Any suggestions for a chapter book to go along with a cooking (mainly baking-cakes, etc.) type unit?

Hmmm. Can't think of a chapter book right now, but a neat picture book is Fannie in the Kitchen (http://www.amazon.com/Fannie-Kitchen-Invented-Recipes-Measurements/dp/0689869975/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1308161470&sr=1-1).

Maybe In Aunt Lucy's Kitchen (http://www.amazon.com/Aunt-Lucys-Kitchen-Ready-Chapters/dp/0689817088/ref=pd_bxgy_b_text_b)

or I remember Farmer Boy (by Laura Ingalls Wilder) as being mainly about food!

Hmmm, this one sounds interesting, about a girl who wants to make the world a better place one cupcake at a time:
Close to Famous (http://www.amazon.com/Close-Famous-Joan-Bauer/dp/0670012823/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1308162555&sr=1-1)

I haven't read it and am not familiar with the author. It appears to be aimed at middle school ages. I found it through Google -- have you seen the Google page today? VEry impressive!

We are reading Farmer Boy now and it is making me SOOO hungry!! Wow, the descriptions of all the food are really fantastic. If you got the Little House Cookbook (http://www.amazon.com/Little-House-Cookbook-Frontier-Ingalls/dp/0064460908)you could make some of the foods mentioned in the book as well.
This book was the third book written (I believe), but is not a sequel to the other books. Wilder wrote the book about her husband's childhood in New York. Apparently he loved food and his mother loved to feed him as well.
