As many mentioned below – My two daughters {luv} to cook with us now. My husband's mum got them interested. Every time she visits from England they make "Lemon Pudding". And it is not American style pudding. It is so delicious. We have some of our own yummy treats we make too so this book would help add more "style" and fun to these moments….. I am sure! Kudos on #2 launch!
