Bake through the Bible: 20 fun cooking activities to explore the Bible story with young children by Susie Bentley-Taylor and Bekah Moore
This new cookbook is not your average Betty Crocker spiral bound cooking guide. Rather, this cookbook combines simple recipes that you can make with your children while exploring the biblical story that goes along with the recipe. My 5 year old daughter and I made Creation cookies this week and had a blast doing it! Rylee helped me pour the ingredients into a big bowl, roll the dough with a rolling pin, and decorate the cookies with sprinkles and candies. We had a great time cooking including following the creation story of Genesis 1.
The cookbook has a great layout that combines a Scriptural retelling, a prayer, ingredients and equipment list, and step by step directions. Included in the process is some questions to ask your children about the story to help them think through the meaning and apply God’s word to everyday situations. What is amazing about this book also was the stunning pictures and images throughout the recipes. I could really get a handle on what we were trying to make as I looked through the recipe. Our cookies didn’t turn out to be in the best shapes since we had a limited amount of cookie cutters but they tasted great. Even more, my daughter and I had a great conversation about all the things that God has made in his world. Good times were had by all and we will certainly be using this cookbook throughout the year.
