My son Nickolas LOVES cooking with mama but it usually ends up being "grown up food." I can't imagine how excited he would be to have a book filled with fun foods that are JUST FOR HIM! This looks like so much fun!

This would be a great way for me to bond with my nieces and nephews, I am the fun Aunt and need some cute ideas for the little ones to do when they come visit! More than just spending time together, they love candy and sweets…let alone making it! They and I would love to have this book to play! Perfect thing to do together for a long time to come!

I totally need a copy of this fun filled book! My little sister is turning 8 this month and this would be the perfect addition to make her birthday gift extra special! She’s a little Betty Crocker in the making! Nothing would be greater than crafting fun treats side by side with her! And my almost 2 year old would love to be the taste tester!

I would love to win this book. My daughter loves to be in the kitchen and this book would give us so much more time in there as well as many other different ideas to do with recipes we currently have and to try new ones as well. She loves to share her new creativity in the kitchen with family and Friends. Plus I love being in there with her, brings back childhood memories of baking and cooking with my grandmother. :)
