I was given a copy of this book when Josh was quite small so I haven't pulled it out much until now. It's got some great ideas and recipes in it for cooking WITH children. This is something I really want to start doing with Josh. He is at an age where he is interested in everything in his little world and wants to get involved. I feel like I need to let him explore that a bit more and instead of being fussy in the kitchen which I am prone to do (just ask my husband!) I'm going to make a concerted effort to let him help me out more and to cook things together.
I remember baking cakes with my mother as a child, with the all-important bowl/spoon licking ritual at the end. I have fond memories of it and it would be nice to start creating memories with my own children in that regard.
I'm getting the ball rolling this afternoon by baking an easy chocolate cake from the Small Fry book with Josh. I'm sure it will go down a treat!
Anyway, as I start this little goal of mine, I thought I would offer a copy of the book to someone as my first giveaway, so to win, all you have to do is leave me a comment saying why you would love to win the book! Easy! Entries will close next Wednesday at 6pm and I'll announce the winner on Thursday morning.
I'll be back later to share photos of the baking if I'm brave enough!
