Bake Something Great!

December 3, 2018


Kid-friendly ingredients - such as cereal, graham wafers, marshmallows, chocolate chips, peanut butter and caramels - dominate, making the recipes favorites for the young as well as the young at heart. These bars are also relatively easy to make, which means that kids can help out in the kitchen because their attention span isn't taxed. Not only does baking provide an opportunity to share quality family time together, but it also helps kids develop practical skills like counting.

They'll also learn how to measure, mix and chop, preparing them for the days when they'll be responsible for food preparation themselves. I've tried to keep an eye on cleanup so they won't be daunted by it.

These foolproof recipes guarantee that kids will end up with treats they can be proud to share with their family and friends. Let them choose the recipes and make their own lunch-box treats and after-school snacks. It's fun for everyone.

Whether you are an experienced or novice baker, this book will help you to appreciate how easy and satisfying baking bars, squares and cookies can be. Baking is a great way to get the whole family into the kitchen to enjoy time together.

Whatever your tastes, whatever the occasion and whatever your timeframe, I'm sure you'll find recipes in this book that will inspire you to bake. Some recipes, perhaps those that qualify as family favorites, will bring back treasured memories. Others may seem new and - I hope - will inspire you to experiment. Whether you are baking for everyday or for a special occasion, I sincerely hope you have fun and enjoy the experience.


     Happy baking and happy eating!
