Kindergarten holiday cookbook yields heaping helping of smiles

It has been a Christmas tradition for many years for the kindergarten students at Aurelia to write their own cookbooks.

The teachers over the years have taken time to sit with each student, ask him or her a favorite recipe and write it down in their own terms.

Current teacher Tanya Wilkinson commented that sometimes she has to "pull" out everything from the students that don't have a real concept of cooking and sometimes the students go on and on - all on their own.

The recipes are bound together in a book and each student takes a wrapped book home for the parents to open at Christmas.

The books are keepsakes often enjoyed for many years.

Here are the recipes that are included in this year's books. Perhaps you may wish to try some during your own holiday cooking...
