Food for Thought, Quick and Easy Recipes for Homeschooling Families, Guest Post by Lorilyn Roberts

 New Cookbook Helps Homeschooling Mothers Prepare Easy Meals;
And Teach Academics Right From the Kitchen

Take the monotony out of cooking and make homeschooling fun with Food For Thought: Quick and Easy Recipes for Homeschooling Families. “Homeschooling shouldn’t just include sitting around a table poring over books,” says author Lorilyn Roberts, a homeschooling mom for fifteen years. “That’s boring,” Mothers will find encouraging quotes from noteworthy individuals and imaginative homeschooling ideas. “Perhaps the greatest gift we can give our kids is to encourage creativity,” says Roberts. “We can use cooking not only to make tasty meals but to engage our children in thoughtful discussions about philosophy, history, sociology, reading, and the Bible.”

Each chapter is preceded with a unique suggestion to enrich a child’s homeschooling academic studies; i.e., how school-aged children can “buy” rice to feed the poor in developing countries. One chapter is devoted to easy recipes for the young cook. “Worms in Dirt and Crazy Cupcakes were among my kids’ favorites,” says Roberts. Food for Thought: Quick and Easy Recipes for Homeschooling Families presents an innovative way for families to cook, learn, and serve others both at home and around the world.

Chapter Headings (72 recipes with photos):

·         Quick and Easy Dinners
·         Easy Meals for Young Cooks
·         Cheap Eating – Tight Budgets
·         Soups for the Soul
·         Cool Salads for Hot Days
·         Sweets for High Achievers
·         Extras, Extras

Despite being a single mother, Roberts homeschooled both her daughters—the older one through high school. She believes a free democracy resides in the conservative values homeschooling families instill in their offspring—the future leaders of tomorrow.

“If we fail to teach our children how to live out their Christian faith practically, we will have lost an opportunity to impact the world for good. It only takes one generation to forget the past. As JRR Tolkien said, ‘There is some good in this world and it’s worth fighting for.’”

Lorilyn Roberts is a Christian eclectic writer who enjoys writing in many different genres.

Lorilyn graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Alabama in 1991. Her studies included spending two weeks in Israel at the start of the Gulf War and touring England, Australia, New Zealand, and several countries in Europe. She later attended the Institute of Children’s Literature and earned her Master of Arts in Creative Writing from Perelandra College.

When Lorilyn was in fifth grade, a teacher accused her of plagiarism in front of her classmates. Little did Lorilyn know the humiliation of that would later lead to a career in writing. When not writing, Lorilyn is busy watching television providing closed captioning for television.

Lorilyn says, “When I start to doubt that anyone is reading my books, I remind myself of the millions of people who have read my captions, even all of my mistakes. The best thing about creative writing is you can make your words perfect. With captioning, it’s live and you only get one chance to get it right.”

Lorilyn has two daughters whom she adopted from Nepal and Vietnam as a single mother. She homeschooled both of them, the older one through high school, and believes that the hope of the United States may rest on the conservative values homeschooling families instill in their offspring.

“If we fail to teach our children how to live out their Christian faith practically, we will have lost an opportunity to impact the world for good. It only takes one generation to forget the past. Homeschooling families can restore those values before it is too late. As JRR Tolkien said, ‘There is some good in this world and it’s worth fighting for.’”

  1. Food Marketing Services and restaurant marketing presents a unique challenge: advertisers need to convey major components of their products (taste, smell, feel) without being able to engage those very same senses. This means, of course, that food advertising has to pull out all the stops to create a visceral message that gets a product across without very much reliance on the product itself. Let’s take a look at what marketers in other industries can extrapolate from these successes.

  2. Their is a big set of chemicals that control mood through the neurotransmitters in the brain led by the pleasure drug serotonin. These substances determine whether you feel good and energetic or tired, irritable, and spaced out. - See more at: Food Marketing Services

  3. This book looks great! I was home schooled for kindergarten and my mom had books like this one for us...we made candles, saw how water went up a celery stalk with colored water, etc. I don't think she ever had one specifically for food but it is a nice idea!
