Rain started preschool in January and, much to my delight, was given a Scholastic book order form that dredged up fond memories from my school days. We sat down together and chose several books. One of the books was a cookbook for kids published by DK books, one of my favourite publishers.
Rain has always liked to help in the kitchen and for his 3rd Birthday we got him an apron from Natural Pod. He also took a cooking class at the community centre in the fall where they made spaghetti & meatballs, apple crisp, salad with creamy dressing, banana muffins, witches finger cookies and other tasty treats. They were given the recipes at the end of the session and the meatballs are now part of our regular repertoire.
Besides a delicious smoothie made from pineapple, coconut milk and ice cream, we also made these delicious cookies just in time for Valentine’s Day!
