Funny Food Book Review

Hello! Yes, I'm back. I apologize for the lengthy absence. Will you forgive me if I give you a good reason? Like...I had a baby!!! So, what better way to jump back into the food blogging world than with a review of the new book from Welcome Books, "Funny Food: 365 Fun, Healthy, Silly, Creative Breakfasts"? I was recently offered a copy of this book that combines my love of food with my new role of parent (how did they know?). I'm sure I'll need lots of ideas and inspiration when the time comes to make breakfast for my little one and this super cute book has tons of colorful & interesting ways to make eating healthy in the morning fun.

Written by husband and wife team Bill & Claire Wurtzel (a jazz musician & and educator, respectively), what grew out of a life-long love of having fun with food, their focus now is on helping families find new & creative ways to eat healthy food in simple, easy ways. Every page is filled with photos of whimsical depictions of faces, people and scenes in chapters titled Eggs, Waffles & Pancakes, Oatmeal, Cereal & Fruit, and Toast, Bagels and Snacks. But this is not your average 'play with your food' book, they take making pictures with your food to a whole new level. Take a look!

They even include Step-By-Directions:

This book is sure to be a fun way for you and your kids to make and eat healthy meals together. You can pick up a copy at your local bookstore or at!
