San Diego cookbook authors, Glenn and Michelle Abrams, recently released an iPad edition of their Kids-Did-It! Cookie Bookie cookbook featuring tasty recipes deliciously illustrated by Michelle's young art students.
Art Teacher Inspires Creativity with iPad Cookbook Illustrated by Kids
SAN DIEGO, CA Local San Diego resident, artist, art teacher, author and cookie baker, Michelle Abrams, along with her designer husband, Glenn, recently co-authored and published "The Kids-Did-It! Cookie Bookie Cookbook: A (fun) Cookie-Baking Cookbook for Kids, Illustrated by Kids!" featuring cookie recipes illustrated with playful animal watercolors from their Kids-Did-It! Designs® kids' art collection.
Each cookie recipe was initially inspired by one of Michelle's students' watercolors. She then created, tested and modified each recipe to complement the illustration - think extra crispy, cracked and crunchy Dragon Crisps, or delightfully light, fluffy and puffy Lamb Jams.
"It's a deliciously cute cookbook," says Michelle. "Besides being a collection of tasty and easy-to-follow dessert recipes, it's also a creative, fun-to-look-at celebration of kids and their imaginations! My personal favorites are the MoonMelts. Picture gooey marshmallow cream stuffed between two cocoa cookies floating in a colorful field of planets, moons, and stars!"
"And even better," says Glenn, "each young illustrator earns a royalty, plus and believe me, I'm not just saying this the recipes taste great! Imagine Chocolate Chipmunks, Cherry Chirps, Peanut Butterflies, Monster Mish-Mashes or Peppermint Pig Puffs."
Because the illustrations are so colorful, creative and inspirational the Abrams have provided copies of the cookbook to kid's organizations, community arts festivals and elementary schools, as well as local children's hospitals and infant care centers in support of their fund raising efforts.
"The Kids-Did-It! Cookie Bookie: A (fun) Cookie-Baking Cookbook for Kids, Illustrated by Kids!" is available in San Diego at Warwick's Books in La Jolla, CA, Great News Discount Cookware & Cooking School in Pacific Beach, CA, The Rockpile Bookstore, and the Point Loma Cabrillo Drug, in Point Loma, CA, and online at kidsdidit.com and Amazon.com. ISBN: 978-1440455629
A new iPad edition is now available from the iBookstore via Apple's iBooks application. ISBN: 978-0615390055
