Cooking together is fun, especially during the holidays, and Cafe Zoom has over 150 recipes for you and your child to try! The printable recipes range from simple to more challenging, with easy-to-follow directions and a picture of each finished dish. 

This website is easy to use,with an Index divided into four categories: SnacksDrinksMain Courses, and Desserts. Each recipe has a Next Recipe 'browsing button' to help you find a dish with just the right amount of ingredients and steps.

The recipes were contributed by children, with selections suitable for a range of ages. Your child can vote online with a rating of the finished product.
