I saw a blurb about this book in the current issue of Cookies. The writer, Emily Franklin, talks about cooking, and the adventures that go with it, for 4 kids. She captures you from the beginning, just her talking about herding her kids out the door to school is hysterical! Any mother can relate. She, also, talks about how she dreams about food and cooking, I thought I was the only one who did that. She includes recipes, some of which I am going to have to try.
