I’m not sure if you could hear me shouting for joy in celebration all the way from my computer here in Nebraska, and just be ever so grateful that you couldn’t see me dancing with happiness. (I have no idea how to dance – it ain’t purty.)
I’m always excited when I complete a new ebook for our shop, but just as with the Learn Your Letters, Learn to Serve curriculum kit I completed last year, these two new books: Learn to Cook and Teaching Your Kids to Cook were a much bigger project and took up a lot more time than a typical ebook. Completing these projects has been a huge endeavor, and I’m so thankful to my family who has lovingly supported and helped me in extra ways over the past few months.
I love writing and have enjoyed everything I’ve written up to this point, but I have to say that writing Learn to Cook and Teaching Your Kids to Cook has been my most enjoyable writing experience ever! I put my heart into these books, writing what I would have loved to receive as a youth, and writing what I feel will help parents most as they teach their kids to cook. My goal has been to inspire, encourage and to give you tools to equip your kids with the skills they need in the kitchen. And of course, if I can help anyone learn to love cooking and serving others with the gift of food, that would just be the icing on the cake!
Teaching Your Kids to Cook is written for parents who desire to spend time helping their children learn their way around the kitchen. Filled with instructions, tips, activities, printables and over 45 simple, kid friendly recipes – you and your kids will have many opportunities to make messes together and get chocolate in your hair. Here’s hoping your kids learn how to put basic meals and treats together and learn to serve others too!
Learn to Cook is written to anyone old enough to use a stove (I’d say ages 8 and up). Not only for kids, this book is also helpful for adults who are new to cooking. This book can be handed directly to “the student” and while you should certainly be available to guide them along as they learn new kitchen skills, your sons and daughters, newlyweds and cooking novices can read Learn to Cook on their own and take off with all of the new skills they are learning! From measuring to menu planning to grocery budgeting – this book covers all the kitchen basics. Not to mention, it includes over 55 simple to prepare recipes!
Our goal is to offer these books (both downloadable and printed varieties) in our shop this weekend!!!! (Uh-oh, I feel a happy dance coming on again.) We’ll share free samples of the books so that you can peek inside get a better idea of what the books include. We’ll also put together a package deal so that if you feel that both books match your families needs, you can buy them at a discount.
While we put on the final touches, let’s celebrate with a giveaway! We’ll give away one copy of each book (the downloadable copy) and will announce the winners on Friday, July 29.
If you’re interested in winning one of these books, leave a comment on this post letting us know which book sounds the best for you and your family.
If you’re interested in joining me in my happy dance, feel free to jump right out of your chair and participate. Just don’t be surprised if my clumsy dancing knocks you over. I apologize in advance.
