DOUBLE TAP TO ZOOM WITH PHONE OR TABLET acknoWledgments I would like to thank MaryAnn Kohl, my agent, my friend, and the person who encouraged me for ten years to write this book. Without her enthusiasm, help, creativity, and support, this book would not have happened. Thanks to Sue Inzero for her primary edit of this book. Her keen eye helped make this dream possible. For the beautiful photographs, special thanks to Jeff Lange. Without his flexibility and creativity, even with butter, the photographs would not have happened. Thank you to all the people at Redleaf Press, especially David Heath, my editor, for his patience and continued support. Special thanks to my cousins and friends who spent extra time helping with the photography. I am ever so grateful to Kids Club Child Care Center in Avon, New York; Pea Pods Child Care Center in Penfield, New York; and Generations Early Care and Education Centers in Rochester, New York, for allowing me to share my recipes with the children and teachers. Most important, thanks to my husband, Sam; my daughter, Brie; my parents, Anthony and Mary Anne; and my brother, Anthony. Their support was never ending! COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL ix
