I find connections among books, art, music, libraries, travel, crafts and food.

Hogwarts Puppets

My son Jack and I (well, mostly I) made these for his class. He had to make some kind of art project related to a book he'd read.

 I like pie. I like to make pie. I make the best crust ever made. This is an apple pie. It was amazing.
Kids only ever want chocolate chip cookies. I just use the recipe on the bag of chips. My mother could never follow a recipe. She would always do something hideous like substitute apple sauce for sugar.

 The O'Hara family Peach Pie recipe. A cup of cream and a lot of sugar. Heaven.
 We use the Joy of Cooking Hollandaise Sauce recipe for our Eggs Benedict, which has become a breakfast-in-bed tradition for family birthdays.
Jack's so happy to be woken up to breakfast in bed. OK, maybe he was more happy about the package.
