One aspect I really like about Cooking by Color: Recipes for Independence is that recipe portions are for 1 or 2, rather than 4 or 6! It really makes a difference. It can be hard for my daughter to portion out the meal, especially if it's a favorite. It's so easy to eat it all. This makes it much easier for her. I also appreciate your use of literacy principles in the design of recipe. This, too, makes a huge difference for her.

The result is a recipe template that combines best practice in health literacy and universal design for learning.
