Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Danielle Williams
Most kids love to cook. Give them simple chores to do during dinnertime and you not only have the opportunity to light a spark for cooking that could last them a lifetime, but you have the chance to spend quality time with your child. While cooking in the kitchen at home is a fun activity, cooking outside can be even more fun. White has written a colorful and fun book filled with recipes designed to be cooked by children outdoors. White begins by describing the tools and supplies needed when going on a camping trip and planning to cook outside. Basic supplies are listed, as well as a few fun activities that will help children create things not strictly necessary but that can add a fun dimension to the trip. Safety information and basic conservation information are included in the first chapter, followed by chapters that emphasize different methods of outdoor cooking. The recipes are simple enough for children to create on their own and fun enough that, with slight modification, can be cooked at home, too.

Meet the Author

Kate White

Debra Spina Dixon is a native of Northern California, who has been creating award-winning illustrations for eleven years. Her colorful work has appeared in numerous national publications and advertising campaigns. Currently, she lives in beautiful Portland, Oregon, with her husband, two children, and faithful dog, Remi.

Biography

As the editor-in-chief of famed magazine Cosmopolitan, Kate White knows women inside and out. She knows what women like, and she especially knows what they like to read. So it's no surprise that her deliciously decadent mystery novels are such a hit with the ladies.

White came from a strong background in the magazine world. Since getting her foot in the door at Glamour magazine by winning their Top Ten College Women contest, she has worked as an editorial assistant at Glamour, later becoming a feature writer and columnist for the magazine. Following her stint at Glamour, she worked her way up to editor-in-chief for Child, then Working Woman, McCall's, and Redbook. In 1998, White became editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan.

Since joining the ranks of Cosmo, White has spear-headed a spin-off magazine called Cosmo Style, started a channel called Cosmo Radio on Sirius Radio, and published books such as Cosmo Kama Sutra through the magazine's Cosmo Books. She is also responsible for driving Cosmopolitan's readership through the roof. Since taking control of the magazine, she has increased its circulation by over 500,000. So, how can a woman with such a full plate find time to also launch a successful fiction-writing career? Well, as she says on her web site, "I don't really have any other hobbies other than cooking. I can't sing, play a musical instrument, excel at sports, draw, quilt, knit or decoupage. So writing mysteries is my hobby."

That hobby has led White to create sultry true-crime reporter Bailey Weggins, who has sashayed her way through three novels since If Looks Could Kill was published in 2002. The following year, Weggins reappeared in White's second perfect-for-the-beach mystery. A Body to Die For is rife with White's trademark wit and sexiness and became another big seller. The book not only pleased White's readers but also garnered her some well-deserved praise from the press. Publishers Weekly, which was critical of If Looks Could Kill, applauded A Body to Die For, saying that "fans will find Bailey's sassy wit as engaging as ever and are sure to admire the skill with which White pulls together all the threads."

In 2005, White published her third Bailey Weggins novel, Over Her Dead Body. This time out, Bailey loses her job at Gloss magazine (no doubt a fictional stand-in for Cosmo). However, things get hotter than ever when she begins covering celebrity crime for Buzz magazine and her new boss is murdered. Again, White is pleasing fans and critics alike.

White's most recent release is a brief break from Weggins's exploits, but it certainly isn't a break from the kind of sly blend of humor and sex that readers have come to expect from her. How to Set His Thighs on Fire: 86 Red-Hot Lessons on Love, Life, Men, and (Especially) Sex is a slightly satirical, high-spirited take on the kinds of self-help guides found in women's mags such as, well, Cosmopolitan. But fans of Bailey Weggins should not fear -- White is currently working on the next installment of her hit series.

Read an Excerpt

Buddy Burner

A buddy burner is a small, easy-to-make stove perfect for cooking small amounts of food for one or two hungry campers. You make a buddy burner in a can. You'll want to make yours at least a day in advance.

What you need:

short, squat cans (like tuna, pet food, or pineapple cans)

corrugated cardboard, free from bright inks, wax, or tape

melted wax

What you do:

1. Cut strips of cardboard that are as tall as your can is high. Cut across the corrugation, so you can see the holes in the edge of the cardboard.

2. Roll up the cardboard and fit it snugly into the can. Cut a thin strip of cardboard 1/2-inch taller than the can. Put this strip in the spiral so it sticks out of the can. This is your wick.

3. Pour melted wax into the can, almost covering the cardboard.

Ta-da! You've made a buddy burner. Repeat this process to make as many as you'd like. When you're ready to cook, simply light the wick! You can use your slow-burning buddy burner to cook some of the recipes in this book. Another simple recipe you can make is toast. Using tongs, just hold a piece of bread above your buddy burner to make toast.

A buddy burner should last for about an hour, but you may add chunks of wax when it's lit to add more fuel and increase cooking time. When finished, cover your buddy burner with a piece of foil larger than the mouth of the burner to put the fire out. Don't move the burner until the wax is hard and cool.

Howlin' Good Pizza Soup

Main dish

Make this recipe in a can

Serves 4 to 6

What you need:

1 tablespoon butter

1 cup sliced mushroom, green pepper, onion, or combination

1 cup meat (ground sausage, ground hamburger, or pepperoni chunks)

1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce

1 can (15 ounces) stewed tomatoes

1 to 2 cups beef broth, vegetable broth, or water

shredded mozzarella cheese (optional)

goldfish crackers (optional)

What you do:

1. Preheat the can by placing it in or over the heat source. Wear oven mitts and use tongs when handling the hot can.

2. Melt the butter in the can. If your meat is raw, add it to the butter and stir with a wooden spoon or a clean stick until it is well browned.

3. Add the vegetables and stir until well cooked (about 3 minutes).

4. Add the tomato sauce, tomatoes, and broth. (Add the meat if it's precooked.)

5. Cover your soup with aluminum foil and cook until warm, about 15 minutes.

6. Top with mozzarella cheese or goldfish crackers, if using, and serve.

This soup is great served with a grilled cheese sandwich.

You can also make this recipe on a stove or grill.
