Baking and toddlers. I know putting those two words together strikes fear into the hearts of many. But it doesn't have to be that way. With the holidays around the corner, baking cookies and other sweet delicacies can be a rewarding experience to have with your child. Plus, homemade treats make wonderful gifts for the holidays. I can still remember shaking a bucket of spiced peanuts with my sister to give to our teachers.
But how to get around the sticky, gooey mess that could be sliding off your kitchen ceiling if you're not careful? Well, there's a book for that. Many of the cooking books in the children's section have step-by-step pictures, and less complicated recipes to try with your children. To get a start, I've compiled a list below of some useful recipe books.
