Reading about Amara and her grandmother baking brought back fond memories yesterday.
When our children were young, we had a good supply of kid cookbooks. Not only was it quality, family "bonding" time, there were many memorable "good friends, good times" occasions and triumphs such as First Prize for a Little Mermaid cake (16 bottles of food colouring!!) at our local fair.
Cookbooks also taught my kids how to read. Wanting to figure out a recipe was super motivation!

Too Many Cooks in the Kitchen? No Such Thing!
