Food, Glorious Food!

     Ok, so this may sound like a strange title, but food is a great thing.

     Now many Aspies struggle with math.  I myself have problems with it to this day and look forward to it with about as much joy as Jane Grey facing her executioner.  And, no, I am not being overly dramatic, as many Aspies can attest.

     However, I found some release from this problem when I started baking.  Suddenly, fractions were much easier, I swear!  You don't have to be the next Paula Deen to be able to make a batch of chocolate- chip cookies and baking really does help you understand math, especially fractions.

     Try baking with friends or even by yourself, (if you're allowed to!).  You'll find it is extremely fun!

  1. Baking is fun :) I've been baking for years.

    Math hasn't really been a problem for me, but there was a few things i struggled with.
    I always calculated the answers in my head, and if we had to write in our books how we found the right answer, i always forgot how to do it!
    Every single time!
    I "learned" it so many times, over and over, but the next day
    i had no clue.
    I didn't understand why we did this and that when finding the answers, cause it was a different way than what i did in my head :P
