Have you ever made a meal from a recipe? In this blog, you’ll find some favorite recipes from Classtopians. Some people use recipes to cook and some people are able to make food from “scratch”. When you are young you may need to use a recipe to begin cooking because you won’t know the right amount to use. So, using a recipe will help you figure out what to do. Later on when you are older you can experiment in making the meal.
Most recipes are passed down in families and sometimes friends share recipes. If you have a special recipe that you love, share it with someone you know.
