Paintbrush to Pastrybrush

They Draw and Cook is fun, fun, fun. At this wonderful website illustrators use their unique styles to give recipes visual flair alongside, swirling around, or in place of the instructions. The site is great for grownup cooks, but if we had little ones around we would be printing these colorful pages off all the time for 
kitchen capers with the kiddos. 

Searching the recipe collection by ingredient we found 59 different beautiful and tasty choices for beans.

 Here are just a few to show you the variety of illustration and cooking that you may find 
at They Draw and Cook:

The creative brother-sister team of Nate and Salli host They Draw and Cook and are the figureheads of 
the Dial-a-Dinner option. Go ahead. Give it a spin!

Check out the beverages too. Its clever illustration may tempt you to try this one.
