I need to start getting better at including my kids in the kitchen with me. Im always in the habit of making things as quickly as I can. This would really help me to slow down and teach them some things in the kitchen with me, and have some fun while doing it!!

Adorable! I would love to win this for my kids, I make "grown up candy" with hot sugar often but they are not allowed to be part of the process due to the heat… They would be so happy to have a cookbook just for them. And candy… I mean, its CANDY!
