Hello everybody, how are you?
Today I wanted to share this absolutely super cute video from Epicurious of these adorable kids trying foods from famous books. This has been a recurring theme of at least one summer camp week for many years now.
Each year, we hold a summer camp called Books & Baking and though I try to feature books for a bit older age group than the books featured in this video, I still find it very entertaining. I hope this makes you smile!
Does anyone remember the classic series of children's books called the Nutshell Library by Maurice Sendak? Or maybe the accompanying animation with Carole King singing the book "Chicken Soup with Rice"?

Here are just a few photos from previous Books & Baking Summer Camps.
During our weekly summer camps, we create at least five different recipes. Shopping lists and necessary tool lists will be provided with plenty of time to gather supplies prior to the camp. The cost of the week's summer camp is per household, so any siblings or friends in the same household are welcome to attend for free!
For the 2022 Summer Camp - Books & Baking, we will be creating
This particular camp is a student favorite and such a wonderful bonding activity for friends trying to avoid the summer boredom set-in. Scheduled right in the middle of the summer break, June 20 - 24th, this is a great way to keep the kids entertained and learning new and fun ways to make treats for the whole family.

I took myself out for a cup of coffee and wanted to get myself some flowers, but when I saw the line in the stores I decided to do this another day. :) Oh, and I went for a walk.
I am all about self-love/self-care right now. Just a few things, like drinking enough water, stretching occasionally when I have a computer day, eating fresh fruit, or calling a dear friend.
What do you do for self-care?
I wanted to share another recipe with you.
Have a great rest of your week!
