Cooking For Therapy
I am working on doing a feeding group and integrating some simple food play/cooking/interaction. With the population that I am working with, there will not be a lot of full blown cooking involved, but we will have fun with food. We will play with messy food, and make things out of food materials.
In my internet wanderings, I came across a website devoted to cooking with kids, and I may use some of their recipes. They have some e-books about kids cooking classes and kids cooking camp. I will see what I use. There is also a blog on her site, and a lot of free recipes and cooking ideas.
As I do my cooking/fun with food groups, I will post more about it.

Tonya, did you catch the great link Patrick Black shared the other day for Your Special Chef?
There are photo recipes for non-readers and teacher lessons to go with the recipes…a very nice resource that you might want to look into!
Oooh. I have not seen that site. Thank you for posting that. I will have to check that out more thoroughly soon.
I just blogged about that website. It is amazing. Don’t forget to check out the resource page on adapted cooking tools.
