About the Book
A Recipe for Every Season Cooking with Lulu Volume 1 includes a year in review of stories and favorite family recipes. It contains every day snacks and seasonal treats, to French inspired dishes and fancy wedding cake. Most importantly, this book features recipes, both old and new, that I’ve made, step by step with my little girl. She not only turned three during the production of this book, but she also helped whisk, purée, and taste every meal, snack, and dessert. All recipes included are suitable for entertaining family and friends, and they are toddler approved! All professional food photographs were captured by Nicole Bedard of The Children's Lifestyle and Food Blog, Make and Taste unless otherwise noted.
Leigh is a Middle School Teacher of French and a Mom to a busy three year old. She loves to entertain family and friends, and prepare daily dishes for her husband and daughter. Leigh’s meals are influenced by her mom’s love of cooking. Leigh also creates recipes based on her experiences of studying in the south of France. She often uses food to provide authentic experiences for her students as well. On Fridays, it’s not uncommon to see students making crèpes and sampling French “fromage,” in her classroom. Always inspired by fresh, local, and seasonal ingredients, Leigh’s dishes are simple, tasty, and always made with her family in mind. Her daughter, who started cooking alongside her mom when she was just two, is an enthusiastic helper in the kitchen. A lover of mealtime with family and warm summer nights, Leigh is excited to share some of her favorite recipes.
