My first cookbook!

Do you remember the first cookbook you ever used? I do, it was the Peanuts Cookbook! Written by Charles Schultz, it was a children’s cookbook. I remember it had a pink and green cover, with Linus on the front wearing an apron. It was printed in 1969, my Mom bought it for me, I think I was 10.

I wish I still had it! I remember making a few of the recipes out of it and having such a feeling of accomplishment! If I remember correctly there was a recipe for peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, too funny! I didn’t cook much back then, my Mom did most of that! But I did enjoy it! I think cooking empowers children. I think that if you can make food yourself that is a pretty big deal for a child!
