Cooking through the Alphabet

When our children were young we decided to spend as much time with them as possible. Instead of going to preschool I taught them Montessori Preschool. I would come up with weeks worth of lesson plans that we would implement.

Once a week we would bake, and cook our way though the alphabet. I believe it was one of their favorite things to do. We had a great time…we had botany, zoology, science, arts and crafts, music, and we would visit a different park in the SF Bay area on Thursday. Friday we would go to SF Zoo, Oakland, or the one in Walnut Creek.

Anyway, the cooking was so much fun, so I thought that I would share some of the recipes that we used over the three years we were cooking and baking our way through the alphabet.

Measuring, tasting, smelling, are all a big part of learning, and it has been proven that smells are the first sense that takes us back to a memory. How great it is that the memories of cooking and baking will take the kids back to a time of such wonderful innocence? It makes my heart full to know the times we spent together were so happy and so fulfilling! So, this is something new I am looking forward to sharing with all or you!
