I'm finishing up a handmade cookbook for my niece. It's filled with recipes from family and friends. On the front page I want something special -- I just don't know what. This is (hopefully) a keepsake book that she can add photos to as well as more recipes. Can you ladies suggest a poem, or something for the first page? Thanks.

  • How about this cute poem? I'm not sure how old your niece is but I'm a grown woman and would like it if it were on the front of a cookbook for me. :)
    When you're cooking in the kitchen,
    You're learning all the while --
    To pour and measure, mix and stir
    And sift flour into a pile.

    Scrub your hands before you start
    Then gather up the gear --
    Like pots'n pans and measuring cups
    That you use throughout the year.

    Go over the recipe, step-by-step,
    So you'll know just what to do.
    By carefully following the directions,
    It won't be hard for you.

    Besides the fun and learning,
    There's always cleaning up to do,
    And even though it's quite a chore,
    It's part of cooking too.

    But after all the work is done,
    It will soon be time for dinner.
    And when someone asks for seconds,
    You'll know you've cooked a winner!

  • Why not a collage of photos of people whose recipes are in the book?
