My First Recipe: Ellie and her Daughter

Well, my first recipe wasn't actually a recipe as such, it was a combination of things to make the evening meal in the big, loving, foster parented home I was living in. I was 16, and did all of the evening meal myself, hot corned beef, mashed (creamed) potatoes and green beans. I was SO proud of myself!


I also remember my daughter's first recipe. She was eleven at the time, and concocted something she named "Bon Orange", which was just oranges peeled and sliced up, dropped into a bowl with their juice, and sprinkled over the top with coconut. We still laugh over the memory of "Bon Orange".

And I bet fixing that first meal all by yourself sure helped your self esteem!

---> Something we should all remember in these times of "fast food families" ...


Teaching our children to cook is helpful to them in many, many ways!
