The Green Eggs and Ham Cookbook

Dr. Seuss saves you from green food coloring.  Try cilantro and guacamole instead.

The book includes recipes for Pink Yink Ink Drink, Cat in the Hat Pudding, and more – linking recipes to one of his stories.

My favorite:


Nupboards Nuggets from There’s a Wocket in Your Pocket

  • 2-1/2 cups uncooked oatmeal (not quick-cooking)
  • 1 cup green pumpkin seeds
  • 1 cup whole almonds
  • 1/2 cup light cooking oil
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract

Combine all ingredients, using your hands to mix.  Spread the mixture on a large baking sheet and bake at 300 degrees until browned, stirring from time to time to prevent burning.  Remove from the oven after about 45 minutes to 1 hour, and push the mixture together.  Let cool completely, then break up into clumps. May be stored in an airtight container for up to three weeks.
