Learning to Read Recipes

by Jean Dignard

Before I learned to read well, I would bake items from memory. I had made these things many times before and knew what ingredients to use.

Now that I can read much better, I can try new and different recipes because I can read the instructions by myself. I like to bake cookies, muffins, tea biscuits, and pies. Things that I bake, I share with my husband and my friends in the upgrading program at the Captain William Spry Public Library.
