Announcing Kids Cook Book Soup!

Monday, September 21st, 2009

kids cook book soupKids are back in school, fall is in the air, and the autumn harvest is in full swing. Now it’s time for your kids to hit the books … in the kitchen! I’m sure I don’t have to tell you that reading with your young children helps build language skills. And you’ve probably gathered that I’m a proponent of letting kids have fun in the kitchen from a young age. Now here’s your chance to combine the two in a fun new monthly blog event, Kids Cook Book Soup!

How it Works: Each month, we’ll pick a theme. Your assignment is to choose a story that relates to the theme — any book, not necessarily a cook book, or even a magazine or newspaper article — and prepare a recipe inspired by that story. You’ll send me a link to your post &/or picture (no blog needed to participate), a note about the story chosen and recipe, and we’ll post the round-up right here, on the 3rd Tuesday of the month.

The theme for the first round-up is: Apples! Send your stories to me by Sunday, October 18, and the round-up will be posted that Tuesday, the 20th. Stay tuned for more details, but plans are in the works to offer a prize of some sort, to a randomly-selected participant.
