Teaching Cooking

I have taught basic cooking to my seven children and to classes of elementary children. When my youngest daughter wanted to learn, I found that taking the recipes and making them into a step-by-step format made it easier for her, so here is a blog to hopefully make cooking easier for the beginner.

Banana Bread

This is a very flavorful bread that we have loved for a long time.  You can leave out the nuts if you don't like them (unfortunately several of my children don't...sigh)
