Reading Nook

What do we like more than homemade goodies? When kids can make 'em themselves. The new book Baking Class: 50 Fun Recipes Kids Will Love to Bake! by Deanna F. Cook ($19, Storey Publishing) helps them do just that with cute ideas and step-by-step how-tos perfect for any aspiring chef -- complete with stencils, templates and achievement badges. Recipes range from savory to sweet with an emphasis on sweet. Recipe difficulty is noted by one (no oven necessary), two (oven or toaster oven baking) or three (knives, electric mixers, oven baking) rolling pins. One idea for you to file away: personalized toast. Roll a piece of foil into a letter or shape a little smaller than the piece of bread. (Try your child's first initial or a heart.) Place it in a toaster oven until brown, then carefully remove the foil to reveal the creation. Great for a birthday breakfast or back-to-school sandwich!
