Eighteen years ago when I started teaching, Mother's Day showed up and I was without a clue what to do for these special ladies. (Those were pre-Pinterest days of course.) I believe it was Marsha Hood, one of my first grade teaching friends, who told me about the Mother's Day Cookbook. I've changed it up and made it my own throughout the years. Here's a little peek at what it looks like today.
The above page is on the inside of the cover. I can't remember where I found the recipe. All I know is that I can't take credit for it. (I hope the picture is small enough that you can't see faces! Don't look too hard please.)
This is an example of two pages from the cookbook. I fold it in half and can fit two recipes per page. (I love the Breast Cancer Cookies.) They all turn out very cute, and the mothers get a kick out of them. Most likely some mother will remind her 40-year old son about that Breast Cancer Cookie recipe he put in her Mother's Day cookbook back in first grade. Sweet memories.
If you didn't get a chance to see the beautifully framed poems my kids wrote for their mothers as well, you can see them here.
