I saw Bringing Up Bebé at the Library the other day and picked it up. Such a fun read! I love reading about what we (former *sniff*) language teachers call "small c" culture-the real life sorts of things that make countries different. This book was chock full of "small c" culture, interesting and funny. It's my kind of parenting book too-all about limits and being firm and encouraging independence.
One of the items discussed was baking with children-and she includes a recipe for gateau au yaourt (yogurt cake) that French kids learn to bake all by themselves. (Here's another Mama's post about it-with recipe) Sounds like fun to me.
Anna made it all by herself!
I couldn't find whole milk yogurt, so we used nonfat, and a little basket of raspberries. Could use more, I think.
Then, because we had fresh cake and it was recommended to serve it with tea, Anna decided we should have a tea party.
