Miss Delta’s “Cool and Kooky Kids Coloring Cookbook” is available to purchase, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Rose Haven.

Marcus Oliver, owner of Miss Delta on Mississippi Avenue in North Portland, struggled during Covid-19, prompting them to create “Cool and Kooky Kids Coloring Cookbook,” which was designed to create different recipes related to their own family restaurant. The recipes in the book were created by Oliver, many of which have special ties to his family and restaurant.

“I was just starting to think of recipes that me and my kids have put together. Then some ideas from the restaurant, like our banana pudding recipe. There’re some fun, easy recipes that kids can do, and then some harder ones that would take parent involvement,” Oliver said.

Miss Delta has had a long partnership with Rose Haven as they contributed to feeding our Rose Haven community during our Thanksgiving and Christmas meals. What distinguishes the “Cool and Kooky Kids Coloring Cookbook” from other children’s cookbooks. The other distinction is how it benefits the community. A portion of the proceeds from the cookbook will be donated to Rose Haven PDX, a women’s and children’s day shelter.
