Savannah is happily getting everything ready to make some new concoction. She is usually accompanied by her cousin, Victoria. They have learned the importance of carefully reading the recipe. The first realization came when sugar was left out of sugar cookies. Another episode involved ¼ teaspoon of salt which became ¼ cup of salt.    

*Add math equations by having your baker double or triple the recipe.

My grandkids and a couple of their friends opened their own restaurant out of my kitchen and invited all the parents. They made a menu, decorated the house and worked on the dinner and serving. The important part is that reading, writing, and math were all components.
