Dave commented on 5 Minute Monster Meals

Five to 15 minutes can definitely work -- especially if the book is broken down with advance prep.

The book should not just focus on the food (but should primarily) but should also provide tools to help them notice what is interesting in their children. presentation might be more interesting to my daughter versus my son who loves to knead whole wheat pizza dough!
