsbane Elixir to the Count Orlock Chocolate shake and Punch from the Black Lagoon - all while nibbling on Monster-in-the-Moat Fondue, Claws of the Yeti, or Swamp Gumbo. With several recipes to choose from for each monster creature - werewolves, vampires, mummies, Frankenstein, swamp creatures, and zombies - kids can choose a variety of each, or have a single-monster theme for the party.
Each recipe is accompanied by a full-color (usually full-page) photo and simple-to-follow step-by-step directions that even kids can follow.
Beverages, appetizers, main dishes, desserts - Little Monsters satisfies every monstrous appetite!
Creative Recipes for Monster Parties
Great Halloween Party Food Ideas!
Little Monsters Cookbook has a variety of recipes, from tried-and-true favorites with funky monster names (Werewolf Skins are just regular old potato skins) to twists that make an old recipe monster-worthy (the Mummy Bites are pigs-in-blankets, with the biscuit cut in strips to simulate mummy wrappings, with mustard eyes) to brand-new concoctions just for the monsterly theme of the cookbook (Wolfsbane Elixir is a great new recipe like nothing I've seen before - and looks delicious!).
A standard introduction covers safety tips ("Your blood is a very precious thing. Just ask Dracula. To preserve all of that great red stuff it is important to follow safety rules while in the kitchen.") and very brief how-tos (measuring dry ingredients, keeping clean, etc). There is no index, but the book is short and the one-page contents doubles as an index.
