Star Wars Cookbook II

If you’re like me, grinning from ear-to-ear having seen the latest Star Wars installment “The Last Jedi“!  In anticipation of the film, I looked on my library’s website for what material from the cannon they had available.  As it turned out, they had LOADS!

Star Wars films, Star Wars soundtracks, Star Wars books, Star Wars audio books, William Shakespeare‘s Star Wars books — AND THIS — The Star Wars Cookbook II -Darth Malt and More Galactic Recipes by Frankie Frankeny &‎ Wesley Martin.

Being into sci-fi, and soon to publish my own first baking/cooking book, I’ve started to look at recipe books with a different eye, and when it came to this Star Wars cookbook … I Simply Had To Check This Out!

Geared toward kids, over the course of its 60 wipe-clean pages it features hilarious photographs and fun Star Wars themed recipes.  This second installment of The Star Wars Cookbook series even includes a washable plastic stencil of Darth Maul’s iconic face to help decorate culinary creations.  This book doesn’t teach kids to play with their food but instead to get creative with cooking — while helping to bring them into the kitchen to learn to cook without the use of Jedi mind-control tricks.  Adults as well as kids will have a great time with this book.

Cling Wrap — A Pro Tip

Cling wrap — ever have problems getting it to stay on your food? Here’s a pro-tip — don’t put cling-wrap on your food, put your food on your cling-wrap!

Yep — all sorts of problems can follow when cling wrap gets pulled out of the box, put over food, torn off … but instead, try this…

On a clean surface clear of other items, put your box of cling wrap down with the opening pointing away from you. Pull a large section out (+/- 2 times the size of the plate you look to cover) and lay it down on the surface, the box will ‘hold’ the other end straight for you. Next, place the plate you wish to wrap *on* the cling wrap and bring the lose end up & over the plate to start covering your food. Rip the other end of the cling wrap off of the box and fold it over the plate & cling-wrap. Repeat as necessary to get everything covered as needed.

A box of cling wrap with a slide cutter makes this easier over those with the saw blade, but with some careful attention those will work just as well.
