Shannon Kelly Scureman SAYS:

I am obsessed with candy and I work at a job where there is no opportunity for creativity; therefore, I go crazy on crafts and cooking on the weekends! I would love this book to help me have fun with my two children. I think this book would give me amazing ideas for the many parties I like to throw throughout the year. I love to give food away as gifts for Christmas and for birthdays. I would love to own this book and would treasure an autographed copy!

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!
