You're having a fancy party and planning the menu. For starters choose the Pickle Jar Jar and Amidala Challah. For a main course move on to Padmé Pad Thai and Darth Double Dogs. Top it all off with some Hideous Sidious Sorbet or a Darth Malt. It's a party perfect for Star Wars fans of all ages. Who could possibly pass up a Midi-chlorian Concoction or Darth Maul dip so realistic it comes with a template to make the terrifying red and black face? You'll find all this and more in the sequel cookbook, The Star Wars Cookbook II by Frankie Frankeny and Wesley Martin.

The cookbook combines fun and easy recipes that are truly kid-friendly, with those that also require the help of Masters of the Force - aka Mom and Dad. The creators emphasize enjoying cooking, but also working safely in the kitchen. And adults won't find themselves shuttling between stores to track down ingredients, as most recipes have easily obtainable ingredients. For those who cook messily, it's helpful that the pages also wipe clean.

The cookbook's creators have sprinkled cleverly named and tasty recipes throughout the book. Hungry young Jedis can find everything from snacks to breakfasts to drinks to main dishes and desserts. Also appealing to young cooks are the action figures decorating pizzas and celery forests. Even healthy recipes are included, that might just use the Force to get budding Jedi apprentices to eat broccoli and salad - a true accomplishment. As you munch your way through these yummy recipes, just remember, May the Fork be With You.
