More About This Title The Braces Cookbook 2


Older as well as younger wearers of orthodontia will find food they can sink their teeth into with the succulent, nutritious dishes featured in this cookbook. Full of recipes encompassing breakfast, lunch, dinner, appetizers, and desserts—Double Scrambled Egg Baskets, Cherry-Chicken Salad Bites, Brazilian Expresso Pot Roast, Swiss Tomato Fondue, and Dark Vanilla Drops—this cookbook contains 50 stay-soft recipes that avoid hard, sticky, crunchy, and chewy ingredients yet offer great taste. The basic recipes aimed at beginning or moderately experienced cooks use ingredients commonly stocked in the house or at local grocery stores and can generally be prepared in 30 to 60 minutes. More adventurous chefs—or those seeking a spin on presentation—will find gourmet hints adjacent to each recipe. Tips for how to feel better on braces adjustment day, ideas for packing lunches, a glossary of orthodontic terms, and a web resource list for additional information are also included.
