While I was cleaning my kitchen today, I came across a cookbook Alyssa’s first grade teacher put together. She’d inteviewed all of her students and asked them to give her their favorite recipe. She then typed them all out and bound them in a book. Every time I read it, it’s like the first time and I find myself giggling all the way through. I, of course, immediately thought of my blog! So, without further ado, here are some great recipes! Enjoy!!

  1. That’s hilarious. You’ve got to love a kid’s perspective. Just the skewed temps and cook times. I had to wonder about the kid heating up gummy worms though…Ew.

  3. I laugh because I have been typing out first grade recipes all day!! We make a book for Mother’s day, except we tie it into our writing curriculum (ok, so I really am a teacher!!). We do “How to” books…and we make a recipe. I LOVE them. We work on “First you do this” “Next you do this”. I leave the spelling as the original soyou get a lot of tost and sandmiches. LOL
    My favorite recipe so far this year is melted ice cream. HAHAHA
    I LOVE IT!
