Matisse Reid makes Pork Schnitzel for her siblings

Pat Duran


This recipe was cooked by a 12 year old who cooks for kids, and who writes for Cooking Light Magazine. Her article is called
"Kid in the Kitchen - Family Friendly.
This month she cooked this recipe for her siblings 14 and 8 year old brothers. They didn't like the dill so she replaced it with mint and lemon wedges to squeeze on the meat. Look up her blog at Matisse's Kitchen.
