Do you want to teach your kids the true meaning of the passion and resurrection story during this important church season? Don’t let Holy Week pass by this year without involving your kids with the true Easter and resurrection story! The Symbolic Holy Week & Easter Cookbook is chock full of meaningful and symbolic recipes to engage your children in the true meaning of these Lent and Easter seasons. Check it out!

Holy Week & Easter Symbolism Explained

Each recipe in this book has the story that goes along with that dish included on the page, so you don’t have to look anything up to enjoy the symbolism and meaning behind it. The cookbook is also divided by Lent and Easter, telling you the traditional times these recipes are made and served. 

“Seriously the most amazing resource ever! You are so awesome for putting together such a helpful book… I’m feeling so grateful for it I don’t even know how to thank you enough!… I’ve bought almost every resource you’ve made! I get sooooo excited when you come out with something new!” – Nadia from Toronto, Canada

Included In The Book:

  • 10 Holy Week recipes correlating with Palm Sunday, Spy Wednesday, Holy Thursday, Good Friday, & Holy Saturday!
  • 11 Easter recipes that celebrate the cross, Jesus, and symbols of the actual Resurrection (bunnies not included haha)
  • Tips for having “help” in the kitchen from kids
  • Symbolic meals for kids for both Holy Week and the entire Easter season
  • A ton of super beautiful and useful bonus printables!!!

Holy Week For Kids With Kid Friendly Recipes! 

These recipes are all designed to appeal to kids! There are no recipes in here telling you to make kale for Green Thursday, or heart of palm for Palm Sunday. My crew of 4 is delighted to make and eat every one of the included dishes. 😉

While a handful of these recipes are a little more involved, the overwhelming majority are designed to have tiny hands helping in the kitchen. A lot of these can be completely made by kids! 

Note that these are all fun little recipes, and while 2 tea party-type menus are included, this book does not have traditional Easter dinner recipes such as lamb, ham, seafood, etc. The recipes are comprised mostly breads and desserts. 

Over 23 Holy Week & Easter Focused Recipes!

  • Each recipe has symbolism that points towards the true meaning of Holy Week and Easter
  • Most recipes are very simple and easy for kids to help with
  • There are a few more traditional recipes included that have yeast and a little more involvement as well (such as traditional hot cross buns and Italian Easter bread!)
  • All of these recipes are so easy to follow and use in this book!!!

Great Cookbook For All Christian Kids!

Although I was born Catholic, I was actually raised by a Catholic mom and a Baptist dad. I also live in the south and many of my close friends are very devoted non-Catholic Christians. So when I tell you that this book is great for all Christian families with kids, I say that with confidence. I really think your family is going to love this cookbook! 

Here’s what one mom had to say about her experience making Easter story cookies with her children:

“When my oldest was little we would stand over the dining table and read the Good Friday story. I remember watching her flinch as we would hammer the pecans and then she would help me place the tray in the oven. Every year her face would light up when she would bite into the cookie and see the hollow. She turned 15 this past week, and it’s my prayer that all three of my kids will carry on these family traditions to their own kids to make their Easter mornings more meaningful. This year, thanks to the blessing of your cookbook, we will have new recipes to add. I look at your Family Cookbook as a way to bond families together, strengthen their faith, and through it all, remember the greatest sacrifice ever paid. A simple story read while making a recipe could be that turning point for a child to commit their hearts to Christ. Your cookbook is more than just a cookbook, Lacy. It’s so much more.” -Marina from  Mommy Snippets
