Yearbook is mixing it up this quarter by stirring up a cookbook as its class project. One of the ingredients to the cookbook will be delicious recipes made by the students.
Students will determine what recipes they would like to be in the cookbook and write steps how to do while taking pictures to go with the steps.
Students already have some creative recipes they plan to use on their page in the book. Eighth grader Katelyn Brandon said she plans to make a spaghetti Taco recipe, while other recipes include cheesecake, brownies, and chicken.
“I’m curious to see what other people are going to make. I also want to see how well I can get the pictures to explain how to make my food,” said eighth grader Allison Snowball.
The students will have two weeks to take their photos and create a two-page design of their recipe and steps.
Yearbook adviser Jason Davis wanted to do a little something different than usual to shake things up and give the students the chance to take pictures of something that piques their interests.
“This project, like every project we do, is meant to give students the opportunity to practice photography on something outside of Cactus Canyon,” Davis said. “I like to give students some chances to take photos of what interests them because that’s how they really get interested in and ultimately improve at photography.”
The students are already enthusiastic to get cooking on their recipes and make a fantastic cookbook.
“I am looking forward to making the cookbook because I like making and eating good food It will be fun to see how students in my class use elements to take pictures of food,” said seventh grader Kaileah Goucher.
