Betty Crocker's Cookbook for Boys & Girls...Giveaway



Cooking it can be a chore, a hobby, or just plain fun!
For some people cooking is just something they do to fill tummies,
     and for others it's creating something yummy to please others.
In our family cooking is a true mix of many things...
on busy days it's to fill tummies,
other days it's for creating and experimenting a new found recipe,
at times it's to test and learn about food from a different country.
Then there are the times of just plain old fun cooking,
where the children join in and it's as much about the fellowship as it is the meal.
The wonderful thing about fun cooking with children is everyone has a fantastic time
making memories while creating something scrumptious....
and littles are learning multiple skills like,
Math, Science, Health, Communication, Fine Motor Skills, and Patience :) 
 
We are a family who enjoys cooking,
then fellowshipping around the table with tasty foods....
often times created by many hands:)
 
 
This cookbook Arthur and I found a few weeks ago,
in a quaint little shop while out of town.
I feel in love with it as soon as I saw the cover,
once I opened it I knew I had to have one for our children.
The recipes are basic and simple,
the pictures cute as can be.....
I am drawn to all things old, this book was first published in 1957 :)
 




*Betty Crocker's Cookbook
for Boys and Girls
 

Betty Crocker's classic cookbook for children is back-in an authentic reproduction of the original 1957 edition

A whole generation of Baby Boomers grew up with Betty Crocker's Cookbook for Boys and Girls, and they have helped to make it the one of the most requested titles in the Betty Crocker archives. Now back by popular demand, this timeless favorite stands ready to capture the hearts of a new generation of budding cooks. Packed with recipes that are just as popular with kids today as they were 45 years ago, it shows how to make everything from Ice Cream Cone Cakes and Pigs in Blankets to Cheese Dreams and Sloppy Joes. The small format, easy recipes, charming color illustrations and photographs, and even the cover, are all the same as they were in the 1957 edition-and just as delightful as ever. The only innovation is the concealed wire binding that lies flat for easy cooking while being sturdy enough to withstand energetic handling by kids in the kitchen. It's the ideal book to give or to keep, for retro appeal, and for getting today's kids started in the kitchen.

Now this makes me feel old! This is the cookbook I learned to cook from, probably 1960 or thereabouts. Mine is in tatters. I would love to win this to use with my grandchildren.

My mom (Mrs. T who commented above) still has her original copy of this book and I remember looking through it often (and probably cooking some stuff out of it too) when I was a kid! I'd love to win a copy to enjoy with my own kiddos!

It's too bad I always miss your giveaways (being in a different time zone in the US), but my sister and I had this book growing up and remember the cover art fondly (we were born in the 60's). I am so glad you posted this -- I looked for a kids' cookbook years ago when my kids were smaller and there was really nothing out there. I'm going to buy a copy of this -- my 10yo will be thrilled! :)
