The Braces Cookbook was created by an enterprising teenager in braces, with help from her mom (a published author of parenting books). There are more than 50 mouth-watering bracket-friendly recipes sure to satisfy even the pickiest appetites.
In addition, there are Substitution Specials (such as how to make your own soft twisty pretzels, and work-arounds for beef jerky and caramel apples). More than just a book of recipes, The Braces Cookbook contains coping tips, dental trivia, and suggestions for dining out and pampering your sore teeth on the most challenging days.
