The cooking instructions for each recipe of this book are divided into two distinct roles: one for the mother and one for the daughter. In this unique, team-approach to cooking, each person kws exactly what to do and when, eliminating stress and making cooking time pure bonding time. Included in the book are recipes for birthday desserts, holiday treats, and party snacks, as well as a tribute to different foods from around the country, and a fancy lunch menu. The last chapter is a guide to creating a recipe scrapbook, so readers can document what they learn, like, and experience in their kitchen for future reference and memories.
