My Review:

Being a blogger has given me the opportunity to review many cookbooks throughout the years.  A recent one that I'm excited to let you know about is The Unofficial Hogwarts Cookbook for Kids.  Harry Potter fans of all ages will find an assortment of delicious recipes that can be tied to the popular series.

This hardcover recipe book is filled with pictures and recipes in different categories, ranging from dinner and dessert to breakfast and lunch.  Additionally, there's a section with common recipe terms and proper ways to cook safely.  Some of the recipes are fairly easy and others are a little more advanced.  None of them seem to be overly extensive or hard for a kid to make.  Each recipe includes a colored picture of the finished product.  I think this cookbook is mostly geared towards tweens or young teens who need little to no supervision in the kitchen.  

Win It!

My favorite character from Harry Potter would have to be Professor Trelawney (Emma Thompson). I know that's kind of weird but I love her!

I agree so much. we should all be reinforcing positive feedback within the comment sections. So many good points to take into consideration.
When people have good things to say about my web site London fashion it really makes positive impact.
