Family Cook Book

Many mornings are spent around our kitchen table consuming large amounts of Luke's famous french toast.  A variety of toppings included, each person having their favorite; butter, jam, peanut butter, and maple syrup.  My 7 year old boy has been cooking a lot this year, in fact, and has decided to make us a family cookbook.  A collection of all the new recipes he's learning to cook.  I was thrilled.  Jake started this very same project many years ago, and it's fun to see how our tastes have changed!  I suspected Luke's interest would fizzle, but he has steadily worked on it over the long winter months.  I've even been allowed to add a few of my favorite recipes.

Yesterday, we made gluten free cornbread.  Yes, I'll be adding this one to the book, too.

Gluten Free Corn Bread
1 1/4 c. gluten free flour
3/4 c. corn meal
1/4 c. sugar
2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1 c. milk
1/4 c. vegetable oil
1 egg

Combine all the ingredients and mix until moistened.  Pour into a greased pan and bake at 400 degrees until top is golden brown.

What are some of your favorite family recipes?


  1. Yum!!! My little man loves helping out in the kitchen and I am sure will be giving it a go on his own soon. Right now family baking favs are banana muffins and carrot zucchini bread.

  2. mmmm.... We love banana muffins, too! I didn't think of using carrots in zucchini bread. What a great way to use up the older carrot sticks. :)
