One of our members started this post as a project for her kids, and it got such unbelievable response we've made it a permanent spot (Thanks 2ndtimearound - Also check out her blog for a compilation fo books and activities mom's gave her as well !)
Essentially, it's a collection of recipes from each state....lets face it we pretty much span the globe with 5000 members. So we're trying to have at least 1 recipe for each state/Country/Province (whatever).
For those of you new to the homeschooling game: Cooking is a great way to teach many skills. Obviously math (fractions especially) with all the measuring, health (if you try to figure out all the calories and such), and even the younger crowd can learn about following directions and kitchen safety! Not to mention its a fun way to learn the uniqueness of a location your child has never seen and experienced themselves - it makes the location more real to them. So have fun working cooking into your geography lessons. (And even history we once made sour-dough starters and such to learn about the colonial period).
