Sneak Preview

The March topic over on Ditalini Press is to write a children's book. So, I was thinking about what my children's book should be about. Should it be a fantasy, about the alphabet, numbers, or something regarding everyday life? After to careful pondering, the idea hit me like a ton of bricks...cooking! ... Cooking with Daddy!

I have not seen one single children's book about cooking, or kids cooking with their parents anywhere. I love to cook and I fear that preparing foods from scratch is something that is not being taught to today's youth. Too many pre-made "convenience" meals if you ask me. Too much fast food infiltrating the everyday lives of many Americans.

The book is due by the end of the month so please check it out. If you've never been there before, Ditalini Press is a wonderful creative writing site; and I'm sure you will enjoy the many imaginative and inspired children's stories that will be posted soon. I hope you enjoy Cooking with Daddy. Look for it soon!


  1. This is so amazingly good. Great job, Luke. Will there be recipes thrown in with the text?

  2. Thanks Eva! Ideally, I would like to make a series of books, each focusing on a different recipe; and I will include the recipe at the end of the text. In the book I am doing right now, I am writing about making chocolate chip cookies. I would also like to do books about pizza, buscuits, and maybe grilling. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!

  3. I like this cover book a lot and i cant wait to read this book yehhhh
    And i am waiting for your next book too : washing the dishes with my wife
    I can imagine Valerie smile as such as Ari on the cover
    By the way Valerie : Thank`s for discovering the fat cleaning property of the baking soda
    Eva & me cleaned our whole stove with it
    ohhhh yehhhh

  4. awww!!! this is so great!!! I'm excited :0)

  5. Hey Daniel, I think the washing dishes with my wife book is going to be put on the back burner for a while, pun intended. Besides, I don't really want to start writing books of fiction just yet.

  6. Fiction becomes often reality
    Look at Jules Verne when he wrote in 1865 "from the earth to the moon"
    Armstrong put his feet on it a hundred year later and he probably did'nt wash the dishes with his wife
